Echinodorus 'Red Flame'

Echinodorus 'Red Flame' is a protected variety that originates from the nursery Hans Barth in Germany. It is said to be selected from a stock of Echinodorus 'Ozelot' and differs from this variety by the much more conspicuous red patches. The submerged leaves are basically red-brown but with beautiful dark red patches and the plant holds therefore a high value as solitary eye catcher in the aquarium. See Echinodorus osiris for more information on growth requirements.

Echinodorus 'Rosé'

Tn_roseech
Echinodorus 'Rosé' is ahybrid between E. horizontalis and E. horemanii"Rot" and was first produced by H. Barth in Dessau, the former Eastern Germany. On submerged plants the old leaves are brownish-green whereas the youngleaves are beautifully red coloured whereas the emergent leaves are yellow-green. It is a very sturdy plant which does not require any special conditions. It does,however, prefer a relatively fertile substrate as mostother fast growing plants. Many other new hybrid aquarium plants are quite difficult to culture in the aquarium but Echinodorus 'Rosé' is very modest and at the same time beautiful too.

Echinodorus cordifolius "Ovalis"

Echinodorus cordifolius Ovalis
Family: Alismataceae
Scientific Name: Echinodorus cordifolius Ovalis
Common Name:
Distribution: Central and South America
Height: 20-35
Width: 20-30
Light Required: medium-very high
Temperature: 18-26
pH: 5-8
Ease of care: easy
Notes:

Echinodorus cordifolius "Ovalis" is a small, orbiculate "sword" plant whose low, wide growth makes it suitable for small aquariums. A nutritious bottom promotes growth, and if the leaves turn light this indicates a shortage of micro-nutrients. The plant forms stems which (unlike most other "sword" plants) bend down towards the bottom and form their own adventive plants. It is hardy and easy for both beginners and the more experienced

Echinodorus grandiflorus

Echinodorus grandiflorus is perfectly suited for large open aquaria where it willingly grows out of the water. It tolerates the relatively dry air but if the light sources are very warmit helps the plant if we spray the leaves with water occasionally. E. grandiflorus ready blooms and small plants form on the flower stem. These plants can be transplanted into the aquarium when roots have formed. Itprefers a nutrient rich substrate and is well suited for indoor ponds because it tolerates quite low temperatures.In South America the local people use the dried leaves for making tea.

Eichhornia diversifolia

Eichhornia diversifolia is a beautiful but rather difficult plant to grow in the aquarium. The leaves are thin and delicate, up to 10 cml ong and form a rosette. The aquatic form are hardly distinguishable from Eichhornia natans but E.diversifolia is better suited for aquarium use. Forexample, the lower leaves of Eichhornia diversifolialive longer and are less frequently miscoloured and shed.The plant requires very high light to thrive and anutrient rich substrate. Also, the growth of Eichhornia diversifolia benefits from CO2 enrichment of the water. The flower of Eichhornia diversifolia is not as spectacular as the flower of E.crassipes - Water Hyacinth - and flowers develop only from the emergent form.

Echinodorus 'Ozelot' is a hybrid between Echinodorus schlueteri 'Leopard'and Echinodorus barthii created by Barth in Dessauin the former East Germany. It is beautiful withelliptical black spotted red-brownish leaves and a very short petiole. The black spots has, of course, inspired the name 'Ozelot'. In contrast to many other spotted and flecked plants Echinodorus 'Ozelot'maintains the spots regardless of light intensity andother environmental factors. Older leaves, however, tendsto have dark-red spots rather than deep black as in the younger leaves. Echinodorus 'Ozelot' is a sturdyplant and accepts most environmental conditions. If the conditions are sub optimal the plant just grow more slowly and a bit smaller.

Sword Oriental Bare Root Large

TN_Oriental_Sword
Echinodorus 'Oriental'arose from a spontaneous mutation in tissue cultures of EchinodorusX 'Rosé' at the aquarium plants nursery ORIENTAL in Singapore. Echinodorus 'Oriental' segregates from other Echinodorus species by the youngest leaf which is light-red and almost transparent. The colour changes via deep-red with green nerves over dark-green older leaves, beautifully undulating. Grown emergent it reveals its relationship with Echinodorus X 'Rosé'by the characteristic black spots. The plant is slow growing and requires high light intensities and rich substrate. Echinodorus 'Oriental' is a peculiar novelty and it offers the opportunity to create new colours and contrasts in the aquarium. The plant is a protected variety which means it can't be grown comercially without a prior accept from Tropica Aquarium Plants.
