Tropica In Vitro 1-2-grow! Helanthium Bolivianum 'Quadricostatus'

Aquarium plant from tissue culture in closed cup.

Echinodorus ‘Quadricostatus’ from South America has characteristic light-green leaves 10-15 cm long which form a good contrast to the darker aquarium plants. It is most beautiful when planted in groups, each roset becoming 15-20 cm wide. In good conditions it produces runners which spread over the bottom. Very light leaves are a sign of a shortage of micro-nutrients. There is some confusion about the name of this plant, and it has been sold as Echinodorus bolivianus var. magdalenensis.

Previously known as Echinodorus 'Quadricostatus'. Helanthium Bolivianum 'Quadricostatus' is considered easy to maintain. It is suitable for nano aquariums.
