Common name: Tissue Culture – Broad-leaf Chain Sword
Latin name: Echinoderus bolivianus
General Info & Placement: Commonly known in the Australian aquatic trade as Broad leaf chain sword, a slightly larger cousin to the ever popular. Echinodorus bolivianus (Helanthium bolivianus) from South America has characteristic light-green leaves 10cm long which form a good contrast to the darker aquarium plants. It is most beautiful when planted in groups, each roset becoming 10cm wide. In good conditions it produces runners which spread over the bottom. Very light leaves are a sign of a shortage of micro-nutrients.
