Echinodorus Bleheri from South America is undemanding and beautiful, and becomes 20-50cm tall. A nutritious bottom
promotes growth, but the plant needs pruning to prevent it depriving plants underneath of light. It does well even in
poorly illuminated aquariums, as it grows towards the light. It is a hardy and easy solitary plant for both beginners and the
more experienced with quite large aquariums. It is also known as paniculatus.
