Echinodorus horemanii

For many years, several forms of Echinodorus uruguayensis are known in the aquarium hobby under the name Echindorus horemanii. Also our plant, labeled by the aquarium plant nurseries as Echinodorus horemanii "Green", probably belongs to E. uruguayensis. It develops at least 40 cm long, broadly strap-shaped, dark green submerged leaves. It has a moderate growth rate and forms a magnificent rosette of many leaves with time.

As well as all swordplants, Echinodorus 'Horemanii Green' benefits much from a nutrient-rich substrate and good iron supply. Moderate lighting is sufficient. The water chemistry is of subordinate importance. CO2 supply is not essential but promotes its growth. The favourable temperature range is about 20-28 °C. As it is also known from E. uruguayensis, 'Horemanii Green' forms a long, creeping rhizome in the bottom. For propagation, the older leafless parts of the rhizome can be cut into pieces that will develop new leaf rosettes.

Echinodorus 'Horemanii Green' is a time-tested sword plant that looks best as solitary plant or small group in the midground to background of larger tanks. Its long, narrow foliage emphasises the vertical line and contrasts well with light green and red plants.
