Echinodorus Kleiner Prinz is a unique new sword plant for the aquarium. The name Kleiner Prinz means 'small prince' in German and this is truly a small prince of an aquarium plant. Kleiner Prinz obtains a height of only about 12 inches at maturity it is truly one of the smallest of all the swords making for an excellent aquarium plant. Keliner Prinz forms a compact rosette and holds many leaves for its size. The leaves are medium width and are a deep reddish maroon color. Echinodorus Kleiner Prinz flowers underwater and plantlets form on the inflorescence underwater. In the immersed form the aquatic plant is small and nondescript. The leaves are light green and rarely does the plant get more than 8 to 10 inches tall. Kleiner Prinz does flower reasonably well in the immersed form but it is not considered prolific. This aquarium plant was hybridized by Thomas Kaliebe of Germany.
