About This Product

The narrow leaf chain sword (Echinodorus tenellus) features deep green, narrow leaves that are slightly curved. undemanding and beautiful. A nutritious bottom promotes growth, but the plant needs pruning to prevent it depriving plants underneath of light. 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.
