Echinodorus Aflame Tissue Culture
Common Name: Aflame Sword
The Aflame sword is a highly sought after Echinodorus that's considered quite rare in the hobby. The leaves of this unique plant can range from green to red depending on the growing conditions and the addition of iron can help in bringing out the robust coloration. Unlike most swords, Aflame grows a little slower and stays relatively smaller when compared to more common aquatic swords.
- Echinodorus is a very hardy species of aquatic plants. Most Echinodorus require nutrient-dense soil to thrive as they are heavy root feeders.
- Echinodorus grow fairly large and are more suitable for larger planted aquariums.
- Tissue culture plants are grown in vitro from a state of the art laboratory specialized in propagating aquatic plants. They provide the best option for those who want to ensure that absolutely zero unwanted pests are introduced into the aquarium.
- Remove tissue culture gel before planting. Simply wash the gel away or soak the plant in water and squeeze the gel off with your fingers.
- Do not make drastic changes to the aquarium. Unstable parameters will result in melt and rotting of the aquarium plant.
