Description

Common Name: Echinodorus Devil Eye, Amazon Sword

Echinodorus Devils Eye is an interesting, unique sword variation. This aquatic plant features a dark green tone with a thick central vein running down the center of its leaves. This Echinodorus can be considered a medium-sized species and typically falls within the 6-12" range, but will vary depending on the condition in which the plant is grown. Amazon sword plants are heavy root feeders and should be planted in nutritious aquarium substrate to support healthy growth. 

Root tabs may be added if the plant needs an additional nutrient boost or when it grows to larger sizes. Sword plants are generally beginner-friendly and will adapt to a wide range of growing conditions. It is recommended to prune any damaged or imperfect leaves to support growth and to encourage the plant to produce new leaves. Sword plants propagate on their own with time and will eventually divide at the base to be separated and replanted. 

Notes:

  • Echinodorus is a 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.
  • Do not make drastic changes to the aquarium. Unstable parameters will result in melt and rotting of the aquarium plant.
