Common Name: Echinodorus Vesuvius

Helanthium 'Vesuvius', previously known as Echinodorus Vesuvius, features bright green leaves that exhibit a curling growth pattern. When provided with optimal conditions and a clean environment, Helanthium Vesuvius grows at a steady pace and makes for a wonderful background plant choice. It is quite hardy and can be easily propagated by separating plantlets that form via runners. 

Notes:

  • Echinodorus is a very hardy species of aquatic plants. Most Echinodorus require nutrient-dense soil to thrive as they are heavy root feeders.
  • Do not make drastic changes to the aquarium. Unstable parameters will result in melt and rotting of the aquarium plant.
  • Please be sure to remove this plant from its pot. Remove the cotton surrounding the roots and plant into a quality substrate. For instructions on how to properly prep "potted" aquarium plants, click here.
  • CO2 injection and quality aquarium soil will yield better growth.
  • Please research appropriately to ensure your plant thrives.
