About Eсhіnоdоruѕ Amаzоnісuѕ
Like most other Eсhіnоdоruѕ ѕресіеѕ, Amazon sword grows quite large, making it an excellent choice for a focal plant, especially in large tanks. It can also be grown in groups to create a unique background. It does not grow well in hard water but thrives in a bed of medium fine gravel that is supplemented with iron-rich fertilizer. The plant prefers warm water and medium to bright light.
Eсhіnоdоruѕ amаzоnісuѕ produces runners that form tiny plantlets. Wait until the plant’s roots are fully developed, then remove the plantlets below the crown, leaving the upper portion of the runner intact, so it can create more plantlets. Replant the plantlets, leaving a small portion of the crown and roots exposed.
