Echinodorus bleheri ‘Amazon Compacta Sword’

Echinodorus bleheri (often called “Amazon sword”) is similar to Echinodorus amazonicus, except it has broader, straighter leaves a more compact root system and does not grow as large as Echinodorus amazonicus. Echinodorus bleheri compacta is an excellent plant for beginners, as it’s easy to grow and maintain. Its large, bright green leaves provide a great focal point, and the plant’s large size makes it ideal for background placement, although it’s also attractive in a midground setting.
