About Echinodorus parviflorus
Due to their brightness and rough texture, echinodorus parviflorus make excellent mid or foreground focal plants. They can be grown emersed or submersed, and emersed plants may produce small flowers. Remove the older side shoots and leaves to reduce the plant’s size.
In addition to dividing and replanting rhizome divisions, rosette sword plants can be propagated by prying the adventitious plants that form around the mother plant away from the plant’s rosette of leaves, and then replanting them in the substrate. Encourage new root growth by immediately adding nutrients.
