Aquatic Tissue Culture Plants
Tissue culture plants are propagated in sterile packages where they grow in non-toxic, germ- and pest-free environments. Complete Aquatic Systems owns and operates our own tissue culture lab thus giving us total control over the varieties and quantities produced. Another benefit to having our own lab is that we don't have any middlemen to deal with.
Echinodorus tеnеlluѕ ‘Micro Sword’
Echinodorus Tenellus Grass
Similar to Eleocharis раrvulа (hairgrass), Echinodorus tеnеlluѕ creates a carpeting effect on the bottom on the tank, but with large, feather-like leaves that provide a rugged, untamed appearance. Echinodorus tenellus grass spreads runners throughout the tank bottom, creating a lawn-like aesthetic that is highly appealing and unique.

About Echinodorus Tеnеlluѕ
One of the most important Echinodorus tenellus care factors is the substrate, which should be enriched with nutrients. Letting other plants overshadow Echinodorus tenellus grass may restrict its growth. For more compact growth, provide boundaries such as pots or rocks. The plant’s carpeting effect can be enhanced with CO2 and high light. Prune any leaves that develop algae.
Echinodorus tenellus grass naturally sends runners throughout the substrate, which develop into plantlets. To propagate the plant, wait until the roots are fully established, separate the plantlets from the mother plant, and replant them 2 cm apart.
