This compact, green, low-growing Echinodorus cultivar was developed by the plant breeder Christian Iversen from Aquartica company in Denmark. Under aquarium conditions, it forms a spreading rosette of broadly elliptic, medium green leaves with wavy margin. In stark contrast to the many vigorously growing, large swordplants, it is even suited for the foreground and for nano aquariums as it gets only 10-20 cm. Furthermore it grows quite slowly and contents with only moderate light intensity.
This plant is mostly delivered in its emersed (terrestrial) stage, with more roundish, longer stalked leaves. Planted into the aquarium, it will develop its typical submerged growth habit.
