Echnidorus Iguazu 2009 is a rare Echinodorus from the Opacus / Portoalegrensis group that has unique leaves that features bright lime green venation running through its deeper green leaves. It has a rounded leaf shape and relatively slow growth rate. As it does not grow relatively tall, it is very suitable to be positioned in the foreground or midground region.
Based on our research, this rare plant originates from Iguazu Falls, the largest waterfall system in the world. It is located at the border of the Argentine province of Misiones and the Brazilian state of Parana. The year at the back of its name, 2009, represents the year it was discovered and collected.
Under ideal growing conditions, it can grow one new leaf every 10 days. Macronutrients and iron helps in increasing this plant's growth rate.
This plant is best used in an aquascape that requires a unique feature plant to add sophistication, especially to an ordinary and simple aquascape.
This plant grown by Aquarzon is 100% submersed grown indoor and is very clean, free from weeds and outdoor pests. It is not tissue culture or emersed grown stock which can suffer transitional melting issues when planted in an aquarium. Our indoor submersed grown stock is in very healthy condition and ready to be planted straight in an aquarium.
