Echinodorus Osiris, also known as Melon Sword, E. Osiris Rubra or E. Aureobrunata, originates from Brazil. This sword plant produces leaves with slightly ruffled edges and clearly visible veins. It is a truly interesting plant that is easy to care for and ideal as a feature plant in your aquarium. The plant will appreciate iron supplementation and good lighting.
I ordered the set of 2 small melon swords but I think I got just 1 medium instead as it's quite tall (which is fine because my tank is very tall) Pretty plant and I enjoy looking at it
I ordered 2 medium and each one is 8-10" tall with 6-8 big leaves and a big root ball. Really healthy looking. I'm so pleased!
My melon sword is striking! The stems and leaves grow at aesthetic angles, and I appreciate the strong root system. I root tabbed this thing heavily, and since it's been planted roughly a week ago, I've seen two new leaves! No melt yet!
