Echinodorus Oriental, also known as Oriental Sword, is a cultivated hybrid that under good conditions produces unusually, delicate- and transparent-like leaves that may also exhibit pinkish color, contrasting nicely with other plants in the aquarium. This sword will appreciate good lighting and fertilization. It grows to approximately 8-10 inches and, when its needs are met, it will often produce flowers on runners from which daughter plants will develop that then can be cut and replanted in the aquarium.
