Echinodorus Cordifolius, also known as Radican Sword or E. Radicans, originates from North America. The leaves of Radican Sword are very attractive and are almost circular in shape, making it truly noticeable in your tank — even in a fully planted aquarium. Radican Marble sword is especially a striking plant with its white marbling on its leaves. This plant is undemanding and easy to keep. If you want to keep this plant short and more compacted, remove large and older leaves. This plant will appreciate good lighting, some fertilization, including iron supplementation.
The plant I received didn't have as much marbling as the photo, hoping it will marble up under our lights as it grows. This is a very delicate plant, had to remove half the leaves because the stalk got broken in transport or while unboxing (even being very careful I still broke one). It's doing really well in my tank so far (no melting).
