Echinodorus bolivianus ( Helanthium bolivianum )
Helanthium ‘bolivianum’ from South America has characteristic light-green leaves 10cm long which form a good contrast to the darker aquarium plants.
It is most beautiful when planted in groups, each roset becoming 10cm wide. In good conditions it produces runners which spread over the bottom. Very light leaves are a sign of a shortage of micro-nutrients.
