Helanthium tenellum 'Green'

 

Layouts containing this plant

Previously named Echinodorus tenellus 'Green'.

This small rosulate plant will easily make a 5-10 cm high carpet when the light is good and the bottom layer nutritious. Even at an intense lightlevel this variety remains fresh green unlike the usual, more reddish, Echinodorus tenellus.

An easy and quite undemanding foreground plant.
