Echinodorus cordifolius ''ovalis'' is a small, orbiculate ''sword''
plant whose low, wide growth makes it suitable for small aquariums. A nutritious
bottom promotes growth, and if the leaves turn light this indicates a shortage
of micro-nutrients. The plant forms stems which (unlike most other ''sword''
plants) bend down towards the bottom and form their own adventive plants. It is
hardy and easy for both beginners and the more experienced.
