Echinodorus macrophyllus is one of the large, orbiculate ''sword''
plants which grow up out of even large aquariums in good growing conditions. If
light is available less than 11 hours a day it is easier to keep down inside the
aquarium. It is suitable for open aquariums, where it forms decorative
heart-shaped leaves above the water surface. It is a good idea to spray the
plant to prevent it drying out. It used to be sold as Echinodorus
