The Horizontal Swordplant originates from inundated forests and rainforest streambanks in tropical South America. Already cultivated since the 1960s and widespread in the hobby in former times, it is now a rarity that is rather available from few hobbyists than in the trade.

Echinodorus horizontalis is not demanding; medium lighting is sufficient and medium-hard water is well tolerated. The temperature range is 18-28 °C (optimum between 23-26 °C). A nutrient-rich bottom is recommendable for this species that is prone to iron deficiency. It is a rather slow grower, in contrast to many other Echinodorus. Its width of about 35-50 cm should be taken into consideration. Well-growing specimens will develop long inflorescences with few adventitious plantlets. For its emersed culture high air humidity is necessary.

Notes:

  • Echinodorus is a very hardy species of aquatic plants. Most Echinodorus require nutrient-dense soil to thrive as they are heavy root feeders.
  • Echinodorus grow fairly large and are more suitable for larger planted aquariums.
  • Do not make drastic changes to the aquarium. Unstable parameters will result in melt and rotting of the aquarium plant.
  • CO2 injection and quality aquarium soil will yield better growth.
  • Please research appropriately to ensure your plant thrives.
