Description:

Echinodorus osiris 'Pinwheel' is a great new sword plant for the aquarium created by Florida Aquatic Nurseries.  It gets its name from the curved leaves that it displays in the emersed form similar to a pinwheel in appearance.  Narrow leaves and a small stature help this aquarium plant to resemble a Cryptocoryne in growth habit. Echinodorus 'Pinwheel' is an excellent choice for mid-ground settings in a planted aquarium.  If you have been looking for a sword plant that won't outgrow your aquarium, this is your choice.
