Description:

Echinodorus quadricostatus is a great choice for foreground areas of the aquarium. Upright lance shaped leaved create a carpet in the planted areas.  The leaves are much broader than that of its cousin Echinodorus tenellus and the overall plant will be taller.  Echinodorus quadricostatus spread by runners that form plantlets.  If these plantlets are floating just replant them in the desired location of the aquarium.
