Mellon Swords Aquatic Plants
NOTE: The color shown on your screen may not exactly match the actual plant. The color depends on growing conditions, too.

Botanical Name: Echinodorus osiris

Item #: 10-5078
Free from Pesticides and Herbicides!
No pesticides and no herbicides are used in our greenhouses and ponds.

The quick-growing Mellon Sword is one of the most beautiful species of the genus. It can be grown in a bright or slightly shady area. The white flowers bloom above the water and can reach 2-3 feet high for that wonder centerpiece in your aquarium.

This Mellon Sword can tolerate slightly acidic to neutral water. Herbivorous and large fish generally do not like it.

This plant will need nutrient-rich substrate and iron-rich fertilizer. If the leaves become pale and translucent, iron deficiency may be responsible. It does well under medium to high lights (for each gallon: 2-4 watts full spectrum of 5000-7000K).

Each: $12.99
