Short Description

These make a great specimen plant but they do require a lot of space in the aquarium. They require nutrients in the substrate and will benefit from the addition of CO2 to the aquarium. Sometimes these can be difficult to obtain from suppliers but they can usually be ordered if you are prepared to wait. They have long slender leaves; the leaf width may vary from plant to plant.
