Echinodorus Vesuvius (Helanthium) is a cultured species based on Echinodorus Angustifolia from Oriental Aquarium Nursery. The narrow and twisted green leaves make it an unusual addition to the Echinodorus family. The rosette species grows vigorously with many medium lengths and narrow leaves (10-20 cm tall) and is highly decorative as a solitary plant (rosette 10-15 cm wide). Vesuvius spreads readily with runners. An easy and undemanding plant that requires medium to high light to grow well.
- Sold as a small tissue culture cup.
