Helanthium 'Vesuvius' - Tissue Culture Cup

Helanthium Bolivianum 'Vesuvius' previously known as Echinodorus 'Vesuvius' and Echinodorus Angustifolia 'Vesuvius'. It can be easily produced via runners like most 'chain swords'. This 'Twisted Chain Sword' has narrow, needle, pointy, and curly leaves which are very interesting to this to any aquascape design. 

Helanthium ‘Vesuvius' requires medium to high light and does best with a nutrient-rich environment and fertile substrate. Here at Aquarium Plants Factory, we produced this plant in emerged form. The emerged leaves are small, short, compact, and somewhat curly. When grow submerged in fish tanks and aquariums. It developed a long, twisted leaf similar to Vallisneria Asiatica.

    CO2: Recommended
    Growth Rates: Medium
    Difficulty Level: Beginner
    Nutrient Substrate: Required
    Lighting Requirements: Medium-High

    Packed with health plant tissue

    Once untangled, I was able to divide the runners into dozens of healthy plants with roots. Great value and prompt shipping.

    Fantastic tissue culture

    My Vesuvius cup came in in great shape, in a liquid based medium- no agar gel. This cup was stuffed full of plants! Maybe 30 individual plantlets, all really healthy. The packing of live plants from these guys is top notch as well.

    Excellent plant

    Arrived healthy and quick. I wasn’t too sure on how to plant this as I’m new at the hobby. On the first one I tried to separate and spread it out which didn’t go well so on the remaining three I just took them out of the cup and sprinkled the sand over to burry the roots which worked better. Really happy with the products of APF

    Helianthium ‘Vesuvius’

    The cup was packed with plantlets on runners. I separated the largest six and planted them. I gave the rest to a friend. The look very healthy. This is a new plant for me. I am anxious to see how it groes.
