4.99 6.99 $4.99 - $6.99
Echinodorus Martii also known as Ruffled Amazon Sword or Echinodorus Major. Ruffled Amazon Sword is a beautiful sword plant that provides a very distinctive contrast to other members of the genus and is ideal as a background or corner plant in larger aquaria. The leaves, slightly lighter green that the common Amazon sword, arise from a compact rhizome up to 50cm/20in in length; the petioles are short, and the blade has wavy edges and one or two pairs of lighter-green veins that end above the base of the blade. The leaves generally grow more directly vertical than most of the other species in this genus, and thus take up less horizontal space.
