Echinodorus Vesuvius "Spiral Sword"
NOTE: The photos labeled "AS OF 3.6.23" is currently what the plant looks like that we are selling.
This is a rad little plant. "Echinodorus" = Sword, Sword = Root Feeder.
Vesuvius= Volcano in Italy....no clue how it got the name!
However this plant has a spiral shaped leaf coming out of the center of it. We have photos showing how we have ALREADY STARTED THIS FOR YOU.
This is one of the reward for growing plants UNDER WATER... You get to see how it will change. The photos show how this plant is losing its above water growth yellowing leaves and focusing its energy on sending up leaves that will live under water...spiraling under water in your aquarium.
This is more of a mid-ground plant. I have only seen them get 4 to 5 inches tall.
YOU WANT GOOD SUBSTRATE TO FEED THIS PLANT- Plain grave and root tabs won't cut it.
On a scale of 1-10 this plant is a 5.
They don't last- grab one.
Highly recommend this company. Great plants and carefully packaged!
I ordered 3 of these. They arrived quickly and packaged well. They are in great shape, looking forward to seeing them becoming a part of my tank.
Cooler than 1980's acid-washed jeans, only this won't go out of style. Loving this plant!
I thought I would give this plant a try. Every tank I have has plants, even the saltwater tank has plants, so I figured I'd give this gorgeous curly leafed Vesuvius a chance. I've got it planted in dirt and can't wait to see how it adjusts to its new home! Plant arrived looking amazing! I bought the style that was not potted so it wouldn't need to adjust to under water conditions. Love buying plants from Dustin!
