Echinodorus bleheri from South America is undemanding and beautiful, and becomes 20-50 cm tall. A nutritious bottom promotes growth, but the plant needs pruning to prevent it depriving plants underneath of light. Echinodorus bleheri does well even in poorly illuminated aquariums, as it grows towards the light. It is a hardy and easy solitary plant for both beginners and the more experienced with quite large aquariums.
Echinodorus, the Amazon sword plant or burhead, is a genus of plants in the family Alismataceae and distributed in the Western Hemisphere from the central United States to Argentina. Its scientific name is derived from Ancient Greek echius – rough husk, and doros – leathern bottle, alluding to ovaries, which in some species are armed with persistent styles, forming prickly head of fruit. Some of the species are commonly cultivated in artificial aquatic habitats.
The leaves of emersed growth are rounder than those of submerged growth and will eventually die when the plant is put into your aquarium. To avoid having to remove leaves down the road, consider removing all but a handful of the oldest leaves before planting.

Willing To Help!
100% satisfied with the service I received. I am new to the hobby and Leo took the time to answer any questions I had and even suggested a few products to help my plants thrive in their new home without harming any live stock.
Great Local Business
I have been in contact with the store since January in order to get the right selection of plants. Even with the pandemic and lack of supplies they were able to get my full selection which was pretty big. The quality of Tropica plants are impeccable. They answered all my questions and help me out with many tips regarding how to best plant my selection. If you wish to support a local business and get the best selection of plants 100% recommend using Aquascaperoom Canada.
Great service. On time Toronto pick-up. Received a follow-up email from Leo the next day asking about my satisfaction with their products and service. That doesn't happen everyday and it was very much appreciated. I will buy from Aquascaperoom again soon.
Best Customer Service!
Such an amazing customer service. I ordered a few plants and some didnt look too good. I contacted them and they responded quickly. They took time to help me and walked me through what to do with the plants. They are very kind and understanding. I will be purchasing more from them in the future.
Only the best!
I’ve been using live plants in my aquariums for a little over two years. I get a lot of them from the aquascaperoom website. I have never had any problems, all the plants arrive very healthy and I bought their fertilizer tablets and liquid fertilizer and both are amazing for helping keep my plants healthy. They got so much variety on the website and the shipping is amazing. I can’t recommend them enough, you won’t be sorry you bought plants from this amazing business.

I place a very rushed order and contacted them to see if i can pickup in person .. they worked with me 100% and i was able to meet and pickup .. that shows that they really care about customers and their needs .. i was so happy and grateful i will for sure be ordering from them again in the future
My plant order came fast and was in excellent condition. They're all thriving and were obviously well cared for before shipping. Great service and I'll be ordering again.
Express Shipping with DOA!
The customer service here was absolutely above and beyond! I had 2 items arrive in not so good health but that probably happened during shipping and not because of the company, regardless I was refunded the 110% store credit for the items. Everything was well packed upon my next order and even came with a 72hr heat pack for the plants! I will do a lot more shopping here and will recommend it to anyone! Thank you Aquascaperoom!
