The four-ribbed echinodorus (Burhead, Amazon Sword Plant) is common in Brazil. Plant height 5-10 cm.
The thickened rhizome is firmly held in the ground. The terrestrial form of the plant, the height of which is about 10 cm, has petiole leaves, dark green, oval, narrowed at the base and apex, 4 cm long and 10 mm wide. The water temperature for the four-ribbed echinodorus is 22-25 ° C, the hardness dH is 8-15 °, the acidity is pH 5.0-7.0. With rare water changes, it stops growing completely. With a lack of nutrients, the color of plant leaves fades.
In a plant grown in water, the leaves are thin, green, scarious with short petioles, oval, narrowed at the base and apex, with weakly pronounced veins, 15 cm long and 2 cm wide. Production is carried out using creeping shoots, on which leaf buds appear daughter plants. Echinodorus can also be grown in greenhouses.
