The easy-to-care-for stiff-leaved sword plant Echinodorus palaefolius is also known as Echinodorus palifolius. It comes from South America and likes soft to hard water. The 20 to 40cm high rosette plant really comes into its own in the middle distance to the background of an aquarium.

Echinodorus palaefolius, the stiff-leaved sword plant, has strikingly stiff, quite upright growing petioles on which the freshly green, relatively large leaves sit. As a root setter, Echinodorus palaefolius needs a very nutrient-rich substrate, which should be a good 10cm layer thick so that the roots find enough space to grow well.

This beautiful large aquarium plant is a case for the background in the aquarium. It becomes quite expansive and needs a bit of space. It is particularly beautiful in open aquariums, where the inflorescences can then grow above the surface of the water.

The daughter plants through which Echinodorus palaefolius reproduces are located on these same inflorescences. You can simply remove and use these offspring if you want to multiply Echinodorus palaefolius in a targeted manner.

The stiff-leaved sword plant is quite easy to care for and doesn't take a lot of work. It needs a proper supply of nutrients through the roots, but not necessarily additional CO2 fertilisation. Even under moderate light, it grows very quickly and well. You can care for Echinodorus palaefolius in soft to hard water without any problems.

Our expert Oliver Knott recommends:
The stiff-leaved Echinodorus is a beautiful solitaire for large aquariums and especially for South American tanks. It becomes quite strong and needs a lot of space so that it can develop its full beauty.
