Ekhinodorus quadruple has light green foliage, well contrasted with darker aquarium plants. It grows easily, quickly releasing daughter plants on creeping shoots and forming dense thickets. Most common in South American countries, especially in Brazil.

It is a widespread plant for growing in aquariums, however, it is possible to grow land variations of this species in the paludarium.

Echinodorus four-rib is not picky about the conditions of detention, prefers weakly alkaline or neutral water, hardness of 8-15 °. In very soft water, without additional feeding, the plant often manifests iron deficiency.

Water temperature is 22–26 ° C. Desirable regular water changes.

Lighting prefers bright, but the plant feels good in moderately lit aquariums, in shaded areas of the aquarium. In low light Echinodorus grows much higher than in bright light.

The duration of daylight hours is 10–12 hours.

As the soil is best to use small pebbles or large river sand. In a silted, nutrient-rich substrate of several bushes in a matter of weeks a beautiful green carpet is formed, formed by numerous root layers.

If you regularly trim the emerging side shoots, you can get a large shrub with lots of leaves.

Echinodorus responds well to basal feeding and liquid complex fertilizers. Suitable for planting in places of feeding fish, as rotting food remains do not affect the appearance of the plant.

Best of all, this species will look on the front and middle planes, as a “carpet” or separate formations, contrasting with larger plants.

A plant submerged in water propagates exclusively by cutting, in good conditions throwing out creeping shoots on which daughter plants develop.
