Ekhinodorus apart: content and reproduction

Echinodorus Apart-hybrid plant, obtained in 1994 in G. Bart’s nursery in Dessau by crossing Echi-nodorus uruguayensis (synonymous with E.horemani “Rot”) x E.portoalegrensis. Or E.por-toalegrensis “Apart” inherited the shape of the bush, and from E. uruguayensis – the red color of juvenile inner leaves, so the adult bush “Apart” in the aquarium looks like a beautiful bouquet.

Moreover, unlike other echinodoruses, the “Apart” has very tough, thick leaves (even thicker than those of large anu-bias), which makes it possible to use it for decorative purposes in aquariums with large tsichlovy fishes.

According to the conditions of this echinodorus is unpretentious: it can grow in water at a temperature of 15-26 C, almost any hardness of water and pH = 6.8-7.8. Preferably a small flow and water changes, at least once a week.

And protect him from filamentous and brush algae, which he does not like very much.

This echinodorus reproduces practically only by separating the children from the horizontal rhizome, which grows only by the year. Separating the rhizome from the mother bush, leave it to float on the surface, small seedlings will appear from the sleeping buds, but one subtlety is that only one, the largest, can be separated.

It can be planted on a sufficiently deep lighted place in the aquarium, and to the fore, because of its low growth rate, it will delight you for a long time with its dark, wax-like leaves. After you have torn off the baby, the next one will begin to grow, and so on, until the rhizome is completely depleted.

Each subsequent baby is less than the previous one. Thus, I removed 8 bushes from the rhizome of Echinodorus Apart.

Being planted in the ground, they grow much faster than Echinodorus portoallegrensis, I would even say that an order of magnitude.

Alexander Ivankov, a reputable Moscow aquarist with great experience, notes that this Ekhinodorus flower shooter gives, but very rarely and the number of plants in whorls is small.
