Echinodorus Magdalenensis is one of the 3 variants similar to Echinodorus Quadricostatus, sometimes referred to as Helanthium Quadricostatus. E. Magdalenensis features long foliage with the classic light green hue. Similar to other swords, Echinodorus Magdalenensis is fairly hearty and can adapt to a wide range of aquarium conditions.
This aquatic plant is a great choice for beginners or those who are looking for low maintenance aquatic plants. Care is minimal and as long as a nutrient rich substrate is provided, this aquatic plant will thrive as swords are heavy root feeders. Regular maintenance will also be required as these species are notorious for growing quite large and if left, can potentially shade the lower areas from much-needed light.
With a nutrient rich substrate these plants will tolerate most lighting conditions, but moderate to high lighting is ideal. CO2 injection is not necessary but will help the plant grow faster if desired. Echinodorus Magdalenensis can grow submersed or emersed. Its emersed form may produce lovely white flowers above the waterline.
