XL Melon Sword
The Melon Sword, Echinodorus osiris, is a very beautiful Rosette Plant. The leaves are stemmed in appearance and are slightly rippled along the edges. Mature leaves are green, while new younger leaves have a reddish tint.
Originally from Brazil, the Melon Sword will tolerate hard water and grow in weak lighting. If in strong light, a nutrient-rich substrate and iron-rich fertilizer are required to keep it from being stunted. In this environment, the water temperature should be no lower than 75°F.
