Product Description

In the past, this grass-like plant was better known as „Echinodorus tenellus“. It has been one of the most popular  foreground plants for many decades and can be described as a ‘classic’. In contrast to the purely green growth form ‚parvulum‘, with good lighting the narrow-leaved growth form becomes violet reddish - a nice contrast to bright green cushion forming plants such as Micranthemum tweediei. Strongly cut back, Helanthium tenellum ´Red´ forms a dense „grass carpet“. In aquascaping individual shoots set fine accents in a landscape.

  • Vibrant plants

    First purchase this week and I was so pleased. The plants were so healthy and vibrant. It's got me thinking about replanting my other tank with more plants! Will definately be buying from them again

    Amazing range. Not the normal few plants chucked into a tank. Absolutely incredible. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff.

  • Quick service, fantastic plants

    I have ordered from Aquarium Gardens for the first time after seeing them on social media. Well what can I say except WOW, the plants were a really good price, they arrived on time actually quicker than I expected! They arrived in absolutely fantastic condition as if I had picked them out myself, well packaged. The plants themselves were bigger than what I expected to get so definitely value for money and the root systems were well established, can't wait to see them get bigger in my aquariums. Will definitely buy from this company again.
