Department flowering or angiosperms MAGNOLIOPHYTA, or ANGIOSPERMAE
Family: Chastuhovye Alismataceae

grows in the southern part of North America to Y. America, as well as the Greater Antilles.
Plant with a short stem and a rosette of leaves, some species have a rhizome.
Planted in soil nutrient.

Lighting : 0,5 W/l.

Water : 22-25 ° C, dH 5-15 °, pH 6,5-7,5.

Propagated depending on the type of the following ways:

  • Types forming a flower arrow with inflorescence and flowers, pollinating a soft brush. Ripe seeds will change from green to brown. They are separated and some hobbyists dried for 1-2 weeks, after which hold 1.5-2 hours in a vessel with soft water at 25 ° C and its strong circulation to improve germination. Then the seeds are planted in the sand container with low water temperature of 25-28 ° C, as the germination of the water level is gradually increased.
  • Subsidiaries plants formed on the flower-wise after the formation of roots and 5-7 leaves separated and planted in the ground. You can tilt the arrow flower plant with a child to the ground and pressed the stone that it is rooted.
  • Subsidiaries plants formed from adventitious buds on the rhizome, after the formation of roots and 5-7 leaves can be cut and put into the ground.
  • V. Yudakov A-m 3/94 most species reproduce from the age of 1-1.5 years in the following manner. He writes: "As used tool -medical lancet or a small knife with a thin blade -should be well sharpened ... mother bush removed from the aquarium and spread their roots, pre-clearing them from the ground ... right incision is easier to do by the roots, turning bush leaves down. Cut must be so and separated, and the remaining part of the rhizome was a few leaves and roots ... After that plants remove old and weak hold about cut leaves and put it on the old place ".
  • When transplanting the old plants with long rhizome rhizome can be cut into pieces and pressed to the ground. Over time from dormant buds formed daughter plants.
  • layering formed by creeping shoots, after the formation of the root system and a few leaves can be separated and planted in the ground. If not separated, then eventually they form a lawn.

Motherland -the central regions of South America.

This Echinodorus significantly different from the other members of the genus by its appearance. Long, narrow bright green leaves at first glance resemble eel -widespread aquatic plant. However, the structure and shape of the leaves and the whole structure of the plant quite peculiar. Bush reaches its height 40-45 cm is best located at the side door Echinodorus closer to the background of the aquarium. The plant is relatively rare in ac-varumistov. It is relatively unpretentious and grows in the aquarium evenly throughout the year.

Echinodorus tolerate fluctuations in water temperature in a fairly wide range. Plant satisfactorily feels as tropical and warm temperate in the aquarium at a temperature from 20 to 28 ° C. Prefers water of medium hardness, but can grow in soft water. Like most ehinodorusov, steady growth is observed only in neutral or slightly alkaline water. Acidic environment inhibits the growth of plants. Desirable substitute water regularly, at least 2-3 times a month.

Lighting Echinodorus preferably strong enough. With a lack of light leaf color is deteriorating: young leaves lose a reddish-brown color, the old become a faded green. Plant like natural lighting, diffused sunlight acts on it most beneficial. For artificial lighting suitable incandescent and fluorescent lamp type LB. Power latter should not be less than 0.4 watts per 1 liter volume, and incandescent lamps -1.2 W or more. Depending on the brightness of day length can vary from 8 to 14 hours.

In the old aquarium plants for food is enough natural silting soil. The substrate is preferably used sand and pebbles, as the root system Echinodorus quite gentle. Soil layer of 3-4 cm will ensure the proper development of the root system. Thicker layer of soil should be cleaned more thoroughly to prevent souring excess organics.

Plant useful mineral supplements, especially in a period of rapid growth and reproduction. First we need to pay attention to micronutrients. To prevent nitrogen starvation should be applied twice a week for 5-10 urea granules per 100 liters of aquarium water, rich in plants and fish are not overcrowded.

In the aquarium conditions Echinodorus angustifolia propagated vegetatively. The plant forms a set of whiskers, creeping along the ground. On each of them at a distance of 5-10 inches apart form daughter plants. Separating kids without damaging mustache fails, so mustache divided into parts, each of which can be left in one well-formed plant with 5-6 leaves. The final part of the radius at which there were three or four very small plants should not divide. This scourge should be pressed to the ground with stones or glass rods.

Echinodorus seeds of this species can be in damp greenhouse, where under favorable conditions it color. Pollinate flowers with a soft brush. Meaning seed breeding in artificial conditions is small, as vegetatively propagated plants is much easier, and the result is not worse.

As terrestrial plant Echinodorus angustifolia grow hard. Special requirements to the nature of the soil plant does not show. Lighting should be bright, diffused air temperature 24-28 ° C.
