This enchinodirus radicans is originated from South-America where it's considered a swamp plant. There are two groups of enchinodorus plants. The real aquatic ones and the swampy ones. The enchinodorus radicans belongs to the alismataceae family. This plant is also partially an epiphyte.
To keep this plant well in an aquarium, is to put it in bright light or half shadow. Temperature rates of 18 till 30°C are great rates for the plant to develop into a strong plant. Becoz' of the height this plant is able to reach, I do prefer to keep these plants in open tanks. It's just great to watch such a plant grow out of the water. When the plant is doing well, it will develop a stem which grows out of the water as well. On this stem on several places flowers will occur. After the flowers have bloomed, new young plants sprouts are developing. They just grow in the air and they are being fed by the stem and by epiphytical influences.
