VIEW POLICY

Echinodorus ascherianus, commonly known as "Ascher's sword," is a species of aquatic plant belonging to the family Alismataceae. It is native to South America and is popular among aquarium enthusiasts due to its attractive appearance and ease of care.

This species is characterized by its rosette growth habit, with long and slender leaves that can reach a height of up to 20-40 centimeters (8-16 inches). The leaves are typically green in color, but variations with reddish or brown tones are also found in some forms.

Echinodorus ascherianus is considered a versatile plant, suitable for both aquariums and paludariums. It prefers moderate to high lighting conditions, and the addition of carbon dioxide (CO2) supplementation can promote its growth and overall health. The plant requires a nutrient-rich substrate and benefits from regular fertilization to thrive.

In terms of care, it is important to provide adequate space for this plant to grow, as it can spread horizontally through runners. Regular pruning of older leaves and runners is recommended to maintain its appearance and prevent overcrowding. Additionally, Echinodorus ascherianus appreciates regular water changes to maintain good water quality.

With its beautiful foliage and relatively undemanding care requirements, Echinodorus ascherianus can make a lovely addition to aquariums, adding a touch of greenery and natural aesthetics to the underwater environment.
