Helanthium Vesuvius, an enchanting freshwater plant hailing from South America, formerly known as Echinodorus Vesuvius or Twisted Chain Sword. This unique aquatic gem belongs to the Alismataceae family and is prized for its captivating appearance, featuring elegantly elongated leaves with a charming spiral pattern.
Growing up to 30 cm tall, Helanthium Vesuvius forms a lush rosette that resembles a graceful tuft of grass. Its stunning green leaves are gracefully twisted and curled, creating a distinctive and visually dramatic look.
Caring for Helanthium Vesuvius is a rewarding experience, as it adapts well to various lighting conditions. It thrives with a substrate rich in nutrients, and occasional doses of liquid fertilizers encourage its growth. While injecting CO2 can enhance its development, it's not necessary.

All arrived healthy and green, had no problem getting these going once planted in my tank. Reasonable price too!
Vesuvius tissue culture, many , many plants, very healthy
Once untangled, I was able to divide the runners into dozens of healthy plants with roots. Great value and prompt shipping.
My Vesuvius cup came in in great shape, in a liquid based medium- no agar gel. This cup was stuffed full of plants! Maybe 30 individual plantlets, all really healthy. The packing of live plants from these guys is top notch as well.
Arrived healthy and quick. I wasn’t too sure on how to plant this as I’m new at the hobby. On the first one I tried to separate and spread it out which didn’t go well so on the remaining three I just took them out of the cup and sprinkled the sand over to burry the roots which worked better. Really happy with the products of APF
The cup was packed with plantlets on runners. I separated the largest six and planted them. I gave the rest to a friend. The look very healthy. This is a new plant for me. I am anxious to see how it groes.
