This ‘Mellon Sword’ can tolerate slightly acidic to neutral water. Herbivorous and large fish generally do not like it.

This plant will need nutrient-rich substrate and iron-rich fertilizer. If the leaves become pale and translucent, iron deficiency may be responsible.

It does well under medium to high lights. For each gallon: 2-4 watts full spectrum of 5000-7000K should suffice.

2'-3' tall depending on growing conditions.
Botanical Name:
Echinodorus osiris

This table shows the estimated shipping weeks for destinations to USA states. These dates can change depending on weather and how strong the plants are at that time. For example, a wet spring will have many clouds leading to less sunshine. Thus, the plants may need a bit longer to grow strong enough for transplanting and transit. With the planet heating up, a warm spring may help the plants grow strong enough to ship before the dates in this table. This applies to pick-ups a well as shipping.
