Helanthium Bolivianum 'Quadricostatus', also known as Mini Sword, is a green fore-ground plant that has short, spade-like small leaves and is native to Central and North America. Surprisingly hardy and easy to keep this plant is great for beginners. Does not require CO2 injection or very high amounts of lighting (although it benefits from it). Under the right lighting conditions and when provided with some fertilizers, this plant will spread very quickly and form a lush and beautiful carpet in the front of your aquarium.
Provides great shelter for shrimp and small bottom feeders.
