Common Name: Pygmy Chain Sword 'Green'

 

Previously named Echinodorus tenellus 'Green'.
This small rosulate plant will easily make a 5-10 cm high carpet when the light is good and the bottom layer nutritious. Even at an intense light level this variety remains fresh green unlike the usual, more reddish, Helanthium tenellum. 
An easy and quite undemanding foreground plant.
