Plant Description:

Dwarf Chain Sword 'Echinodorus / Helanthium tenellus' is a small, green, grass- like plant found in bogs throughout North, Central, and South America 

In the aquarium, Echinodorus tenellus has recently been reclassified as Helanthium tenellum and is sometimes referred to as a pygmy or dwarf chain sword. These plants do best when planted directly into the substrate and can be easily propagated by new plantlets and lateral runners.

Tenellus is adored because of its grass-like appearance and carpeting growth pattern. Under high intensity light and nutrients, they will grow more compact and create a lush carpet of plants in the foreground. This plant is easy to care for and requires medium to high light and moderate fertilization and CO2 supplementation. Dwarf chain sword is ideal for small or nano-aquariums.

This plant is a medium to fast grower and will require frequent trimming and pruning to keep it in its best shape.
