Helanthium Bolivianum 'Vesuvius' previously known as Echinodorus 'Vesuvius' and Echinodorus Angustifolia 'Vesuvius'. It can be easily produced via runners like most 'chain swords'. This 'Twisted Chain Sword' has narrow, needle, pointy, and curly leaves which are very interesting to this to any aquascape design. 


Helanthium ‘Vesuvius' requires medium to high light and does best with a nutrient-rich environment and fertile substrate. Here at Aquarium Plants Factory, we produced this plant in emerged form. The emerged leaves are small, short, compact, and somewhat curly. When grow submerged in fish tanks and aquariums. It developed a long, twisted leaf similar to Vallisneria Asiatica.
