Echinodorus Iguazu 2009 is one of the rarest species of Echinodorus from the Opacus / Portoalegrensis group. Its leaves are one-of-a-kind and show lime green venation that runs through its darker green leaves. The leaves are spherical and the plant grows at a pace that is considered to be sluggish. Because it does not attain a very high height over time, it is an excellent candidate for placement in the front or the middle ground.

- Iguazu Falls are the place of origin. They are located in Brazil and Argentina in South America.
According to the findings of haquatic investigation, this unique plant was first discovered near Iguazu Falls, which is home to the greatest waterfall system in the world. Its precise location straddles the international boundary between the state of Parana in Brazil and the province of Misiones in Argentina. The year 2009, which can be seen at the end of its name, denotes the year in which it was discovered and gathered.
The conditions around it have a significant impact on the pace at which it grows. This plant can thrive in low tech environments, but it will experience much accelerated growth in high tech environments. When we cultivated it in an environment with good illumination, a high concentration of carbon dioxide, and an optimal amount of nutrients, we harvested practically one new leaf every ten days. This plant’s growth rate may be accelerated with the addition of macronutrients and iron. In tanks with low levels of technology, it might take anywhere from one to two months for a new leaf to emerge. Growing a single new leaf typically takes between 10 and 20 days in environments with high illumination and CO2 levels.
It is recommended to employ this plant in an aquascape that calls for a one-of-a-kind feature plant to add elegance, particularly to an aquascape that is straightforward and uncomplicated.
This plant was produced entirely inside using the submersed growing method by haquatic. It is exceedingly clean and devoid of weeds and other outside pests. It is neither tissue culture or emersed developed stock, both of which have the potential to have problems with transitional melting when they are planted in an aquarium. The stock that was developed submerged indoors is in excellent shape and is prepared to be planted in an aquarium without any more ado.
