Echinodorus Paul Kloecker
by Robert Paul Hudson
This is yet another German hybrid Sword plant that is now hitting the USA through Florida Aquatic Nurseries. It has similar markings as the Ozelot sword, however the leaves are more robust and compact making them less overpowering in stature and more suitable for smaller aquariums than other similar sword plants. Red coloring is more intense in younger leaves while more mature leaves have a red and brown flecked pattern.
