Kliener Bar Sword Potted Lg.
The Kleiner Bar Sword is a hybrid between Echinodorus barthii and Echinodorus uruguayensis, which gives the adult leaves their red coloration. If the conditions are not ideal, the plant grows more slowly, a bit smaller, and the deep red coloration of the leaves will turn more rust in color. This species is amphibious and will grow either submersed or partially submersed. Requiring little attention after the initial planting, the Kleiner Bar Sword is a great plant for beginners.
The Kleiner Bar Sword requires moderate to high lighting, approximately 3 watts per gallon provided by full spectrum (5000-7000K) bulbs. The temperature of the water should be between 72°-82°F, with an alkalinity of 3-8 dKH and a neutral pH.
The Kleiner Bar Sword propagates by rhizomes or adventitious shoots that grow off of leaves. A prolific plant under most circumstances, the development of a new leaf once a week is not uncommon.

Although high intensity lighting and CO2 injection will promote vigorous growth (a new leaf, weekly, is not uncommon), the Kleiner Bar Sword will flourish under moderate lighting of at least 2 watts per gallon from full spectrum (5000-7000K) bulbs. The Kleiner Bar Sword requires a nutrient rich substrate and substrate fertilizer will greatly enhance the health and coloration of this species
