Echinodorus bleheri 'compacta' has all the attributes of a regular amazon sword, plus the added benefit of being smaller in size. The dwarf amazon sword plant was created at Florida Aquatic Nurseries by constantly selecting smaller, vigorous plants until they found the ideal candidate. Echinodorus bleheri 'compacta' can be used in the foreground areas of an aquarium or midground areas of the aquarium. Echinodorus bleheri 'compacta' looks exactly like an amazon sword and thrives in all the same conditions. High leaf counts and a size of 6 inches fully mature makes Echinodorus bleheri 'compacta' a great choice for smaller aquariums. Dwarf Amazon Sword Plants are a great choice for beginners.
