Eichhornia diversifolia is a decorative stem plant from the water hyacinth or Pontederiaceae family. The submerged shoots form leaves around 10 cm long on the stems. Eichhornia diversifolia grows relatively quickly and should therefore be trimmed regularly. If the stems reach the water surface, less decorative simple floating leaves form. A good supply of nutrients and CO2 is absolutely essential for this beauty from South America. Slightly acidic to neutral water also promotes healthy, strong growth. Eichhornia diversifolia is one of the most magnificent stem plants and it should therefore be positioned in the middle or background of an underwater landscape as a specimen plant.
