Echinodorus Yellow Sun is a manmade hybrid Amazon Sword Plant species. Considered to be a large species, Echinodorus Yellow Sun is a suitable sword plant choice for larger planted aquariums. Newer leaves are a lime green in color with older leaves displaying vibrant yellow hues with dispersed brown specks and light red veins throughout. Compared to the more common Amazon Sword, Yellow Sun produces rounder and much broader leaves.

Echinodorus Yellow Sun is easy to grow both submerged and emerged with its emerged form displaying harder, coarse-textured green leaves. Echinodorus easy care makes it a great choice for beginner hobbyists and typically works great in Wabi Kusa setups as well. Like all aquatic sword species, Echinodorus Red Wild Grass is easy to keep, fairly hardy and needs a minimum of a nutrient-rich aquarium substrate as these species of aquatic plant are heavy root feeders. Aside from this, Echinodorus species are fairly tolerable of varying water parameters and lighting conditions. Propagation is simple. Separate and replant.
