Fertilization for aquatic plants usually is mixed to the soil in which they are planted; this is why mature manure, or granular fertilizer, can be used. On the market there are specific fertilizers for sheets of water to be mixed to the water or in pills to be inserted in the soil.

Irrigation EchinodorusTenere bagnato
We should water regularly, wetting the substratum deep down. Letís intervene every 0-1 weeks . Normally during this period these plants need 1-2 buckets of water . Water plants can also bear stagnant water, remaining with the roots completely immersed; they survive even in very humid locations, near small lakes or small ponds.

Temperatures EchinodorusPosizione mezza ombra
During the winter they can be set in a water garden, or it is possible to place our plants in large containers, locating them in a fresh and bright place. For a balanced development of the the Echinodorus , let's choose a partially shaded place, where it can enjoy direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day.The Echinodorus can't tolerate freezings, therefore it is best to grow it in a cold green house or in an apartment; during late Spring we can place them outside, when all risks of freezings are unprobable.

Adversity Echinodorus
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.

Substrate Echinodorus
Aquatic plants should be located near aquatic gardens, in a soil which stays humid for long.
