Natural Habitats: In the wild it grows in sticky mud along rivers.  
Care: It prefers a sandy soil and sub-tropical temperatures (though it will grow in warmer waters). Medium to high light. It forms pseudo-stolons which root easily. Grows well submerse and propagates easily. In emerse conditions it seems to be dwarfed and may not grow so well  
Comment: Echinodorus argentinensis needs a deep rich substrate and good light. It will withstand sub-tropical - tropical temperatures. It may be too big for the average aquarium; the leaves soon growing out of the water. Supplement these with iron and CO2 if possible. Seems to prefer soft to hard water.
