Hi, Nice to meet you everyone! I'm Echinodorus collector from Japan.
I would like to introduce several species of echinodorus.
E. Guianensis is from Rataj farm, I think it's very beautiful one,
and it's similar to E. Horemanii green.
Thanks.

Hello Teshirogi, welcome in the forum!
The diverse plants called E. horemanii belong to the highly variable E. uruguayensis group, and there are no good characters to distinguish E. horemanii from the many other forms of E. uruguayensis. And the plant in Your photo apparently shows any E. uruguayensis form indeed.

The name "Echinodorus guianensis" is curious. In the trade it was once used for E. horizontalis: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Echinodorus_horizontalis
According to www.tropicos.org, in scientific botany Echinodorus guianensis is a synonym of Sagittaria guayanensis, a nice plant with floating leaves, seemingly not yet cultivated in aquariums.
I didn't yet know that "E. guianensis" is also used as a trade name for a E. uruguayensis form.

The leaves look very similar to the leaves of Echinodorus osiris. Are the newest leaves red or organge?
