The Uruguay Swordplant originates from the subtropical southeastern part of South America. It develops large submerged stands in relatively cool rivers and streams. Echinodorus uruguayensis is known for many years as robust, easy to grow and very decorative aquarium plant. The leaves are strap-shaped, flexible, leathery and somewhat transparent.

Echinodorus uruguayensis is not demanding and thrives well with cooler temperatures of about 16-24 °C, also tolerating higher temperatures. It is even capable of overwintering in outdoor ponds as long as long as they don't freeze through. Medium lighting is sufficient. As well as all Echinodorus this species benefits much from a nutrient-rich bottom. It develops a creeping rhizome with time that can be splitted for propagation. Its inflorescences with big white flowers and adventitious plantlets appear rather rarely under aquarium conditions.
