Re:Echinodorus berteroi

       From: David Whittaker <dwhitt at magma_ca>

I have what I believe is E. berteroi. It has the variable leaf forms,
the long petiole, and will form emergent leaves. Hwoever, plantlets
will also grow from the flower stalk. According to both Windelov
and Rataj, this does not occur in this species. What species might it
be or are these authors all wet?

If the smaller submersed leaves are strap-like, with little or no visible
petioles, then it ought to be E. berteroi.  I don't think there is any
other Echinodorus species that has leaves like that.
