Erio Malayatoor is a very cool, uncommon, larger erio species that is dark green in color and maxes out around 12” in height. It creates a dome like bush that is incredibly unique and really catches the eye.
it is a relatively undemanding Eriocaulon. We’ve grown it well with no CO2 but we find it prefers somewhat softer water like many of its family members. Care seems similar between Vietnam, lineare, aquaticum, and Dong Ha. They all thrive in softer water and do fine in low lighting with or without co2.
Once mature they readily produce baby plants that can easily be split from the outer edges of the mother plant. Growth is reasonably fast for an erio, and babies get large very quickly.
