Amazon Swords are one of the oldest plants kept in the hobby, loved for their ease of care and ability to tolerate a wide range of conditions. Amazon swords can grow up to 20 inches or more, take care to give this plant fertilizer at the roots in the form of root tabs.

Arrived promptly and in good condition. Nice addition to my heavily planted 75G.
I’ve had this amazon sword for 23 days and it completely melted but as you can see it’s growing a new leave at the bottom (the middle amazon sword). I only get plants that work with my water parameters and I don’t inject CO2 or fertilizer into the aquarium so that’s probably why it’s growing slow. The melting leaves are a good source of food for my balloon mollies!
We recently purchased an Amazon Sword plant for Aquarium Co-op. It is beautiful and is a striking addition to our tank. We can't believe how much it has grown in the short amount of time we have had it. It hides the unsightly wires and hoses in the back of the tank all while making the tank look amazing. We will definitely buy plants from Aquarium Co-op again.
Received my amazon sword plant May 29th in great condition. So this is 30 days later and it's doing great. Cut back the original larger leaves about a week ago do to an out break of black beard algae. Started applying Easy Green fertilizer and all plants are doing great, and the BBA is all but gone. Going for some amazon fern next.
Big beautiful plant that's growing fast
