  • Easy to Grow
  • Spreads Quickly

Dwarf chain sword or pygmy chain sword is one of the easiest carpeting plants. It grows to about 4 inches tall and has a grassy appearance. It will thrive if given medium to high lighting and will fill in pretty fast once it gets established.

Dwarf chain sword will self-propagate by sending out runners all across your aquarium substrate. The new baby plants can be trimmed off and replanted or left to grow out naturally.

Note: The leaves may experience melting when first planted. See the Directions section below on how to help them recover.

  • Scientific Name: Helanthium tenellum
  • Native To: North, Central & South America
  • Skill Level: Easy
  • Placement: Foreground to Midground
  • Co2 Requirement: none

  • Note: Sword plants are sometimes known to experience melting when they suddenly move to a new environment. To help the plant recover faster and grow new leaves that are accustomed to your water parameters, leave the roots planted in the ground and make sure to provide nutrient-rich planted tank substrate or Easy Root Tabs.
