Agreed, very cool plant. Supplemental nutrition in forms of tablets or clay-balls (placed in the substrate near the root system), will also encourage a dense growth rate in the amazon sword. If they get too tall, try brighter lighting, as plants tend to grow as if they were stretching for light. Halides and high-kelvin halogen lights will suppress the plant and force it to grow fuller and not upward.

    Can you recommend a particular kind or brand of nutrition tablets? I have two big, beautiful swords with some reddish-brown in them. I have had them two months but they are beginning to deteriorate!

Will the dwarf anubias grow with the roots submerged in the substrate or does if have to be tied to rock or driftwood? Any pros and cons for the anubias if it is submerged in the substrate...

I love my swords! They probably one of the easiest plants to have in my opinion. All I use is liquid plant fertilizer and they look amazing. I've only had them about 3 months and they've already doubled in size. And the root system is huge, I was actually surprised when I looked under the tank. They're very attractive plants and the fish love to swim through the leaves. I'd highly recommend them.

This plant is magnificent. I put it in my 29g and it grew THREE INCHES overnight! I love the way it seems to change shape every day. Sometimes it grows thick collections of branches at the top that look like palm trees. Once it grows too big, you just snip it in the middle, attach a plant weight, and throw it somewhere else. Putting a bunch together makes a lovely bush effect.

I have taken care of this plant and I would say that thess plants are tough. They breed easily, too. This is one of my favourite aquarium plants.

Very pretty plant. Does seem to interfere with feeding though.

Great plant.. would be better if tied to rock or bogwood. Not planted.

I have wonderful luck with my jungle vallisneria, even though I have but a plain gravel substrate. It has always grown well, even with only occasional doses of liquid fertilizers. I do have to trim the leaves as they get too long for my 28 inch deep tank. Usually, they continue to grow with no permanent damage done. However, a few have not grown from the cut point but they do not rot either. I wish my twisted vallisneria would grow so easily!

"Anacharis" (Egeria densa) did NOT originate in North America. It is an exotic invasive and should NEVER be released or propagated outdoors. Egeria spp. are also easily confused with the similar-looking Hydrilla verticillatum, another invasive, which after released, has caused damage in the *hundreds of millions of dollars,* not to mention the difficult-to-quantify ecological implications. All "anacharis" plants should be properly disposed of (headed for water treatment plant or thoroughly dried before sending to a landfill). Elodea canadensis, another similar plant *is* native to North America, but identities are often too difficult to risk

This plant is good for any enviroment and grows fast under a good light. I use pro-glo from Hagen for lighting and can watch it grow. This plant can grow an inch a day. Only have had this plant for about two weeks but all my mollies love this plant and will peck at it and its flowers.
