Amazon Sword (Echinodorus bleheri) is a large, beautiful bright green. Needs a rich substrate (root nutrients). This plant is undemanding and beautiful. A nutritious bottom promotes growth, but the plant needs pruning to prevent it depriving plants underneath of light. Echinodorus bleheri does well even in poorly illuminated aquariums, as it grows towards the light. It is a hardy and easy solitary plant for both beginners and the more experienced with quite large aquariums.

    Great Plant

    Posted by Ross on Aug 22nd 2012

    I received my plants a week ago. They arrived in excellent shape and already putting out new leaves. Couldn't be happier and the price is great for the size plant you get.

    Easy to grow and fast

    Posted by Brad Darnell on Jul 13th 2012

    These make perfect corner background plants. They grow fast and beautiful in a low to moderate light eco complete substrate. The will also propagate with new swords rapidly after getting established. I was actually throwing them away due to no more space to plant.

    Big beautiful green plants

    Posted by chris simonis on Dec 17th 2011

    I ordered 4 of these 2 months ago while cycling a new tank in a low tech setup with Flourite substrate and 2 36" Coralife 96 watt 10000 k hoodsand Flouris excel. Plants arrived in perfect condition about 14 " high. Bright green leaves and large root system. They've grown 4 " since while doubling the amount of leaves on plant. I've trimmed them 2 times already.

    All the plants I received were in excllent condition and fluorishing after just a couple of days. I will definitely order from aquariumplants.com again - even better quality that the plants I used to receive when I worked in a local fish store. Beautiful, bright, healthy, excellent! Well worth it!

    The BEST

    Posted by Brittany A. on Sep 30th 2010

    This was my first order with them, and I have to say from the customer serive all the way to the aquarium plants, they deserve 5 stars. These plants came i bigger than expected. They were around 12" tall. I ordered 3 of them. It brings so much natural beauty to an aquarium.
