Sword Amazon (Echinodorus bleheri)AquariumPlants.com
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.

The August 4 for 3 deal was great for me! I got 4 of these and they were large, healthy plants. Very satisfied customer.
My shipment was over night. 32 plants in great condition. I do not think the Sag's like my lighting even thou one is flowering. Any plants die and they will be replaced with this amazing sword!
great plant came in great shape took off seems to be doing well
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.
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.
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.
My plants were beautiful and arrived in perfect condition!
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!
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.
