    I already had one grown-from-small Amazon Sword in my tank and wanted another near it with similar size. When this showed up I was very impressed by its size, dwarfing my own plant by at least 3 inches, although much less dense. Within 1-2 months it is just as dense as my original, roughly 10-11" tall and covered in new growth. I have already harvested two fully developed runner plants from it, filling out the space even further. Excellent piece compared to the smaller offerings for a minor convenience fee.

    Agree, this thing is a monster

    Mine was "only" 23 inches long including the roots. Went to the top of a 55 gal, with some leaves floating on the surface. May have to trim to get a bushier growth. Looks extremely healthy, with a solid root structure and beautiful leaves.

    Large? Try enormous!!!

    Large is a relative word. What my LFS considers large is definitely different from what aquariumplants.com considers "large". I purchased one of these expecting a sword in the 12-15" range. What I got was a massive sword. This sword was about 24" in length. Had 3 large runners, each with 3-4+ additional baby plants on them. Unfortunately this plant was too tall for my 20" tall aquarium so I decided to cut all the stems back the roots. Fast forward 2 weeks and this has vigorously come back and currently has 8 nice size leaves and roots spreading everywhere. I hated cutting it back but now have the right sized plant in my planted aquarium. An absolutely gorgeous specimen.
