    I got two of these swords three weeks ago and they are filling out nicely in some Aquariumplants.com soft-belly-substrate. Great marbling in the leaves and under good lighting those leaves get huge!!!! I am regretting that I did not order more!!!! Great job guys!

    I hesitate to write this since others may not have as good an experience as I have had with this plant. It arrived as advertised and was quite large with many unblemished 10"-12" leaves Plus an additional complete immature 5" plant PLUS an offshoot with 2 completely new plants. All for less than $4.

    I got two of these, and they turned out to be mother plants. Pretty soon I had 3 extra. It was a great deal, and they are gorgeous.
