    Large and pretty

    These plants have a beautiful red color in the large leaves. Highly recommend this plant if you have the space. My leaves are maybe 24" long, and they spread out over a large area. Mine does well in a low tech tank with low to moderate light and a once a week dose of Seachem Flourish.

    This is a great, easy to grow sword with the right conditions: fine-grained substrate, deep (min 4 in+) substrate, bright light, fertilizer (pellets), laterite and CO2 injection. The leaves easily reach 18 in are a beautiful deep red almost burgundy color. Under less favorable conditions, the leaves are mostly green.
