This Sword grows quite tall however no matter how tall it does get the leaves will always remain in the water due to the flexibility of the leaves. Note: photos are of adult specimens previously sold. This sword loves light more than your average green sword. Be sure it receives full light and it not shaded by driftwood or other plants.
N.B. This plant may or may not contain harmless non-plant eating aquatic snails (if you do not wish to keep aquatic snails in your aquarium please refer to our plant dip section under the FAQ and inspect your plants thoroughly for clear gel like snail eggs).
