This is a cracking plant that definitely suits a larger aquarium as it can grow quite big. If you're looking for impact then look no further as this species grows into one of the biggest amazon swords.

It's fast growing, looks great and if you let it reach the surface of your aquarium then it may well grow out of it and if this is the case, you're likely to see a white flower above the water line (very attractive!). However you can keep it short by removing any leaves that look as if they are reaching for the surface.

So place this plant towards the back of your tank and it will look fantastic. It's also suitable in the usual pH and water temperatures and moderate to high lighting.

Happy growing!

Ordered two mother plants which were delivered promptly and very well packed. Between the two pots there were nine sizeable plants which I separated before planting. All are producing new leaves in less than a week. Very high quality plants. Delighted.

Impressed again with Aqua Essentials. Sent me a lovely, large healthy mother plant, which split nicely into 4 plants. Looks stunning in the tank.

the mother plant came very well packaged and protected and in tip top condition. It is now settling into the tank and looks very healthy and a lovely light green. Excellent and speedy service from the moment I ordered online.
