Amazon sword is a common name for multiple plant species in the Echinodorus genus, like Echinodorus bleheri and Echinodorus amazonicus. These lush, green rosette plants are among the most popular aquarium plants because they are very easy to grow, even for beginners.
Because of the size this plant can reach (up to 20 inch/50cm or even taller), Amazon sword is best used as a background plant in larger aquariums: the large, green leaves make it a great focal point.
To plant your Amazon sword, just stick it in the substrate and make sure the roots are covered to prevent it from floating back up. Because these plants are such quick growers, they will really appreciate some extra nutrients in the form of root tabs or nutrient rich specialty soils.
