Amazon Sword (Echinodorus sp) | Set of Two
Amazon Sword (Echinodorus sp) originates from South America. It’s one of the most common and popular live aquarium plants in the hobby. The popularity of Amazon Sword plants in aquariums can be attributed to their beauty, adaptability, and ease of husbandry.
Amazon Sword will produce dense and large green leaves, providing a beautiful background for your aquascape and making it an ideal plant to be used as a focal point in your aquarium. This plant can also be used to "hide" aquarium equipment such as heaters, filter intakes, and more.
Care & Maintenance
Amazon Sword plants in aquariums are not demanding, and they don’t require high lighting. They can be kept in a wide range of aquarium conditions to accommodate most of your tank inhabitants needs.
- Minimum Lighting Required: Moderate-High
- Temperature Range: 68-82°F
- Tank Placement: Background
You can plant an Amazon Sword in gravel. No specialized soil is required although it will do much better in a loosely packed substrate. Keep in mind that the roots of this plant can grow to be very large, extending deep and wide in the tank, allowing it to effectively absorb nutrients produced by fish waste. If any of your other plants need room to spread out, you might want to plant them farther apart. Amazon Sword plants will propagate readily in aquariums by spreading runners.
