Echinodorus Quadricostatus, commonly known as Chain Sword Broad Leaf or Dwarf Swordplant, originates from Brazil.  This short plant is ideal for use in the foreground.  Provided with good conditions, lighting, and rich substrate or proper fertilization, Chain Sword will grow quickly spreading across the substrate through runners.  The plant will adapt and grow differently depending on the intensity of lighting.  While not required, this plant will appreciate fertilization and, if you notice yellowing leaves, add iron fertilizer such as Seachem Flourish Iron.

    The plant arrived in great shape! I was very pleased to see how healthy the plant was. After soaking it in room temperature for over 24 hours, I planted it in my aquarium. I hope it likes it’s new home.

    Exactly what I was looking for

    Posted by Jason Andino on 5 Jan 2021

    I've searched for a couple weeks before I ordered my chain sword from here. Most sites I came across wouldn't specify which chain sword they were selling, but Modern Aquarium actually had the broad leaf version I was seeking. I was so happy when my order arrived, perfect all around.
