Kleiner Bar Sword (Echinodorus sp. Kleiner Bar)
Kleiner Bar Sword is a hybradized species of the Swordplant. It is believed to be a cross of Echinodorus Barthii and Uruguayensis. Under ideal conditions, Kleiner Bar Sword will produce deep reddish-colored leaves. Otherwise, Kleiner Bar Sword's leaves will sport vibrant green color with accenting reddish stems.
Care & Maintenance for Kleiner Bar Sword
As with other Swordplants, nutrient rich substrate, regular fertilization, and good light will ensure the plant's robust growth. However, Kleiner Bar Sword is highly adaptable and will grow under varied aquarium conditions.
- Minimum Lighting Required: Moderate
- Temperature Range: 68-82°F
- Tank Placement: Background
Kleiner Bar Sword should be planted in the background areas of the aquarium. It can be an ideal focal point in the aquarium. Its relatively large size can also be utilized to "hide" various aquarium equipement such as heaters, filter intakes, and pumps.

Been about 3+ weeks. I already had a few swords in my tanks and added 2 more from "Modern Aquarium. The Kleiner Bar seems to be the slowest growing of them all. Healthy, but slow growing. Has grown a few extra leaves.
Hello Modern Aquarium, thank you for these (13) plants all alive ,only had them for 5 days, 2 fertilizer tablets per plant (Plant Aquarium Concept) ask again on October 22 ,2022
These aquarium plants add a nice feature to the tank and are sturdy! Highly recommended.
Great plant, strong roots, nice leaves (one leaf looked like it had been cut, it was pointy instead of rounded - no big deal).
Big, strong plant. It looks amazing and very healthy and clean. I love it!
Wow! This plant is large with many leaves and a HUGE root system already that I needed to trim back. It even got stuck at FedEx 5 days longer than it should've, and still gorgeous. Very happy.
