Micro Sword

Micro Sword, also known by its scientific name as Liaeopsis Brasiliensis, originates from South America. This grasslike plant produces a thick and lush "lawn" and is sought after by those aquascapers who aim to recreate grassy fields in their aquariums.

Care & Maintenance

Micro Sword propagates from side shoots. It will grow best when planted in a nutrient-rich substrate and provided with good light. It will reach approximately 1.5 to 3 inches in height.

  • Minimum Lighting Required: Moderate to Strong
  • Temperature Range: 70-83° F
  • Tank Placement: Foreground

Micro Sword should be planted in groups and allowed to spread across the foreground of the aquarium.

Micro Sword is also available potted.

    Micro sword is dying on me less than a week. I am new to the hobby, purchased substrate, water concentrated for 4 weeks with Prime before adding plants. What am I doing wrong? Lighting is 8-10 hours a day. Micro sword is translucent and weak looking, not standing tall and lively. HELP

    Nice plant

    Received a good sized, healthy clump with a number of tiny baby plants already attached. It was enough to break up and spread across a pretty good sized area of my tank. This stuff spreads like crazy, so in a few months, I should have a lush carpet!

    Ordered 3 of the micro swords and wasn't disappointed. Each bunch contained quite a bit of plants. Well worth it.

    Came as described.I cannot find anything negative to say about any of the plants I received. Very healthy and growing perfectly. Customer care is great I was notified about each step of the shipping and arrived having been very professionally packed. This will be my go-to and most recommended company from now on. No complaints.

    I have ordered from other sites, but have to say this was a great experience with good prices. Arrived in great condition and thick and good height. I trimmed the tops and they are looking very healthy. Will order from this site again!!!
