My sword is doing great as the centerpiece of my tank! It has started to grow multiple new leaves, some of which have even turned a reddish color! I would definitely recommend! It is very pretty and I love the marble detail on the leaves.

Best of the order
No marbling, it’s a solid pale green but arrived in great shape.
Queen sword came im in great condition. Not doing well as I am a beginner. Have substrate, rooted nicely. Plants are browning, getting limp and holes are happening in leaf. What am I doing wrong? How can I be successful?
Might be finicky
This plant is not doing so well in a betta tank. While others are. This plant might be finicky.
Laying down roots
I’m a sucker for variegated plants… and these absolutely took off, I can see new roots under my substrate and new leaves starting to poke out. Hopefully I’ll get better marbling on the new growth.
