Echinodorus Cordifolius, also known as Radicans Sword Plant, originates from North America and Mexico.  It produces very attractive leaves that are circular in shape, making the plant a focal point in any aquarium including in a well-planted aquarium.  This plant is undemanding and will grow well under varied conditions.  It will grow faster and larger if provided with good lighting, substrate and iron-based fertilizers.  If you want to keep the plant short, more compacted or tidy, remove large and older leaves occasionally.

    Small but pretty

    The plant received was small, and several leaves were damaged in shipping (it happens). Swords are hardy, it will be fine! The marbling is really going to make this plant the showpiece of the tank when it fills in more.

    Beautiful and healthy

    This is my first plant purchase for my first planted tank. I am very impressed with all the plants I received. The marbling was stunning and only one very small leaf on the plant has "melted"

    Plant about 7" tall. Received quickly and nice and healthy and pest free. I love the pattern coloring of the leaves. Now if my darn fish would stop digging it up!

    I will write just one review because my comments hold true for all the plants I have received from Modern Aquarium. This is the only place I will buy aquatic plants for my aquarium. They are healthy and do not have snails or snail eggs on them. I am still battling the snails that came in on plants from an aquarium store, and pet stores can't be trusted, either.

    1st time purchased

    Love the plant and it came in healthy but seems to be struggling in the aquarium. Fingers crossed it will adapt since colors of the plant are fairly unique in the hobby.
