Care & Maintenance for Rosette Sword
Rosette Sword is a highly adaptable and hardy swordplant. It will do well in most aquariums. While tit has no specialized care requirements, Rosette Sword will do better if planted in nutrient rich substrate and provided with good light. Supplemental iron fertilization will aslo aid in more robust growth.
- Minimum Lighting Required: Moderate
- Temperature Range: 68-82°F
- Tank Placement: Midground - Background
Rosette Sword will grow up to approximately 10 inches and is thus an ideal plant for aquariums of all sizes. In smaller aquariums, it can serve as a focal point plant and be planted in the background areas of the aquarium. In larger setups, it can be positioned in front of large stem plants, hiding their stems and filling the midground spaces in the aquarium. You should trim older leaves if they become covered by algae. Sharp aquascaping scissors make this task easy.

Good buy. Plant was well packaged. I'm definitely buying again.
A little smaller than I expected, but the leaves are all clean and healthy
This sword arrived in excellent shape., if a little smaller than expected. However, it looks like it's taken to my tank and I fully expect it to do very well and grow in the space.
I am a newcomer to the art of keeping an aquarium. So, this is my first live plant. This is February and it arrived in the middle of a cold snap. I was quite happy when I opened the package and it was perfectly OK. I followed the instructions for unpacking my plants (I also ordered one other plant with this one) that were on the website and did not find any "hitch hikers". All of the leaves were undamaged. It has been in my small aquarium for about a week and is apparently doing very well. I am very pleased with the plant and the company.
Seriously beautiful specimens. Very happy to have ordered from here and will again!
plants arrived in great shape and are doing very well, already have several new leaves. look great in my tank.
big leaves and nice color
Smaller than expected, but very healthy and growing a new leaf
Came full and beautiful. Some leaves went transparent and started to not look so good. Trimmed those away and there is new growth!
I’ve tried other online providers in the past with mixed to quite disappointing results. The Rosette swords from Modern Aquarium were a bright green color with no yellowing or decayed leaves. All had strong, ample roots. I will not hesitate to order from these folks again.
Of all the plants I ordered this is my favorite. Great stalk structure and super healthy roots. Glad they had this variety and even more glad I went with the Rosette. Beautiful plant.
2 arrived in great condition. Lots of leafs as in the picture and about 6” tall as advertised. Each has 2 new leafs already since I received it last week.
