Radican Green Sword

Seems to be doing OK in a tank that has been difficult for any plant other than Vallisneria.

Sword damage #1

Plant was damaged...several leaves were "bleached" of chlorophyll half way across or completely. I suspect damage a result of contact with the Ice Pak, but new growth is beginning to emerge, so it looks like it will survive

Good quality item

I ordered a small bare-root sword and it came a little larger than expected. The roots were healthy and all of the leaves looked great! I haven’t found any stow away snails either. It was definitely worth purchasing.
