As always, my purchase was based upon an on line generic picture. So, I had hopes the plants I received would be as nice as the representation, but they were not! They have a very healthy root system and are holding their own , but the plants were small and I had to cut off half of the leaves of each received as the were stuffed into a plastic bag with folded leaves that then started to die when planted .The other leaves showing stress had very large brown spots, representative of a high concentration of nitrates from where they were grown. As mentioned they are now holding their own but not from a non problematic beginning.
Got a bunch of different sword plants for my 75 gallon tank. All of them are growing great. I used red flourite substrate mixed with poolfilter sand.
