Red it is

So I decided to place an order for the Red Rubin Sword, In the 2 weeks in my tank, it has sprouted new red leaves and looks great. No melt just almost instant growth.

Red Rubin sword

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.

Great plants

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.
