This is a beautiful plant, really easy to grow. looks great in any tank; the fish love to swim in the leaves and hide behind them. neat to learn that it is actually a bog plant. This site is great, so much to read and learn all under one URL ...NICE JOB

Great plant, I originally bought one for my pond but I had to take that apart due to lack of planning.

Now it is in my aquarium and growing very quickly. I use 3 x 25 watts of lighting and I do have my aquarium covered.

I've had it like that for a month now with no problems, looks great.

i love my ozelot sword! this is a great plant for those who have failed at keeping other red leaved plants due to light requirements. This plant will easily adapt to your aquarium, and each plant looks a little different according to its setting. i have found it much easier to keep than the other swords. be sure to give it ample room to grow, and in a few months it will look as if it had been growing there forever. i think there is a place for an ozelot sword in every freshwater aquarium!

    We have duck weed in one of our tanks, and it grows like crazy. I think its because it is right under the lights, but we have to thin it often so the plants below will get light.

I've bought about 50 amazon sword plants of two varieties....the shopkeeper said they both are same plants...but they differ from each other so much.....one has more round leaves than the other and it's taller too....I guess the taller and more round leaved plant is the real amazon sword...then what is the other one?

    Amazon sword plants are usually grown emersed (in the air) by the nursery. The reason for this is they grow much faster because more CO2 is available from the air. CO2 is the major building block for plants. Emersed leaves have a long stem with a leaf portion that is rounded (think lolipops). When the plant is immersed in water, it will shed the old leaves and grow new ones that have a short stem with a narrower, pointed leaf portion. Growth will slow down because there is less CO2 in the water. Now you should realize that CO2 is not a pollutant, but is savored by all plant life. No CO2 = no green!

This plant seems to need lots of light. In my tall narrow triangular tank it grew well at the front - I didnt know it has a few months dormancy and threw it out. i have re-purchased but its at the back in a dark corner and not doing well at all.

I have 10 dwarf lily bulbs in my aquariums. All have sprouted and are growing well in my low light. (about 1.5 watts per gallon). I dose ferts and excel and they are a beautiful plant. Definitely helps add some color (reds/pinks) to the aquarium with out having to have the high light set-up most plants need to show red coloring...Love it!

i have one of these that just takes over the aquarium. it breeds ferociously and even when i take it out of the aquariun it just pops up with new ones. i want to control it better with a social fish that could eat the plant and help keep it under control.
