Default Re: Echinodorus species experiences?

I actually have to disagree with some of the comments. I've been keep swords for maybe 20-30 years, and compared to all other plants they are very low light tolerant (more so than anubias). when grown emerged, they do not get that big (at least i've never gotten them very big at all).

I do find them to be a little more difficult to grow than most other plants when not in aquarium. transition might be easier if you get the hydroponically grown ones so that you dont' have to adapt them. you can tell the emerged grown plants by tthe shape of the leaves--they will be rounder with a long stem. they also feel waxier, and thicker.
