The Aflame sword is a highly sought after Echinodorus thats considered quite rare in the hobby. Some argue that that the awesome name of this plant provided inspiration for the flaming sword used by Beric Dondarrion and Thoros of Myr in Game of Thrones. The leaves of this unique plant can range from green to red depending on the growing conditions and the addition of iron can help in bringing out the robust coloration
Propagation is simple and straightforward like other stem plants. Simply cut along the stem and replant the cuttings.
Remove tissue culture gel before planting. Simply wash the gel away or soak the plant in water and squeeze the gel off with your fingers.

Easy transaction from order to receipt of shipment. Securely packed and plants looks exactly as pictured. There are 6-7 individual plants.
All the plants I received were lush and healthy even though my delivery was in the cold living up north
Incredible healthy, well developed, full cups of plants. Very satisfied! I have not decupped them yet, as I'm storing them for a short period, but looks like a couple dozen plants at least.
Good quality cups too, no contamination.
One of the most unique swords I've ever seen. Color is unlike any other, and it's retained (in my experience) indefinitely. Got two TC. Was able to wiggle them apart into quite a few beautiful healthy individual plants. Take your time and use a light touch. I've got big hands and fingers and was able to do it with almost zero damage.
