Radican Sword plants offer excellent and attractive coverage to the background of an aquascape. These plants have short stems and long, ovoid leaves that are bright green in color and somewhat transparent, with prominent veins. The leaves’ translucency catches the light beautifully. Radican sword plants are great for community fish tanks as they will tolerate a range of water parameters. Radican swords grow quickly, which can be helpful if you wish to fill in a background or mid-ground area of a tank.

With a nutrient rich substrate these plants will tolerate most lighting conditions, but moderate to high lighting is ideal. CO2 injection is not necessary but will help the plant grow even faster if needed. Radican sword plants grow in a rosette formation and can get rather large so they need to be pruned regularly in a small tank. They can be great plants for large size tanks, and will grow either submersed or emersed. Emersed plants produce tiny white flowers, and even submersed plants can occasionally send out a flowering shoot.

Radican sword plants propagate through side shoots off of their rhizome, which can be trimmed and replanted into the substrate. To control the size of your Radican sword plant you can remove the side shoots and older leaves.
