Common Name: Rosette Sword, Tropica Sword
Rosette sword plants are incredibly adaptable, making them a perfect choice for many types of aquariums. This stem plant grows in a rosette formation, producing long, pointed, light green leaves that have a hammered texture and prominent veins. It is more compact than other available sword plants. The bright color and coarse texture make this plant excellent for a mid- or foreground focal point.
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 faster if needed. Iron supplement may be needed in some tanks. Rosette sword plants will grow submersed or emersed, with emersed plants producing small flowers.
These plants propagate through side shoots off of their leaves, which can be trimmed and replanted into the substrate. To control the size of your Rosette sword plant you can remove the side shoots and older leaves.

Arrived beautiful and is thriving in my tank!
I'd almost given up on growing Swords (since apparently I can grow Crypts but not Swords?) so I tried my luck again. And as luck would have it, in these pots there are three sword plants! So one of them will survive at least. The roots are a bit shallow but that works for my substrate. All arrived in great condition and I do see a bit of melting but that is to be expected.
