Dwarf Amazon Sword plants are rarely seen in the aquarium hobby, but they are easily kept and add subtle colour and graceful movement to the foreground of your aquarium. These stem plants produce oblong leaves that are bright green in colour. This plant appears similar to a grass, but the leaves are broad and textured which creates depth in your aquascape.

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 deficiency can be a problem for this plant and iron supplement may be needed. When iron is deficient leaves turn yellow and droopy. Dwarf Amazon sword plants will grow submersed or emersed.

Dwarf Amazon swords propagate through runners that can be trimmed and replanted if desired. Prune regularly if you wish to prevent the plant from spreading.
