With their bladelike appearance and impressive endurance, the Amazon Sword Plant has earned a spot among the most popular aquatic plants.
The Amazon Sword Plant (Echinodorus grisebachii/amazonicus) is an aquatic plant that has become very popular with fish keepers worldwide over the past several years.
It originates from the extremely diverse and beautiful Amazon River basin.
Although the whole Echinodorus genus is known as Amazon Sword Plant, many aquarists refer to the Echinodorus grisebachii or Echinodorus amazonicus as the true Amazon Sword Plant – they are the same plant.
Even though you will find lots of plants being sold as the Amazon Sword Plant, this isn’t a problem because they more or less all require the same tank conditions and have the same care needs.
