Rubin Sword (the Red Monster)
Want a great looking contrast in the background of your aquarium?
Want a plant that will get about a foot tall and reward you with monster growth?
Say hello to the Rubin Sword.
The Rubin Sword is one of the many Sword variation developed by most likely Florida Aquatic Nurseries. These plants come from crossing swords that have developed red colors until the red is the main game. Perhaps this was done by a guy named Rubin? But I'm not sure.
NOW, HOW TO GROW a Rubin Swords?
Rubin Swords, Like ALL Amazon Sword types, are HEAVY Heavy Root Feeders. I would argue of ALL of the aquarium plants available... SWORDS EAT THE MOST FROM THEIR ROOTS. The Rubin Sword is no exception,
Naturally I recommend a Dirted Substrate and yes we do offer our own "Dustin's Dirt Packs." but how ever you are going to feed your plants at their roots is key. Root tabs aren't going to cut it in my opinion. (I get my nutrients from a bowl of salad not a pill)
The brighter the lights you have on these plants, the better.
These plants have been growing underwater for over a week as of 4-23. You will see one photo with extra color, that is a plant we found floating hence the wild growth and vibrant color
If you have a dirted tank and haven't tried a colorful sword, you don't know what you are missing.
healthy, beautiful plants!!! Dustin's is what every aquatic plant supplier needs to learn to mirror! Healthy, pest free, amazing!!!

Great looking swords. I appreciate the extra one. You are my go to plant guy. Many thanks.
