TODAY'S Plants are bigger and look BETTER than the photos!

This is a sweet type of more narrow leaf Amazon Sword from Argentina. 

Like all swords this is a heavy root feeder. It will do "OK" with root tabs but likes a big "Meal" of dirt or at least some sort of planted tank substrate. (Yes it will thrive using our "Dustin's Dirt Packs"  Premier Aquarium Substrate)

Like most swords these was originally grown above water as you can tell by the "Spoon" looking leaves.

This plant might melt back a bit as it will have to adjust to underwater growth as you plant it into your aquarium.

This is a great background plant and is a pretty easy beginner plant. It is not very light demanding, but the more light you give it, the faster it will grow and the better it will look.

On a scale of 1 to 10. This Argentiensis Sword is a 3 (only because of the potential melt back)

Shipped well but weather was a factor.

Received the plants well bundled and shipped promptly. Unfortunately we had very low temps the week it shipped. Despite not ordering it the company included a heat pack so kudos to the shipping department. They tried their best but the cold temps did a number on the plants. Arrived with the leaves yellowing. After a week in the tank the yellowed leaves have started to die off. We'll see if the plants make it. Given all that I still gave the order a high rating due to the company going above and beyond including the fee heat pack and it being packed well. Previous orders have been great! Mother nature just caught up to me on this one.
