Pointy Swords. Unique AMAZON Sword.
Do you want a great HARDY Sword with a unique look to it? Say hello to POINTY Swords.
These are as hardy and rugged as your regular sword but with a more pointy leaf.
Like most swords, these Pointy swords are a heavy root feeder and like a good substrate or at the least, some clay under their roots.
They get BIG
Grab a great background plant, grab a Pointy Amazon Sword.
AS OF 6-20-21 These Point Swords have been grown UNDERWATER for over 20 days. They have NICE Roots and are ready EXPLODE in your Aquarium! Not tall yet, but that is easily fixed by you planting it ;)
By the way, If you love the Pointy Leaf, you will love Decumbens!
Care Scale of 1-10: ( 1- it can grow in your toilet- 10 being nearly impossible)
Point Swords are a 2 (only because it might lose a few leaves that might have been grown above water.) This plant LOVES good nutrients at the substrate or heavy fertilization...
Can handle super low lighting, grows faster in high light
Where to Plant:
Background. Might be small at first but give it some time and it will be a monster in your background.
Plants arrived in good condition
I never had an aquatic plant take so quickly, and also start making new growth so quickly as did the Pointy Leaf Amazon Sword plants you sent me.
I ordered and was sent three (3), plants, and after I separated the three bundles of well rooted plants there were a total of nine (9), individual plants ranging in size from large to small. They were all well grown with very healthy top growth and sturdy, long roots. Every single plant took.
They did go into a fine, highly organic, sand substrate, which may have helped then take off, but I have planted other species of plants in the same aquarium that did not take and grow so well. Of course, comparing different species is like comparing apples to oranges, but I am glad I finally hit on the perfect background plant for my aquarium.
I am low tech, low light, with nutrient rich substrate, and wanted a vallisneria look, but not the 'creep along the water surface,' growth vallisneria makes as it reaches the surface, which shades the plants below and near the val too much. I expect the Pointy Leaf Amazon Sword plants to stop once they reach the water's surface. If they emerge a bit, that's OK, as long as they do not bend and creep across the water surface.
One last thing....no mail order aquatic plant company has ever sent me such well grown and well packaged plants as Dustin's Tanks has, ever before.
I am more than satisfied!
All came in looking amazing and healthy! Always glad to do business with Dirty D
2nd order and still happy. Actually had an extra plant thrown in.
