In my experience, not all amazon swords have stalks

raulfd4 So, I should cut the stalk (the long, stiff, green thing coming out of the middle) as far down as possible to remove it from the mother plant.

Then, I'll have the stalk with 3 "nodes" of new growth. (I am calling the little bunches of tiny green balls nodes.)

Then, I remove the stalk from the babies and plant them. Do I plant all of those little nodes, as well? Or should I wait until all of the little green balls bloom into new leaves? Or are the roots coming out of those little green balls? It's hard for me to tell.

jhays79 Lucky! I've got some decent size swords and have yet to get any runners.

OVT Cut off the entire stalk from the mother plant when the babies have 3-5 leaves. Cut the stalk off the babies, trim the roots a bit and plant.

How to propagate amazon swords

My echinodorus amazonicus has a nice flower stalk growing out of it.

There are three sets of "nodes" that have grown new leaves and are starting to sprout roots.

I was wondering what I should do with these and how i could maybe grow some more by splitting them off. Where to cut, how to plant, etc.
