I challenge everyone to ID this plant


Bought some time ago from pet smart in the plastic tubes.

They no longer sell this.

Known facts about this:

I bought 2 that turned into 15 over 5 months.

Reproduces by splitting off at the base stem / root.
Grows fast and seems to max growth height at 6-8 inches, also grows in a way to chain swords( growing horizontally like a bush.)

Aquarium adventure plant guru's and experts cannot ID but believe it to be some type of sword. Other forums cannot ID this...

Grows well in low lighting or high lighting.


Any takers?

While not exactly important, I would really like to know what sword..

I haven't seen a sword like this before.

Anyone know the name or the scientific name?
