Couple things. How deep do you have the Sword planted. If the crown is too deep the plant will perish. Roots should be under the substrate but not the part where all the leaves come together at the base of the plant. Using root tabs will also help the Sword. They are heavy root feeders. The other plant(looks like Val) won't tolerate Flourish Excel. Don't know if your using it or not, but if so that could be the problem with the Val.
Also 50%+ water changes every week will help the plants greatly.
