Why does my Amazon Sword have long skinny leaves?
I've got a 70 gallon corner aquarium with about 125W of CF light. It's populated with your standard low light plants. Crypts, Dwarf Sag, Moneywart, Hornwart, Anubias, Java Fern, and a couple of amazon swords. The swords have been in for about 5 or 6 months, and they are growing alright, but instead of the traditional wide leaf of the end of a long stem, the leaves have almost no stem and are 7-10 inches long and maube 1.5 inches wide. I assume this is because of the low light, but I thought that low light might make the stems even longer as they reached for the top. I'm growing them in a 29 gallon with a few juvi discus at around 2wpg, and I'm getting the same result. Is this typical?
