Amazon Swords

Ok so if someone is going to grow only amazon swords, I know these are low light and root feeders. So if you had a good substrate like eco complete and had a little over 1 watt per gallon, could you grow a lot of amazon swords?? or would the light be to low for the low light swords

They would grow, but growth would be slower.

They would not grow to well, they like high light. Low light would make them
grow long skinny leaves.

I agree. I have grown them very large with a little over 2 wpg. 2.36 wpg to be exact.

I have one now that is putting off leaves larger than my hand.
