  1. Plants
    So my Amazon Sword has grown quite large. It's now sending flower stalks to the surface. I con't seem to find advice regarding a concern I have. I understand that the plant wants to send these stalks out of the water in order to produce flowers. Naturally the humidity in my home (New York in...

    I have a 55 gal, high tech, started about 7 months ago. After battling several issue I have it now on PPS-PRO and my plants are exploding with growth. Is there anything I can do to get my amazon sword to shoot some runners? I would like to get one or two more in the same aquarium. The amazon...

    I have a 75 that's been running for about two years ago and I wanted to see what others feel about the plant maintenance I've been doing. The substrate is all Eco Complete ( I know, some love it, some hate it). When I first set it up I added Seachem fert tabs and I've been adding them every six...

    I'm struggling with these swords in my tiny tank. Absolutely no idea why I bought such a large plant for such a small tank. It was in the early days of the tank and I had basically no knowledge or experience. I can't get them to grow properly; they have always had some kind of deficiency which...

    Hi, first post here. I've been wanting to do planted tanks for a long time and the opportunity came up for a cheap setup at a pretty remarkable price, so I got a 40 gallon long aquarium. However, I might have made a few mistakes, and I'd like the input of veterans. I watched a rather simplistic...

    I'm fairly new to planted tanks and this is also my first post to the forum. Sorry... this is sort of long. I've had a 29 gallon tank for about a year now but I redid it 2 months ago. When I redid it, I added 2 amazon swords (plus some other plants). I got a fairly large bleheri amazon sword...

    I bought some Amazon swords and left them for about 2 weeks, half submersed outside before planting them, however I'm not sure if it's normal for the roots to look like that: Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet Are they rotting? I...

    I did not invest in some good lightning set nor do I have co2, but that won't be necessary other than the lights since I'm going low tech. For the moment, my LFS is selling the plants for dirt cheap, so I thought I'd buy a handful amount before they go out of stock. Would putting the plants half...

    I currently have a three gallon tank with an African Dwarf Frog, a Ghost Shrimp and a Nerite Snail. Sadly the tank is a cheapo Walmart tank with a small little LED light. I have a Amazon Sword and it is having trouble growing and continues to die off. I just bought some root tablets in order to...

    I just have a quick question about my amazon sword. I've noticed that some of the leaves look a bit wrinkled. But I don't know if this is what it's supposed to look like or if maybe there's a minor calcium deficiency. The plant looks healthy anyways because I add flourish tabs and O+ tabs...
