This over 2 years ago stood out among the rest of the Swords for sale. No different name or price. But it's always grown paddle shaped leaves- not so much lanceolate as all the others. It never tries to grow out of the aquarium. Every spring it sends out a spike that has leaflets sprout out of.
Anyways,You don't hardly see this old timer in the hobby and I think it's worth a grow. Lots of light,iron and its happy.

That is a beautiful looking sword, very cool that it doesn't try to leave the tank like other swords do.

Thanks! Since it was not labeled..it might even be a dwarf form that tops out at 14" or so. I have a Marble Queen and its..very slow and very small. This plant in the photos grows before your eyes new leaves seemingly after every dose of iron. It kind of sat for months before I started the iron routine.
