How do you trim them? Just trim the dead leaf/stem near the base? Yrs ago I purchased a 24"+ one and was amazing. Over time, I had somehow mutilated it pretty bad and just removed it. Since I had to tear down the tank completely for flooring in the house, I am starting fresh and would love to acquire another beautiful plant of that nature, but not have the same out come.

And is that the same with say a Rose sword, or any other sword?

And thank you for your quick replies!!

Peel the outer leaves like an artichoke. They are also heavy root feeders, so find some Osmocote Plus and make up some gel caps. They love it and will grow like gangbusters.
