Under the right lighting conditions and when provided with some fertilizers, this plant will spread very quickly and form a lush and beautiful carpet in the front of your aquarium.

I purchased a LOT of plants so hard to write individual ones for them all so doing a group review to share amongst all the plants I got. First, communication was excellent. My questions were answered quickly and thoroughly and good recommendations were made. Shipment was fast and plants arrived in excellent condition. I got a lot of plants, mostly various anubias but also Monte Carlo, and two different sword plants. They arrived quickly and well packed and very very healthy. I hope I can keep them as healthy. I saw no signs of hitchhikers and they have been set up in their respective tanks for almost two weeks now with no issues. I did a massive re-aquascsping on all my already established tanks as well as setting up a new tank. I will be getting more plants from here in the future when I need them. Highly recommend.

Nice plants

These chain swords are growing very well in my tank. Came with a few brown leaves but I just pulled them off before I planted. Chain swords are root feeders, so root tabs are highly recommended!
