Phantom240 Posted July 13, 2021 Share Posted July 13, 2021 Now that my sword is finally getting some nice lush growth, I'm trying to figure out which subspecies it is. It was sold at a big box store as Echinodorus Amazonica, or "Amazon Sword", however its foliage makes me think otherwise. Instead of wider, plumper leaves, mine seems to be fairly narrow, and taking on an almost ruffled edge to most of the larger growth. I'm thinking it might be Echinodorus Martii, or "Ruffle Sword", since it seems to be maxing out at about 14" tall, and equally as wide. Sorry for the less than stellar pic, bowfronts with CO2 "sprite water" aren't the easiest to get a good shot... especially with the photobombing long fin black skirt tetras. I don't think the shape of the foliage is due to any nutrient deficiencies, since I'm dry dosing weekly per EI. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
