AllFishNoBrakes Posted March 5 Share Posted March 5 (edited) What’s up everyone? Long time ACO follower, avid forum user, but first time posting in the plant section. I have a giant Amazon Sword that was the first aquatic plant I ever purchased when I set up my first tank in 2020. This bad boy is coming up on 3 years old. I feed it lots of root tabs, and for the third time it’s throwing off runners with new baby Amazon Sword growing off those runners. The other two times this has happened, I’ve let the baby swords (swordlets?!) develop roots like in the pictures above. From there, I’ve harvested the runners and replanted the baby Swords The two pictures above are from the same harvest/replanting and are in the same tank. These guys are from the first harvest and in a different tank. These baby swords just simply aren’t growing as explosively as I’ve had other swords grow, and I’m curious what I’m missing? Do they just take a long time to establish and go crazy? More root tabs? More root tabs more often? If I’m totally honest, I’m more into breeding fish and raising them up than I am on propagating plants, but I feel like you plant enthusiasts can give me some tips on what I’m missing. Any and all advice is welcome. Cheers, Nerms. Edited March 5 by AllFishNoBrakes 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
