My book claims up to twelve inches for the Red Flame, but then again it also only claims ten inches for my Ozelot Green, and it got to sixteen inches before I trimmed it back. As long as you leave some of the smaller leaves you won't have any problems if you trim the tall leaves back to the rosette.You can even cleave the rosette in the middle and turn it into two plants without problem and propagate it that way, they fill out again within time. My Red Flame currently is only around eight to nine inches, so still within given stats.

My amazon swords are not doing too well, I just placed some root tabs underneath them so hopefully they grow. Here you can see how they look when aren't doing so well. The swords are on the right btw this tank isnt done yet so there are much fish or plants in it yet.

Did you just plant them? I have some small red flame swords I just planted that look about that same, and I think it's just the melting process.

I have an ozelot sword that's pretty happy in my 20 gallon long tank.  The leaves touch the glass on front and back, and reach the surface of the water.  It's been sending up shoots with numerous blooms, which then turn into baby plants.  I just noticed the third shoot a few days ago.
