Echinodorus bleheri (Amazon Sword)
Echinodorus bleheri is commonly known as the'Amazon Sword' and has been very popular in the fish keeping hobby for many years and certainly the most popular sword we have on sale. The leaves are broad and can be straight. One plant can consist of up to 30 leaves and can reach 50cm in height. Echinodorus bleheri is therefore ideally placed in the rear sections of the aquarium as a background plant. The leaves are sturdy and can vary from light to dark green colours. The sturdy leaves mean it's ideal for larger fish keeping or one's who like to nibble on plants. As one of the hardiest plants around, it makes a perfect beginner plant or for larger aquariums.

Great looking plants and good condition. Was able to split up into 2 section so back of the tank is well covered. Doesn't need super deep substrate to plant, which is good for our tank. Great customer service - would definitely order from Aquarium Gardens again.

Beautiful healthy plants with excellent roots. Very well packaged. There were 2 good sized plants in the one pot I ordered. Worth the peace of mind to know they are snail-free and won't bring nasties into my tank. Best quality plants I have bought.

I ordered one of these, along with some other individual plants for my aquarium. They arrived within two days, very well packed and the plants were very healthy and of a good size too. Cannot fault them. My aquarium look really lush now. Would certainly recommend this company.

I ordered 2 Amazon swords a few months back and some tnc root tabs, I wouldn't usually write a review but they look so good in my tank I felt I had to! They make the tank look so natural great quality plants as usual from aquarium gardens

Excellent quality and have really grown in the last 2 months and filled the gap they were bought for. Thank you.
Reviewer: Jan Newcastle
Excellent. Beautiful plants - 2 per pot. Full and healthy with no need to trim. I have been buying aquarium plants online for 5+ years and these have surpassed all others. Will be coming back. Thank you.
Reviewer: Dave C Birmingham
Fantastic quality plants. You get two per pot and they're very decent sized already with good roots. Minimal prep needed. Just trimmed outer leaves and excess roots, took them each out the growing wool and pots and into the sand. Arrived promptly, well packed and potted. Ordered too many so be aware and don't waste money. They've already grown 2cm or so after 3-4 days with several shooters going up to the surface. Feeding TNC Complete and CO2 with Tetra Complete substrate.
