Is this the norm?

Recommended Posts

Hey all, Is it the norm when you plant swords for them to die back 70 to 80%? Will they come back?

No fancy substrate just pebble & a little bit of Laterite. Co2 in tank & i use Seachem Flourish once or twice a week. Running T5 light with 4 blue & 4 white lights atm.

You can clearly see the 2 types of leaves.

The proper underwater leaves have shorter, less rigid leaves with more purple in them.

The out of water "going to die" leaves, are the outer ones.

They are more stiff and less translucent.

Swords grow incredibly fast out of water.

So they are often farmed that way.
