The Amazon Sword plant (Echinodorus amazonicus) is quite popular in the aquarium hobby because of its impressive size, its simple yet majestic beauty, and its minimal care requirements. This plant can grow up to 20 inches in height with the proper lighting and water quality.  The formation of its stems and leaves makes it a member of the Rosette plants, which are known for their extremely short stem axes and the way their leaves grow upward from the base of the plant.
 
The plant is named for its sword-shaped leaves, which vary in color from pale to dark green. The leaves can become quite large, making this a perfect background plant for a large aquarium or a beautiful centerpiece in a small aquarium.
 
This plant ships as a bare root clump with 5 to 10 leaves. This plant does not need special or high intensity lighting, and can be kept in any freshwater aquarium.  As with all of our plants, our Amazon Swords are kept in water in a dedicated tank rather than plastic packaging, which means your plant will arrive much healthier.

Shipping Schedule for this service

UPS 1 Day: Monday through Thursday
 

Current Handling Time:

1-9 business days

Here at Aquatic Arts, we consider the welfare of the live animals we are shipping to be of the foremost importance. This process is much more involved than simply creating a shipping label and affixing it to a box. Depending on the order, it takes from 4 to 7 people to complete this process properly. We check the weather conditions here where they fly out of the Indianapolis UPS facility and the destination for each shipment. We start early each morning and go through a multi-step process to have the day's shipments prepared in time for the UPS pickup. The volume of orders in our system also affects the processing time. Therefore our stated handling time is 1-9 business days. 

Shipping Rate

Pricing is by size of package needed to fill entire order and distance it must travel. It will be calculated at checkout.
