I bought these amazon swords on amazon. I was wondering why the leaves are growing so narrow? What species is it? They’ve been growing submersed for 2-3 months and most of the rounded emersed leaves have melted back. I fertilize with nilocg low tech liquid fertilizer and seachem root tabs with a kit light (8 hrs/day) and black sand substrate. How can I have them grow more fuller? Thanks

The rounded leaves are the emersed form, narrow leaves are submersed. You may as well trim off any of the round leaves because they will all eventually melt back. This will encourage the plant to focus on supporting healthy new growth.


Submersed plants can look drastically different than their emersed forms.
