    Amazon swards are a medium to high light plant if you only use low light it may not grow just stay where it's at or worse die.

    That's untrue. I have just an led lamp on a 10 gallon with amazon swords and they grow pretty good.

    What's the wattage on the light?

    40 watts. I also have fluval stratum that helps them grow

    30 watts for a 10 gallon would do it so that's why yours are growing good.
