I agree that it is definitley some sort of Sword. Perhaps Ruffled Sword (Echinodorus Major) or Uruguay Sword (Echinodorus Uruguayensis).

Sorry Hussain but that's nothing like a Madagascar Lace Plant. I've had many over the years. It's definitley a Sword of some kind.

It looks to me as the Aponegeton boivinianus plant.

Now your confusing me Striker. The lower leaves look like the A. Boivinianus but the leaves on the longer stalks are fatter & rounder like a Sword. Almost like there are two plants growing in the same spot. Do you know if the Boivinianus can be grown emersed? That would explain the differnt leaves being on it.

I've never seen one before. Now that I have googled them, I want one.

He's asking if it can be grown emersed (roots in water, leaves out of water)
Since Aponegeton are bulbs I don't think they are grown emersed just submerged. Of course that's just my thoughts
