No. That looks like some terrestrial plant that my LFS was experimenting with to see if it could be live as an aquatic plant, but rotted away in 3 days when I tried it. Not sure the name, but I'm going to say not microsword.

I didn’t think it was a micro sword. The guy at the store said it was. It was unlabeled so I’m not sure if it’s aquatic or not

Looks a lot like petsmarts mondo grass, meaning it'll probably not, but you could just set it in a jar in the window to see

I think you’re right. But I’ll see if anyone else thinks differently

So how should I grow it now? Can I grow it like an emergent plant or do I have to grow it like a houseplant?
