Johnny, if there are 3 to a pot, one pot is plenty. I bought one lone plant in October 2008 and within 5 months it was everywhere in the 90g tank. I pull up runners and plantlets every 2 weeks to keep it in check along the front. Which is fine, it is a good plant for the front and substrate cover, grows fast so is filtering the water well, and it must be happy.
In my 115g I have a similar chain sword, E. quadricostatus, slightly larger leaves. These plants are direct decendants from one plant I bought in 1997. I also yank these out regularly.
