Lets play guess that sword. At least I believe it is a sword. I liked the way it looked and it was under the title of an amazon sword but looks nothing like any of the amazons I have atm.

Here is a pick of it. Could it be an umbrella sword?

Noticed it was a url and not image... So figured I'd fix that.

Sure, you get 2 points. The thing is there is only 1 prize, and that's for first prize. First prize is the one to identify it and they get a thank you for the prize. :P

Well, ...possibly...

Juvenile leaves of the submersed form of the cultivar Echinodorus "Rose" are rose-coloured, with or without reddish spots, turning light to dark green as they mature. If that is evident [no juvenile leaves appear in the photo presumably], the plant might then be E. "rose."

And to satisfy my curiosity, what is an "umbrella" sword?

Tbh, i am unsure. I couldn't find anything on them though some of the plants i saw through google images (while I was attempting to find out what it was in vain) were marked umbrella sword.

I Purchased one of those at PetSmart a couple years ago and it turned out to be a nice plant. (Umbrella Sword) Grew to about 20" and had some nice lush green leaves. Seemed a bit more slinder in the leaves than the other sword plants.

I assume you did not have a scientific name. Have you any photos to post so we can perhaps pin this down? I'm wondering if it is an Echinodorus at all, or some other plant unrelated. The use of common names like "sword" is of little use here, and I have never come across any Echinodorus under "umbrella" as a common name.
