Question on Red Melon Sword.

So I got one of these in 29g tank. I put it in the back right corner since I thought swords get pretty tall. Most of it's new leafs only seem to be about 3 inches long.

Do these plants grow larger, or should I not have put it in the back?

I thought swords grew large, but not sure about this particular species.


"He situates himself in relation to time. He takes his place in it. He admits that he stands at a certain point on a curve that he acknowledges having to travel to its end. He belongs to time, and by the horror that seizes him, he recognizes his worst enemy. Tomorrow, he was longing for tomorrow, whereas everything in him ought to reject it."

It's considered a mid-ground to background plant so I wouldn't want to place it in the front. I'd leave it where it is if I were in your shoes... but be patient bc it's a slow-growing plant.
