brazilian sword
 
My LFS is selling these and says they do well submersed. I be crazy and skeptical never take anyone selling me something for face value simply because they are their to make money. So with the forums collective experience what do you have to say about this particualy plant. i figured it was some kind of amazon sword sub-species but i could be wrong.

No, they are not true aquarium plants and will not last.

I believe their scientific name is Spathiphyllum tasson so not the same as an Amazon Sword, but close in appearance.

Grrr it looked so nice =/ o well. I guess I'll keep looking for an amazon sword since my LFS is trying to sell these.

I learned something from this. I don't believe I have ever seen a plant called "Brazilian Sword" by that name, and I would have assumed it was an Echinodorus, which it is not. Now I know better.:-D

Only goes to show, we never stop learning.:lol:
