These are fast growing if the conditions are correct. All plants need proper lighting and suitable nutrient levels to grow.
I would suggest doing some reading to be sure your tank situation is optimal for live plants. I'd also be sure that you are not keeping vegetarian fish, and if you are, to be selective on the live plants you work with. Some are heartier than others.
One name I didn't see listed above that's also easy is Anubias.
well swords will grow in any tank, i am talking about the common one you see being sold in bunches- i would prefer something with a nicer shade of green like java fern it does well in most tanks and its not that fussy- give it a great home and its one of the best plants you can buy- simply beautiful when matured.
I've never seen swords sold in bunches... they are a rooted plant. Are you sure it's a sword? There are many pretty shades of green, and while java fern is one of them, it is only one option. Sword plants tend to need a lot more light than some of the other plants, and if there are plecos in the tank, swords are usually the first plants eaten.
