Description

This sword is a fairly new plant hybrid. Its bright green and red leaves are "dusted" and with white speckling, making it an absolutely lovely plant that can be a very distinctive part of the aquascape. It can even thrive in low-tech setups with moderate to high lighting and nutrient-rich substrate.

 
Caring for this unique sword is simple. Rose Sparkle sword will benefit from CO2 supplementation, but it does not require it. While it will thrive in high lighting, it is also very durable and can do very well under moderate lighting. It will require nutrient-rich substrate for its extensive root structure so nutrients would be beneficial. It is certainly only suitable for background placement in smaller aquariums, but it can also be placed in the middle ground of larger aquariums. Rose Sparkle Sword reproduces through rhizome division as well as by the production of side shoots, which can be removed and replanted.
It is very intolerant of copper, so please keep this in mind if you use tap water in your aquarium.

Rose Sparkle Sword is a member of the plant group known as Rosettes, which are known for their extremely short stem axis and for the way their leaves grow upward from the base of the plant. This plant can grow up to 24 inches in height with the proper lighting and water quality.
