overviewThe Brazilian Sword, a Rosette Plant, is from Tropical America and may grow to a height of 16 inches. The Spathiphyllum tasson's petiole is larger than its blade, which is ornamented by well-elevated veins. A member of the Araceae family, this plant requires water temperatures of 73°-83°F.
The Brazilian Sword prefers a neutral pH, with a pH range of 6.5-7.0 being best. It is an amphibious plant that will grow either fully or partially submersed. Provide at least 3 watts per gallon of full spectrum light (5000-7000K).
The Brazilian Sword grows extremely slow. To keep this plant from overgrowing the aquarium, simply cut back the tall leaves. This plant will add interest to your aquarium. Young plants may be obtained by cutting the rhizome.
