The Brazilian Sword, also known as Peace Lily, or Madona Lily is from Tropical America. This slow growing Rosette plant can obtain heights 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 range of 6.5-7.0 being best. It is not a true aquatic plant but will do extremely well in your terrarium. Provide at least 3 watts per gallon of full spectrum light (5000-7000K).

This plant will add interest to any terrarium. Young plants may be obtained by cutting the rhizome. To keep this plant from overgrowing the terrarium, simply cut back the tall leaves.
