The Amazon Sword grows rather big and can exceed 40 cm in height. It is therefore often used as a centre or focal plant in aquariums. The plant consists of lanceolate arched leaves that are about 2-3 cm wide. The leaf coloration is light green and you can see five veins that extend from the base to the tip of each leaf.
Amazon Swords should ideally be planted in a medium fine gravel bed. Like most of its close relatives in the genus Echinodorus, it can grow out of the water and is therefore a great choice for an open aquarium. It will however do fine completely submersed too. In the wild, you can often see Amazon Swords growing in boggy environments.
