Default Trimming Amazon Swords

Hello,

I need some expert advice on the best way to trim amazon swords. Mine are
groing like crazy, they are so big they grow along the water surface for
several inches blocking out the light to plants underneith. I have been
simply cutting them straight across with sizors. Does not look that good, is
there any other method ?

Hi Carmine
I usualy pull the outer circle of leafs of at the root-crown monthly. That
will prevent them from becomming to long. Sometime I have to increase the
trimming frequency when they grow faster than usual.
When I've neglected to prune at the nessesary times I've had some grow to 28"
in a 90 gal. highboy. I hope this helps,
If you need further help please email me direct cause I dont always have time
to check this forum Regards ART
