Beautiful Sword
I have ordered from PAC many times and each time I am sent such great plants. The Amazon Sword showed up over 16 inches tall and as green as can be with new leaves forming. I am always surprised how healthy the plants are from PAC. Thank you. You can tell you take great care in your product.

Great looking plant, only complaint is the tallest leafs stem was broken so had to trim it, now there's a gap in the plant. Still recommend.
