I have had more problems with swords than any other plant and replaced them with new healthy ones 3 times.

Iron tabs and laterite in the substrate, Flourish in the water and they continue to always have brown algae and always have weak, thin leaves. So, I add a bit more iron thinking that is their problem. I cut off the bad leaves but never seem to get new ones or runners.

Now, to add to the never ending brown algae I clean off constantly, the tips are getting the fuzzy black algae. I'm about ready to give up the swords and go with all vals!
