20ml Tropica Plant Nutrition fertiliser per week. No CO2. Lights are standard bulbs that came with the Interpet Fishpod 120, they're two day bulbs at 15W each, plus four small, cheap, stick-on LED strips (not an aquarium brand). It probably gives 1.5W per gallon, but I've noticed vastly improved growth since getting the stick-on LEDs. Maybe it widened the spectrum. I don't know. I use 7ml of EasyCarbo per day (a.m. dose). Lights are on for no more than 10hrs.
Halfway through the week I dose 5ml potassium and 2ml phosphates.

Strange indeed really ,as I never had a problem with them growing out of the tank, and 40 plus leaves on the Red Rubin's.

My first sword I had in a 10g tank with gravel and a stock light fixture (2 bulbs that screwed in). Just added a fertilizer tablet near its roots and that seemed to do the trick, grew rather well in the tank.
