I do but I've never grown any of the larger ones. Echinodorus are very nutrient hungry and most will out grow even the biggest tank if not well kept. Just check Phillipe Olivia's old discus tank, at faao there's not a single leave inside the tank all stems!

anyone else like swords? :arghh:
I love them!

I currently have...

Echinodorus Barrthi (apprx 6" tall)
Echinodorus Oriental (apprx 2" tall)
and 3 different varieites of Echinodorus Rubra (between 3" and 5" tall)

These are the smallest swords I have found. All others have grown around 2ft tall eventually. Have not tried the two you mentioned. They are cultivars so you may find like I have many slightly different plants all with the same name. ll growing to slightly different sizes. I have had some Rubra in the past grow a foot tall for example.
