Echinodorus Martii was also known as Ruffled Amazon Sword or Echinodorus Major. Ruffled Amazon Sword is a beautiful sword plant that provides a very distinct contrast to other members of the genus and is ideal as a background or corner plant in a larger aquarium. Ruffle sword plants can grow rather huge, so they need to be pruned regularly. They can be great plants for large size tanks and will grow either submersed or emersed.
