    I recently got 3 Tropica Swords - Echinodorus parviflorus var tropica.
    After one week all leaves on swords turned yellow and died. I’ve never seen something like the before. All other plants are doing fine but those tropica swords. There’s more. The swords came with spreading runners and all runners are green and doing just fine.
    Have anyone had a similar experience with this kind of plant? Is there any chance they’d grow leaves?

    I have one of those that survived a three week delivery snafu. It had obvious living roots when I got it, but leaves in bad shape, and a runner with an almost ready plantlet on it. I planted it, pruned off the worst leaves, and it is still working at growing. It isn't a fast grower anyway, but at least it lives. The plantlet is now separated and planted, and it, too is doing well. So, I suggest pruning most of the worst leaves, planting it and crossing your fingers.
