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. The leaves, slightly lighter green than the common Amazon sword, and the blade has wavy edges and one or two pairs of lighter-green veins that end above the base of the blade. The leaves generally grow more directly vertical than most of the other species in this genus and thus take up less horizontal space.
