How to plant Echinodorus 'Rubin'

I am planning to get 1 tomorrow but I'm not sure how to plant them since I'm new with planted tanks and really want some reds at my tanks so any tips from experienced folks?

Like any sword, plant it with the roots in the substrate but the crown (where the leaves come out of it) above the substrate line. If you have inert substrate you should probably use root tabs.

+1 Matt; swords are very heavy feeders.
