Very nice sized plants but arrived DOA because of shipping problems...took a week to receive them (not the seller's fault). Super fast refund. I will definitely be ordering these again when the weather gets cooler and I would not hesitate to order from APF in the near future.
I was sent very large portions of Blyxa that were very healthy with no signs of melt. Blyxa can be difficult to get established in the beginning if you have Cories and SAE that like to pester everything, but these portions have been very resilient and don't mind being uprooted every day. As a result of receiving such large portions and my fish disturbing them, the 5 plants I ordered are now 10 or 12 healthy clumps that are starting to root. I am a repeat customer and will continue to support APF in the future.
The Blyxa Japonica arrived looking OK but rootless. I planted them in a flourishing 90 gallon tank that is well stocked with plants. However, within 3 days the foliage melted away and i don't know ifthey can come back without roots.
USPS lost them but APF answered my concerns quickly and gave me a full refund so I will try again when they are back in stock
I ended up not incorporating the Blyxa into my aquascape because the C. parva looked so fantastic that it inspired me to call an audible, and I switched things up at the last minute. I ended up putting the Blyxa in the compost heap. Still, they were healthy plants and packaged very well.
The plants came in all damaged and looking deadbeat even tho they cam express with the shrimp. Not happy.
