Have been trying to dry start a tank for months. This is my third try, and thankfully this attempt will take. The success is due to the quality of the tissue cultures I received from APF - just top quality, beautiful dwarf baby tears. I've tried all the usual suspects, APF is the real deal.
They looked fantastic, however I ordered this before and it was very nice portions but this time they were have the size when I first ordered them.
The Baby Tears came in very healthy and you receive a good amount in each cup. It's been a week in the tank and it still looks very healthy and looks to be taking off. I would definitely order baby tears from APF again.
Two generously sized cups of tissue culture DBTs arrived promptly and in perfect condition. Went straight into the tank. Looking and doing great. I look forward to getting more plants from APF in the future.
Purchased some baby dwarf tears, phoenix ferns and moss balls. Everything came packaged great and the plants were healthy when they arrived would trust these guys again.
Came nice and green good portion
