    So So

    they are ok as weights go but too wide for my taste. Trying to use them on small chunks of dwarf hairgrass was hopeless. Half of the plants I used them on are already floating. If I could find a way to cut them in half lengthwise I'd be happy.

    Better plant weights

    I recently bought a pack of plant weights from you and they have been much easier to work with because yours are so much more flexible. The other plant weights of equal weight are hard to get wrapped around the plant's stalk. They are much thicker and hard to bend without damaging the stalk. Your weights are thinner and can be easily wrapped around the stalk 2-3 times without crushing it. They also protect the stalk better as I push them deep into the substrate when planting. They are also easier to shape when used in other applications
