    Great Plant

    The Hornwort arrived well packaged and perked right up, when planted in my tank. I also bought the Malaysian driftwood with hole to anchor the Hornwort in my gravel substrate. Worked great!

    I want them to work…

    Since they don’t take root, and easily snaps, most of the 3 bundles (buy2get1) ended up getting tossed. I tried planting them, but by the next hour they were floating. I tried anchoring them by tying them down or super gluing them to weights/decorations, they ended up snapping apart, and again floating at the top. And with them floating around food got caught around them and their pines just ended up falling off. I tossed more than half away because they ended up just stems! I still have a couple in a cup of aquarium water. Idk what to do with them, but I don’t want to just toss them away either. I want them to work!!

    I recently purchased hornwort for my aquariums. They arrived as promised, were well packaged. They were in very good shape and healthy. I rinsed and checked them for mites and snails, they were clean but to be sure I soaked them in water in a large class bowl for a couple days and checked them again before putting them in the tanks I had no problem at all with the plants. The fish seemed to enjoy it and makes the tanks look pretty. I do think I made a mistake by not buying 2 and getting 1free, I was afraid there would be too much. I will buy again from The Plant Factory.

    I was scared buying from places I didn’t know and wanted quality plants, but I loved this purchase! I thought it was worth every penny. I got the buy 2 get 1 free and was surprise at how many bunches I got per. I’m definitely buying more from here in the future!

    Generous quantity, but came with water mite and snails

    All plants arrived in great condition, nicely packed individually. However, the hornwort came with little black bugs that look like ticks or mites (possibly water mites after googling). I had to put the hornwort in a separate container, inspect every single leave for mites, then run them under tap water before putting them into my tank. Also found a tiny snail that came off the hornwort. Hopefully nothing else is on it, fingers crossed.
