      Very fast delivery ,plants were ok and green.


      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.


      I ordered this along with several other plant varieties, but had read how fast it grows. So I thought I’d just get one bunch rather than the buy 2 get 1 free. It is true, it is already growing quite rapidly and I had to trim all the original pieces today and replant the cuttings. That’s exactly what I was going for. At this rate, I’ll have enough for my other aquariums soon! Highly recommended.


      These are so healthy, and a great filter plant! My Axolotl loves the shade!
