This is my first time ordering plants so I wasn’t quite sure what the culture cup was. Last time I will ever order a culture cup because the gel that was on the roots is impossible to get off and they were impossible to keep in the gravel because they had very small roots. I fought with it for over an hour and then just gave up. Hopefully it will still grow and do well and fill in despite all of the roots not being completely down in the gravel. And hopefully they stay put and don’t keep floating out.
it's doing good so far... No melt!!
