BEST online plant store

First time buying live plants online, couldn’t be more happy.
All Plants came extremely healthy (except for a couple leaves) , fast shipping, good price for the quality. Wouldn’t want to get any plants elsewhere.


This was my first time ordering from APF and I already feel like a loyal customer. The plants I received were in perfect condition!

Adorable aquarium plant!

Arrived in beautiful condition, easy to plant in sand.

Small crypt

This plant can be frustrating to try to get a hold of (its a slow grower), but I would say it is worth the wait. The leaves came in smaller than I was expecting but I believe that is partly due to these being culture tissue starters. These are my first crypts and I wanted to see what kind of crypt melt I would get. I waited a week after planting to review, and they seem to be doing great. There were a few yellow leaves to prune upon arrival, and maybe one per day or every other day (with 3 cups of tissue culture in the tank). I can see a few leaves starting to get lengthy so they have grown since getting planted in the tank.

Excellent quality

These TC cups were beautiful specimens full of plantlets and I ended up having more than enough for my intended purpose. Because of that, I ended up adjusting my aquascape to accomodate for more of this plant. Will absolutely order again. In fact, I tried to, not even 1 week later, and they were sold out.

LOTS of plants

Was debating on getting an extra cup for my carpet. Glad I didn't! Two cups was almost to much! There were so many beautiful plants in there! Still can't believe how healthy they were. Ordered some shrimp from them because I was so impressed!
