      Update after 7 months

      Plants came in great! I had no experience with plants before this, and wanted to share my experience. I'm growing on pure eco-complete with no heater (~70-75F) in really hard water, pH 8, low/medium light. Plants doing great, some growth, no complaints!

      BUT just as an FYI/point of comparison for anyone else with similar conditions, COMPARED to the green crypts -- which I got from this company too at the exact same time & kept in exact same conditions -- the "brown" have grown WAY more slowly. See side-by-side comparison in photos. The greens have grown about 3-4x the amount, and in a different part of the tank have so far exceeded the "brown" growth that you can't even see the brown anymore even though I started with more "brown" plants. So far I've given each plant probably 0.5 root tabs total, a little water column fertilizer in a relatively understocked 20g high tank of 14 endler males + 1 bristlenose, and that's it. I believe that the darker crypts will thrive better if I had better lighting conditions, as that is the case with most plants, whether aqueous or not!! Just keep this in mind if you can't decide between types or if you're looking for faster growth!

      APF made good. My last order didnt quite meet my approval....

      matter of fact the Crypts looked pretty bad. I contacted APF with my concerns and explained what I was dissatisfied with.
      After a few emails back and forth, I was notified that three new Crypts would be sent to me on Monday.

      They arrived in excellent condition thanks to the way they pack them and the Crypts looked 100% better than my initial order did. APF has been my go-to vendor for live aquatic plants and after the way they stepped up to the plate and made good I cant see shopping elsewhere.

      Much obliged to everyone associated with APF for being such an honorable and upstanding company.
