I can barely believe how many tiny cryptocorne plants I was able to tease apart from this one little tissue culture cup. More than 40 plants! Shipping was prompt, and the greenery was lush. Five Stars.
Came in lush and beautiful, these were probably some of my favorite aquarium plants I’ve ever bought, and I’ve bought from several places online. These little guys have a lot of gel on the bottom that needs to be washed off (I used aquarium water), and their roots all seem to converge into a mat. I gave up trying to separate them and cut the bridges between each group of plantlets with a scissors, but realized afterwards the plants were tough enough to just be firmly and slowly pulled apart and their roots would follow. Mine are doing well even in my hard water and seem to be growing. I am excited to see them grow more (fingers crossed, root tabs, and liquid fertilizer ;) )
I received my tissue culture cup in about 5 days while in NC. The plants came in great shape and so far no melt back. Was able to separate the plants into about 8 big clumps. Will definitely buy from here again.
The size of this culture is much larger than the picture and comes with well over 100 individual plants, but i broke them up into 8 groups. I am very pleased with my order!
The cup was crammed full of very healthy plants that were well rooted. I divided it into 6 bunches and planted them yesterday. So far so good. It probably could have been separated into more groups for sure, but I thought if I left them in larger chunks they would be more likely to survive any crypt melt.
