        Hairgrass "mini"

        Received three clumps. One was green and vibrant and was able to use 100%. One very pale was able to use about 50%, the third in between.

        So far they r doing great arrived in great shape they r only 2 weeks old keeping fingers crossed they r so cute

        Great plants, but don't try to grow them on coarse substrate!!!

        Came in really green & healthy looking, and a great deal! But I am a newbie and only have eco-complete and it was SUPER hard to plant them & keep them in the substrate. They started both dying massively by browning and also with long flyaway strings coming out of the substrate, as you can see in photos. By several months in, I had to remove to avoid ammonia in my tank water, and so I don't have them any more :( Only go for them if you have sandy or fine cap to your substrate!!! Perhaps they should add a warning to this effect in description. If you do have that, then I imagine they would probably thrive as other people have found!

        Dwarf hair grass

        Arrived in good shape after a 6 day shipment. I expect they will do ok.

        So far so good


        Great product

        They arrived safe and secure. They look great in my tank and are doing well. They arrived healthy and for the price, they were a steal. I will definitely be buying from APF again.
