A little brown at the roots, but hasn't died yet!

It wasn't as green as some of the other reviewers have said and was a little brown towards the roots, I'm suspecting from being tightly wrapped with lead anchors. BUT I have it planted now and it looks good so far, hopefully it bounces back!

Good grass!

Good portion, healthy plants.

Healthy hairgrass

It branches at the tips and spreads. Don't know if its my favorite plant because of that, but it's definitely healthy and strong growing!

Excellent quality

Came in excellent condition! Great packaging and handling!

Excellent quality

I ordered these to replace the plants from a previous purchase from a competitor, who had incorrectly sold E. montevidensis as E. vivipara, and I wasn't familiar enough with the Eleocharis species to know that I had been scammed. After some research, I realized what I had didn't look like what I had expected to see in the aquascape, and so I yanked it out and replaced it with this. I'm thankful that there are places like Aquarium Plants Factory who know the importance of properly identifying correct species and selling them as such. As to the plants themselves, they were extremely healthy bunches, properly rolled up in a manner that makes for easy separating and planting. Highly recommended.

Amazing quality

Everything I've bought from them exceeds expectations. The items were shipped the same day, well packed and arrived in perfect shape.
