    Stunned by the Quality

    I’ve ordered quite a few plants, and I’ve bought plenty locally. I was fully expecting to receive a decent few bunches, some browning, mild damage, things I get every time I buy. I was absolutely blown away by the big, hearty, gorgeous bunches I received. All the plants I ordered came in flawless, but the pennywort just came so extra lovely. I’m so impressed, that I’ll definitely be buying from here again.

    Love it

    Super healthy plant up delivery. Not sure where its going permanently, so I just dropped it into my tank as it came with the plant anchor. Day 3 and new growth already!

    It's huge

    1 month update: Whatever it is, it looks like hydrocotyle verticillata but the stems are about 1/8 inch thick and it grows 1-2inch big leaves that reach the top of my 22 inch deep aquarium. Definitely not the 1-3 inch tall plant I expected. It looks alright though, i guess. Like big dr seus umbrellas. lol

    Healthy and huge

    "one portion" wound up being like 10 individual rhizome sections with a big old emergent leaf on each.

    The rhizomes were easy to plant, and the emergent leaves are not melting---they're pearling! All of the rhizomes have already grown new submerged leaves.

    It looks super cool. One of my favorites and growing like a weed within 1 week.

    Came healthy

    Waited a week to see progress. Placed semi-emerged in my overflow, they are really taking off with new leaves from several different nodes
