I wasn’t sure out of the bag as some of the stems looked super wilted, but any brown pieces quickly rinsed off, and upon putting them in the tank, the rest look very full and lively. Lost a couple green leaves during rinsing, but planted them in the tank as well since this propagates so easily. Would definitely order again. As some reviews noted, this was super light green, but I think it looks great as a contrast in the tank.
The Hygrophila Difformis had many broken stems and it was pale green, almost yellow, but after 4 days in my tank, I think it may perk up. I sure hope so. It was better than the crypts I bought in the same order (they were pretty pitiful). First time ordering from this vendor, but probably won't order again. There are much better prices out there. And the extra $9.99 I paid for expedited shipping was wasted. Four days is not expedited shipping to me.
Healthy and beautiful plant as received
I really love these! They are a little bit of a lighter green than I expected, but very beautiful! Slightly younger than I envisioned as well, but perfectly healthy! Mine look just like the first image given.
Will buy more.
All plants came healthy...my favorite go site for aquarium plants.
