        Great quality plants

        Plants landed today and look to be in great shape. They're part of my total replant following a massive post-heat wave meltdown. I've never seen anything like it. Only remaining material from before are Crypt roots (which are all sprouting new plants.. Massive wall of Vals and carpet of Crypts completely collapsed. Big algae bloom resulted. Your Java Ferns, Vals, Bucephalandra, and tiny Anubias plants are all in. The one "mix variety" Bucephalandra drift wood piece wants to float, but partial burying is keeping it down. Combined with some LFS stem plants, hoping this will be a stable recovery. Thanks!

        Very clean, healthy, green plants. They deliver on the advertised 6+ leaves; although, I was surprised this meant those leaves were provided as many small pieces of rhizome in a package. This worked out fine since I was able to glue them to small pieces of lava rock to place in my aquarium.

        Very stiff and vibrant plants. Big pack is well worth it

        Doing great

        They came in healthy and are doing great in my tanks.

        Packaging , quality of service, everything was GREAT. Snail free plants. Although I dipped them in peroxide beforehand as a safety precaution. Overall I’m extremely satisfied with my purchase. I will definitely buy more in the future

        Very clean, healthy, green plants. I haven’t seen any sign of snails or other pests. The portion provided is generous for the price. I’m a complete beginner with aquarium plants and was looking for easy to grow plants. These seem to fill the bill. My only critique is the description says, sold as potted plant. Indeed it was potted, but consisted of many small pieces of rhizome wrapped together to give the appearance of a larger plant. I actually found this to work out fine and glued them to small pieces of lava rock to place in my aquarium. Some larger pieces were fine individually, other smaller ones, I used several pieces on the same rock. No melt or problems at all.
