    Beautiful color

    Plants arrived quickly and in perfect condition. The bulb that came had already sprouted and, within only a month, has really taken off. It is a stunning plant that adds so much color to the tank. I will definitely be buying more of these plants in the future. Highly recommended for beginners looking for some color in their tank.

    Lovely! Wish my tank was larger!

    I bought the bulb sprouted with leaves since this is my first planted tank and wanted instant gratification. The plant came beautifully colored and already had 4-5 leaves on it! I planted it about halfway in the substrate. It’s been 4 days since receiving and I’ve already got lil baby leaves coming in that are the most beautiful magenta! I use a Finnex Ray 2 and am not supplementing with CO2 until next week when I get paid lol I wish my tank was larger so I could put more of these in there!

    Perfect as usual

    I have yet to order a plant that hasn't come in perfect condition! I ordered the buy 2 get 1 free deal and I could not be happier with the plants I received. After a week they are already showing some new growth. Small bulbs came with a few sprouted leaves each.

    Arrived nicely

    I bought the bulb only variation and after just a couple of days I'm starting to see the leaves come in. Hope they adapt well.

    Worth it.

    Plants arrived when expected, well packaged. Bulbs were in good shape, already sprouted and have already doubled in size these last two weeks. Very cool plant, nice colors!
