I received this as a third in a group of four plants that I bought and shipped mid-winter to me in Minnesota, something I typically don't do. I couldn't resist, not only the price but the varieties that were available. Well, I watched the tracking and expected some major damage due to winter travel. But they arrived in perfect condition, gently packed in a well insulated box. And the Pogostemon? The cup was full of plantlets, I mean thick! They were grouped into 5 really nice clumps, from which the original tissue was started. Not much for a root system to speak of, but had the beginnings of them and I wasn't too worried when I examined them. I kept them in the original clumps but divided off a few into smaller clumps so they weren't too crowded together. A week has gone by and they still look really good with a little melting occurring so far. Can't wait to see them get acclimated and start growing. Overall, I am pleased as punch with this purchase and would do it agin in a heartbeat! Thanks APF!
Quantity was more than other places. Plants were healthy. Couldn't ask for a better quality. Will definitely buy from here again.
Plants arrived surprisingly green and healthy on a 19 degree day!
What you see is what you get. My Pogostemon erectus looked exactly like the photo and all the growth was healthy and fresh. After cleaning it and breaking it apart I got at least 15 little stems to plant (some quite small but substantial enough to plant). Kind of bummed this was the only plant I had ordered from Aquarium Plants Factory for my build. It was just the one last plant I needed. Had I known how good the quality was going to be I would have ordered more and I definitely will in the future.
