    Best plants

    I was worried at first since I’ve had some trouble with live plants, but everything I’ve ordered has flourished. They arrived quickly and sprouted leaves soon after planting.

    Best source

    I have had consistent quality with every order. My fish are big jerks that treat plants like toys in an underwater rugby game...these bulbs take a beating and regenerate every time.

    They are bulbs.Hard to tell,until they start to grow.The mail sucks right now.It took 10 days to get here.Exposed to cold temps.I am quarantining the plants.Lightly fertilizing and hoping for the best.

    Great plants, Great service

    beautifully packaged and protected from the weather, and since they came pre-sprouted I had no trouble getting them started in my tanks. They're growing exceptionally fast and I'd go as far as to say that they are prettier than the picture. Overall fantastic product and a fantastic company.

    Arrived as described. Healthy and had a little sprout already growing.

    Very satisfied

    Bought it and it arrive already sprouting stems and within a week I already have a few baby leaves sprouting out. I planted it about as wrong as anyone could and it has still sprouted
