2 day shipping (took the minimum amount of days to ship), packaging was great, and plants came in looking good.
This is one portion cup of S. Repens. I received it 17 days ago, and it's already reached the top of my container and can be trimmed. S. Repens purchased from Chain Pet store, has been "growing" for several months and is still the same size as when I purchased it. Same exact conditions, but the APF are 3 times as big already.
All plants were healthy with well developed roots. Shipping was quick, customer service was outstanding. Look forward to doing more business in the future. Don't waste your time going anywhere else, Buy these!!!
The plants I received are very healthy and in great condition. They are robust and green with no melt.
I ordered a cup of S Repens tissue culture from APF a few weeks back and now having used tissue cultures I wish I had started using them years ago. I've had bad experiences in the past with plants introducing nasty pests and aggressively growing algae into tanks, and not having to worry about that took so much of the stress out of adding new plants. With the tissue culture it was as simple as planting the S Repens and watching them grow into beautiful healthy plants. The S Repens themselves arrived in great condition (I say this because it was during the winter time and I was a bit worried about the cold weather being an issue during shipping) and did not have any melting at all, in fact when I added them in the leaves were kind of folded down but by the next day they had visibly perked with the leaves extended to absorb the light. I love the way these plants look and I've already ordered another tissue culture from APF. I highly recommend both Aquarium Plants Factory and Staurogyne Repens.
