    Great Plant

    Posted by Lisa Pierson on Apr 30th 2016

    This was my first time (of many) with this company. I ordered several different types of plants along with a few other things. This plant is the nicest anubias I have ever gotten. The root structure is longer than I've ever seen on a new Anubias, just lovely. All of the plants are beautiful as are everything else. I can see I'll certainly be a frequent flyer with these NICE folk. Thanks much!

    Good purchase

    At first I was a little disappointed at how small the plant was when I received it. Fast forward to several months later, and I'm really impressed at how much it has flourished in my tank. It is a hardy and beautiful plant that has been sprouting leaves as fast as it possibly can. It looks great attached to my drift wood. I am really impressed!

    Small but healthy

    Posted by Ross on Aug 22nd 2012

    The plants I received were quite small, but have beautiful, dark green foliage and are already sprouting new leaves within a week. The look great growing on and near the drift wood I have in my tank. Very pretty and tough little plant!

    Lovely growing on driftwood

    The anubias came with wonderful, healthy roots. I had to trim them in order to slip the anubias into the hole drilled in the driftwood. The first driftwood I ordered arrived as a beautiful, sort of dainty looking piece, with holes in it that made it look sort of lacy. Really attractive. The second piece was vastly bigger and beautiful in a more rugged... is that the word... rugged... anyway, it was a little large to set on the bottom of my 25 gal tank, so I put it in standing up, with the anubias rather high up. It looks dynamite. I am so eager for the next week and a half to go by so I can put my goldfish into their new home. I think they are going to love it. I just hope the plants are rooted well enough to withstand the nibbling tug of 11 year old goldfish.
