I purchased a single piece to get an idea of the size and quality of the plants/wood. This is going into a 55 gallon all natural planted tank. I must say the reviews for these are pretty spot on. The baby tears arrived vibrant and healthy. The driftwood size was just large enough to cover the 380gph pump used for the aquaponics which is what I needed. Very Satisfied!!!
I was honestly surprised to receive a nice size piece of drift wood covered from tip to stern in baby tears. I had a hard time deciding the best place to put it in my tank, set it up, lay it flat, etc, as it is perfect size for a center piece for a 10-30 gallon tank.
WOW, absolutely all I can say. I anticipated a miniscule sized piece of driftwood to be sent. I got two pieces, both easily a foot in length and with a lush patch or patches of baby tears. The driftwood piece alone would cost me $30-40 at my local pet store. With the baby tears, this is at an absolute steal of a price!!
The baby tears arrived looking extremely healthy and beautiful. It was with sheer joy and I put them in my aquarium.
Here it is, a little over a month, and the baby tears are losing their grip on the rock and some of the driftwood. I hope it's something I'm screwing up and not the nature of thise plant. It's beautiful and I want to use it throughout my aquariums.
Great price! beautifully planted and extremely healthy. been in the tanks two weeks is growing nicely.
