    Came with snail eggs. Hopefully I got them all before they hatch. The plant accurately represented in the photo, no surprise there. Looking forward to it thriving.

    Some one had the munchies

    I knew this was going to be small so I ordered 2. Attached them to a nice piece of wood and the next day it had been picked to pieces! I gathered as many pieces as I could, put them in their cup and it's floating on top to hopefully regenerate. This was very pretty and I hope it survives

    Great little plant

    I ordered one of these last year, and have it in my Krib tank. Thought for sure they'd destroy it, but it is very happily growing. It is a slow grower and I did have it attached to a piece of driftwood but it detached and has been slowly moving around the tank with no ill effects. Nice color and very healthy. I will be ordering a few more in future. RECOMMENDED!

    ordered two. roots are very healthy, but I had to cut half the leaves off due to hair algae on them. other than that, excellent condition.
