The plants arrived very well packed and the ice pack I bought to put in with them (worth it) was still cold. They are thriving in my two aquariums, and are plenty of plants for the money. The only criticism I have is I tried three times to get ahold of someone to ask when my plants would ship, and vm was always full, and no one answered my email. So...great plants, but need to work on their communication.
Beautiful healthy stalks received. Growing great in my tank and look wonderful planted along the back of my tank.
I only ordered 1 bunch and should have got 2 or 3. I received 6 stems at about 6in long. In two weeks they grown at least another 3 inches. I love the way the stems twist and curve. Great for frontline on the sides of the tank for a different texture.
I ordered two bunches of this plant and received about 16 6" plants. They were all healthy and began growing very quickly. I divided and replanted several of them within two weeks. The stem is rather flimsy, and I planted it deeply to keep it in the substrate. It is a very pretty plant with a light green color. I have it in a slanted avenue mid tank mixed with Mexican oak leaf. The round leaves are a very nice contrast, as is the somewhat curvy stem. It is not real showy or remarkable, but it does look pretty and grows very fast. The tank is 75 gallons with soft, acidic water at around 70 degrees. It has four T8s with bulbs at 500K and 6500K. I dose twice weekly with Flourish and every other day with Excel. There is no CO2 system.
The bunch I received didn't look that great and hasn't shown much in the way of recovery. There has been some leaf loss, but it hasn't only been moderate and appears to be only the damaged leaves from shipping. However, the plant looks as though it will be very pretty once it recovers.
Arrived very lush and in great shape. I forgot it's a bunched plant (no roots), so I basically stuck the bunch (approx. 8 inches tall) into Aquariumplant's great substrate and attached to side of tank with suction cup ring. Opens up immediately and 'spruces' out some within a day. It hasn't been a week and there are 'root shoots' (rhizome) dangling down. This compliments the tank well for mid to background height. "Instant Gratification" type of plant. Thank You Aquariumplants!! [29G twin T8 8000K+6500K]
