    Strong Plant.

    Delivered in very good conditions, took about a week for growth to start picking up. She's in a 55 gallon goldfish tank and seems to be holding up well, more vertical growth than spread so far. No co2, but lights, liquid fertilizer and lots of messy goldfish are helping it slowly but surely carpet across the tank.

    Excellent way to ship them. Haven’t had them along enough to see how well they will grow.

    Mats were received thick and growing healthy.Had a problem keeping the mats from floating up from substrate.Using lead weights scattered on edges of mats finally worked well.Instant thick groundcover.Highly recommend.
