This plant was green, healthy and in good shape. It could have been a little fuller, but overall, great purchase.
Healthy plants in pots
Cheap, actually best price i found. Fast delivery good portion, more than i expected. But my only concern is that after i planted in the tank, my hanitants broke out with ick. I am not sure if you guys keep fish and plants together which may caused the spread of the parasite or maybe new fish i added along with plants may have carried it. But i am still satisfied overall, and will order more for my future tank as well.
For the price I expected far smaller bunches. They came large, full and very green. They’ve been planted for about a week at the time of this review and are growing gangbusters!
Arrived in great condition nice looking
There was a little browning but grass seems be growing very well. I have planted it in fine sand gravel. I see new roots growing.
My dwarf hairgrass arrived in a rather brown and somewhat slimy condition... even some of its roots were not so lovely looking. (there was a label on the shipping container that said, "DO NOT FREEZE"... so maybe it had frozen since the night temperatures were quite low.) However, the video I had watched a couple times on planting (the video with no talking because I don't think the man speaks English, but with great typed directions) said to trim the plants way down, and to also trim the roots. So, I trimmed. I planted tufts that were about a half inch high... using tweezers. They are all looking really good, bright green. I'm thinking they must be making lovely roots in the substrate. They look as if they must be. One of the tufts was pearling today... just minimally, but still ... little bubbles of oxygen.
