All the plants I ordered came in vibrant with deep color
Arrived healthy and doing well
Good 8" tall great root system very healthy.
I ordered two pots of swords and they were both in great shape when I received them. The plants were healthy green and had great root systems. The only down side was that I found several snails on the pot, and they must have laid some eggs because I found some tiny baby snails in my aquarium.
I recieved my plants today, some ten different species for my jungle tank, and all of them with the exception of the micro sword and oak leaf were in fabulous condition. the sword is pale, sickly, and sports numerous yellowed leaves-most of which i removed due to rot. the root system, however, was spectacular, so I am attempting to nurse it back to health.
