    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.

    Micro Sword

    Posted by Unknown on Jan 6th 2011

    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.
