Was not happy when i recieved this plant. Seemed like it was crammed into the little container so when i opened it all the leaves were broke off and all i has was a stem
Got two plants. But one was long so cut it and replanted. New leaves are coming up. Both in fine sand and planted substrate. Love it !
Received this plant in great condition. It looks very good in my aquarium.
I ordered two portions of this. I recieved three tiny plant chunks, about the size of half a teaspoon. The tips were slightly brown despite overnight shipping. They look nothing like the photo. I ordered these from a company in AZ a couple years ago and they looked exactly like the photo and I got double the amount in ONE order. Unfortunately my pleco destroyed them so I had to move her and replace my plants.
I was skeptic about getting this plant at first but it is great and growing well! I ordered 3 portions of it because the description say's "small portions" but the portions were probably 3x larger than what I expected! I took the person below my review's advice and got the over-night shipping. I would definitely reccomend this, my plants were all flawless!
Do not use two day shipping for this it is too delicate. Mine came in looking a little rough and beat up then melted and died over the next week, everything else in my order is doing fine. I would spring for the next day air if you're ordering this plant.
