    It's only been a week and a half so far so good I have it in a 10 gallon aquarium with the temperature setting at 78 degrees it seems like it's growing a stem which would eventually become a new plant

    These plants shipped in excellent packaging and came in perfect condition. They’re healthy and thriving in my tank. Will definitely be ordering from here again.

    This little Amazon is by far the best looking of all my Amazons. Took to re-planting much better than his big bros !

    Wonderful plants

    Posted by Stacey on Aug 22nd 2014

    I ordered these for the mid-ground and the ones I received are already more than 4 inches, so I think they'll work fine. Healthy well developed plants. Very satisfied.

    Small but hardy.

    These have suffered a great Pleco beating, but are still trying to soldier on. They are smaller than I expected as well topping out at 3 to 4 inches. And they came with snails.
