    I was a bit wary at first because I have not heard of this company, but I decided to order them from this site since they had the most stock and better prices. I didn’t realize that they always ship out on Tuesday and Wednesday, so I thought the shipping was taking forever - but it was actually very very fast once it was shipped out. I bought an ice pack and it was actually melted by the time it came! I guess it did the job! The Amazon sword plant was beautiful and plentiful and healthy. They hardly melted during shipping. They add so much nature to my tank! Will definitely order more.

    I placed my first order from AP the other day. Part of order were 3 Amazon Swords. I am really impressed. These are the healthiest looking A Swords I have ever seen. Each one has around 8 to 10 leaves that are around 10 inches tall. You guys have made a new customer. Thanks
