    Sword Oriental

    Posted by Retired Navy on Oct 2nd 2021

    As a result of being more than pleased with all my previous orders. I wanted to add some variety! I am still learning about aquarium plants as I transition from artificial aquariums to planted. These plants came with long roots! They did not have snails or snail eggs. They were very healthy and strong. They are thriving in my aquarium and growing already! I am confident they will do just as well as my other orders. The package arrived on time, and (friendly customer service) professionally packaged. I love it! The best thing was they were affordable! The price I paid matched the size of the plant! I abhor buying things I have not physically seen because it's risky. But I have not been disappointed yet and I hope I never will be. As long as they keep treating me like this, I will remain loyal to them. All my large orders go through here!

    One of the best looking swords in my opinion. This was one of 3 different swords in my order and was not sure where I was going to put it. Decided to use as centerpiece and couldn't be happier. Such unique coloring!

    oriental sword

    Plant was taller and less colorful than I expected, probably because it was grown emersed. Adapting fast though, new leaves are pink. I'm hoping they don't grow as tall since I want this plant in the front.

    This is a beautiful and hardy sword. It is small enough to be in the foreground where you can fully appreciate the stunning pink-purple leaves.
