    Arrived in excellent condition. Plants were 7"-9" tall and healthy with good roots. Would definitely recommend.

    The day these poor things arrived it was 102 degrees with a heat index of 115. However, they weren't much fazed. Strong healthy leaves and stems, great coloring, and larger than expected! I planted them right away and they're doing great! Even putting out new leaves. And my large fantail goldfish doesn't seem interested in munching on them at all. Would definitely recommend this plant!
