Aqua L'amour First Impressions

"Great for tall aquariums!"

One month after first dry starting my tank. I stuck the other pack in freezer dont think ill need anytime soon. This allowed the seeds to disperse. After that it seemed to grow right before my eyes. Has not grown, has not died, it is just there. So took it out and trimmed most of the leaves off and left a couple on each stem. Such a wonderful and easy way to add whimsy to a tank.

Aqua L'amour Final Thoughts

"My fish love them."

Java Fern and Vallisneria, two of the easiest plants to have. Plants came in healthy and the instructions were clear on how to care for them. They floated for a really long time and eventually migrated together. I just wanted to update this almost 7 months later. It's really cute and I have plenty of seed left over to play in other places. They still floated around for a bit but eventually settled to the bottom evenly. I feel a little goes a long way too, so these two packages would plant a TON.

"Absolutely recommended!"

You can see my cory is obsessed with it. I posted new pictures to show the growth but I did move some plants around. I haven't noticed any snails either could help that the plants arrived fairly dry. Telanthera, man oh man did I really like this. Plants arrived in a clear sealed bag. It's part of it so do the dry start method. DO NOT BUY unless you have an established quarantine tank, and quarantine them first.

Mainam U202 Final Thoughts

"Love Them!"

The plants picture is now, almost 7 months after I received it. In my low tech tank it grows slowly enough that it would be easy to control. The Java fern has a ton of little baby java ferns on it now. A lot of information online, came with 5-6 stems and healthy. I did a dry start and followed the instructions as directed very meticulously. But I decide to keep it and put it in my fish tank. It's just not available in local pet shops.

"Happy with my purchase."

Altlandsberg Sword, very beautiful plant. Altlandsberg Sword, very beautiful plant. Java fern is doing ok, it is still getting used to the tank. The moss is covering up the wires so you can no longer see them. Of course it's just a twisted clump of it now. Java Fern and Vallisneria, two of the easiest plants to have. I'm ok with this since I have 3 assassin snails.

All are very healthy for having been in the mail. Telanthera, man oh man did I really like this. EVERY SINGLE seed germinated and grew into a plant. Altlandsberg Sword, very beautiful plant. It's not sticky once it sprouted, on day 2 for me. I will update again on the status of the plant customer service was also great! But it's not a brilliant green but any stretch of the imagination.

Aquarium Pet First Impressions

"Great seeds!"

I received it healthy and in great shape. But Java fern is suppose to grow fast so I am excited. Before you buy, do some research on the plants you will receive. I did trim some of the plants back to remove old leaves so only new ones are left. I don't know if after the ParaGard treatment if I should treat it in an algaecide. The plants arrived in Hawaii from California within 48 hours and looked amazing. One month after first dry starting my tank.

"I like the snails."

A bit smaller than advertised but they'll grow. Really perfect for my first tank plant. Was able to get 2 babies off of the stem already. I would note they did not come with any instructions. After a good month in my aquarium, the brown dried sections did not improve. But over all really lovely plants extremely happy. Roots were already growing so planted in the tank.

Hygrophila Araguaya, arrived with 5-6 stems with a weight. However this is not the plants themselves fault. This is day 1& 2 Will post an update over time. My fish and I are very happy with this purchase. It's not sticky once it sprouted, on day 2 for me. It even stuck to the corys who had to brush against a rock to get it off. In my low tech tank it grows slowly enough that it would be easy to control.

Copper is toxic to inverts like snails and shrimp. The plants are awesome and I got way more than I was expecting. Some leaves came off but overall it is doing very well.

I posted before and after pictures of both aquariums. Telanthera, man oh man did I really like this. I stuck the other pack in freezer dont think ill need anytime soon. But on the marimo moss balls and even some of teh hardscape it was attached to. I made a light wire webbing out of light weight wire.

This time to add variety I ordered the FL bundle, and am once again glad I did. But it's not a brilliant green but any stretch of the imagination.

Make sure you have a cleared area to plant. I just wanted to update this almost 7 months later. Placed in the tank and after a week leaves started to turn to mush. My fish and I are very happy with this purchase. Doing great so far and placed a fert tab in the gravel. Of course it's just a twisted clump of it now. Such a wonderful and easy way to add whimsy to a tank.

Cut all leaves but 3 of them and its doing better, see some new growth this morning. Hygrophila Araguaya, arrived with 5-6 stems with a weight. It seems hit or miss but the second time around I am very satisfied. You can see my cory is obsessed with it. I felt like this was a great price for this plant. It's not brow either, just a brownish green if that's possible. Picture shows my new plants actually coating my old plants.
