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.

Planterest LS314 Final Thoughts

"They came very quickly."

They are doing great and growing very well. Of course it's just a twisted clump of it now. Placed in the tank and after a week leaves started to turn to mush. They floated for a really long time and eventually migrated together. However this is not the plants themselves fault. Roots were already growing so planted in the tank. Can see where a leaf has been plucked.

"They shipped well."

Would definitely recommend this product ESPECIALLY if you're new to aquatic plants. So took it out and trimmed most of the leaves off and left a couple on each stem. I eventually scooped the seeds out and gave up. Hygrophila Araguaya, arrived with 5-6 stems with a weight. I just wanted to see if it worked and it did. EVERY SINGLE seed germinated and grew into a plant. Very good quality plants at an amazing price, roots looked great.

"Gorgeous plants!"

I received the new package the next day and the plants were perfect. Put weight on it, which came with them, placed in tank. Red Melon Sword, arrived healthy and green. I really didn't think this was going to be a great buy. Overall i'm happy with the purchase. Copper is toxic to inverts like snails and shrimp. Altlandsberg Sword, very beautiful plant.

"I was happy for that!"

Attached are pictures and video from day one thru day 21. I would note they did not come with any instructions. Hygrophila Pinnatifida, this is the plant I wanted most of all. I planted them in planters for my betta to rest on and he loves them. But Java fern is suppose to grow fast so I am excited. And, it has survived pretty well considering I never give it nutrients. Seller even wrote a detailed page of instructions to care for the plants.

"Very very healthy plants."

I received it healthy and in great shape. It's not brow either, just a brownish green if that's possible. I got these to dry start a carpet in my new nano tank. The package is great, they are resealable. Plants came in healthy and the instructions were clear on how to care for them. I would note they did not come with any instructions. Hopefully, this will help set what you will experience as well.

This time to add variety I ordered the FL bundle, and am once again glad I did. Java Fern and Vallisneria, two of the easiest plants to have. Such a wonderful and easy way to add whimsy to a tank.

It's part of it so do the dry start method. But on the marimo moss balls and even some of teh hardscape it was attached to. All plants were healthy and in great condition.

Aquarium Plants Discounts First Impressions

"I attached a picture."

Just received my plants yesterday and I'm very happy with them. Overall, at the moment, I'm pleased with my purchase. I don't know if after the ParaGard treatment if I should treat it in an algaecide. It's not sticky once it sprouted, on day 2 for me. I know much thought was placed in picking these plants. I felt like this was a great price for this plant. It's alive and seems to be growing.

  • Water Lettuce - Floating Live Pond Plant
  • IMPORTANT: Please note that during times of extreme weather, live plants will suffer due to extreme temperatures. During winter, do not order live plants when temperatures are expected to go below 20F at the lowest point during the day. During summer, avoid ordering plants when temperatures are above 100F.
  • You get 1 plant of about 3-5 inches in diameter. These water lettuce and mature and ready to reproduce.
  • They serve as natural biofilters to your pond, helping clear the water naturally. Controls algae by absorbing nutrients from the water
  • Please note this plant ships with trimmed roots as sometimes they tend to fall off during transit due to heat. In case roots fall off upon receiving them, just place them in your pond and give them couple of weeks so they can re-establish themselves. If you live in areas experiencing above 90 temperatures, please make sure these plants are retrieved as soon as possible as extreme heat could kill these plants while in a box. AL, FL, SC, TX, WI, LA

"The betta fish loves it."

Plants arrived in a clear sealed bag. This package comes with TONS of seeds! Can't wait to see how well it does. I treat it like my other swords and place a fert tab under the gravel. I'm ok with this since I have 3 assassin snails. After a good month in my aquarium, the brown dried sections did not improve. Attached are pictures and video from day one thru day 21.
