AquaPlants First Impressions

"NO sign of distress."

I stuck the other pack in freezer dont think ill need anytime soon. I can imagine I will buy this again as I use up the seeds. I just wanted to update this almost 7 months later. My tank is a medium light, low-tech 55g set up. But it's not a brilliant green but any stretch of the imagination. But on the marimo moss balls and even some of teh hardscape it was attached to. Can see where a leaf has been plucked.

  • Java Moss - Vesicularia dubyana (4x6 cm) - Live Aquarium Plant
  • Java Moss - Vesicularia Dubyana is another very popular and undemanding aquarium moss.
  • Vesicularia dubyana Good beginner plant, it can be cultivated in almost any kind of water.
  • Also known as Java Moss, this plant has a deep green color with tiny leaves. Java Moss is intensively branched with lots of tiny stems surrounded by rhizoids and leaves. The rhizoids are used by the moss to attach itself to substrates. Vesicularia Dubyana do not have any role in nutrient absorption. Because it has not roots, Vesicularia Dubyana should not be buried in gravel. Cultivation of this plant should be done by spreading a thin layer of Java Moss on top of a solid substrate as a rock or

AquaPlants Final Thoughts

"Love Them!"

Java fern is doing ok, it is still getting used to the tank. And the amount of plants you get is by far the best deal. My fish and I are very happy with this purchase. I made a light wire webbing out of light weight wire. If I ever make another tank, I'm ordering from here again. The plants did all arrive dry so I am sure there will be some melting. I don't know if after the ParaGard treatment if I should treat it in an algaecide.

2. Azolla filiculoides (Water Velvet) - Live Aquarium Plant

User Ratings: 40 43

AquaPlants First Impressions

"Gorgeous plants!"

It's just not available in local pet shops. Seller even wrote a detailed page of instructions to care for the plants. Altlandsberg Sword, very beautiful plant. Some leaves came off but overall it is doing very well. Sprouted after 3 days in a Pyrex planted in existing aqurium substrate. The plants arrived in Hawaii from California within 48 hours and looked amazing. But over all really lovely plants extremely happy.

  • Azolla filiculoides (Water Velvet) - Live Aquarium Plant
  • You buy 10-15 small plants of Azolla filiculoides (Water Velvet) – Species Profile Azolla filiculoides (aka Water Velvet) is a miniscule floating plant.
  • From a distance it can resemble Duckweed (Lemna minor), due to both having tiny leaves, but the plants are unrelated.
  • In fact Azolla are more closely related to Salvinia. Both are floating, aquatic ferns. This fast growing plant will sprout daughter plants from the parent plant, creating mat-like layer of plant material on the water surface. Like Salvinia, its leaves have a fuzzy, velvety look to them. This comes from the many tiny, water repelling hairs that grow on the leaf surface. Unlike Salvinia, Water Velvet does not grow trailing roots.

"5 gallon betta tank."

It seems hit or miss but the second time around I am very satisfied. After that it seemed to grow right before my eyes. I divided it between three tanks and all three divisions are looking good. I absolutely love how this plant looks in my tank. I will definitely reorder in future. No roots yet, but still green and no evidence of dying. I did trim some of the plants back to remove old leaves so only new ones are left.

3. Dwarf Hairgrass - Eleocharis acicularis - in-vitro – Live Aquarium Plant

AquaPlants First Impressions

"That is totally expected."

I got these to dry start a carpet in my new nano tank. I can imagine I will buy this again as I use up the seeds. However this is not the plants themselves fault. The moss is covering up the wires so you can no longer see them. I would note they did not come with any instructions. I haven't noticed any snails either could help that the plants arrived fairly dry. But it's not a brilliant green but any stretch of the imagination.

  • Dwarf Hairgrass - Eleocharis acicularis - in-vitro – Live Aquarium Plant

  • t is prettiest planted in small bunches quite close to each other, which will gradually form a solid mass of plants.

"I love these!"

Eventually the whole stem started to rot. Good root start on the plant healthy and thriving so far. My tank is a medium light, low-tech 55g set up. I just wanted to see if it worked and it did. No roots yet, but still green and no evidence of dying. But I am also glad I purchased 2 orders 4 Oz is well 4 Oz. Has not grown, has not died, it is just there.

"Great quality, thanks!"

Put weight on it, which came with them, placed in tank. Photo was taken on 8 days after receiving seeds. Copper is toxic to inverts like snails and shrimp. I placed the bulk of the moss in the webbing and twisted it up to hold it in place. Anubias Barteri, came with 3 leaves, tall and healthy. It's really cute and I have plenty of seed left over to play in other places. But over all really lovely plants extremely happy.

"Excellent plants."

After looking around I went ahead and decided to give these a try. I treat it like my other swords and place a fert tab under the gravel. I placed the bulk of the moss in the webbing and twisted it up to hold it in place. Some need more work then others to get them established. Plants arrived in a clear sealed bag.

"My carpet is about 1."

Attached are pictures and video from day one thru day 21. I received the new package the next day and the plants were perfect. Telanthera, man oh man did I really like this. If it grows as expected, I might be supplying local shops with it before long. I planted them in planters for my betta to rest on and he loves them. Of course it's just a twisted clump of it now. As others have said these things will stick to EVERYTHING.

Sova Marimo First Impressions

"Gorgeous plants!"

The sticky glue like glop it grows in was not a problem. I didn't realize it was 2 packages and there was so many in each package. On the plus side I can use the moss as living string to tie other plants to things. This is day 1& 2 Will post an update over time. A bit smaller than advertised but they'll grow. Would definitely recommend this product ESPECIALLY if you're new to aquatic plants. Copper is toxic to inverts like snails and shrimp.

A bit smaller than advertised but they'll grow. I eventually scooped the seeds out and gave up. And the amount of plants you get is by far the best deal. Cut all leaves but 3 of them and its doing better, see some new growth this morning. I'll post an update in about a month. The moss is covering up the wires so you can no longer see them. Placed in the tank and after a week leaves started to turn to mush.

7. Live Aquatic Plant Fish Tank - Anubias Barteri Nana 20~27 Leaves -No pesticides(Plant Pot Excluded)

Aquarium Live Water Plants First Impressions

"No co2 added."

Java fern is doing ok, it is still getting used to the tank. I made a light wire webbing out of light weight wire. I'll post an update in about a month. It's not brow either, just a brownish green if that's possible. Proper care will take care of that. Can't wait to see how well it does. Plants arrived in a clear sealed bag.

  • Live Aquatic Plant Fish Tank - Anubias Barteri Nana 20~27 Leaves -No pesticides(Plant Pot Excluded)
  • ***Offer a free water quality record card, that help you to know well for tank water quality.***
  • Anubias nana (mini) petite x 1portion ....25~35 leaves (The plant pot excluded)
  • With fronds that curl down, and layer upon themselves, it’s a very unique looking moss. The effect is completely different from any of the other mosses in the hobby, as Java Moss, Taiwan Moss, Willow Moss, Christmas Moss, etc all give a similar look, despite minor differences. Fortunately, just like those others, however, Fissidens fontanus is just as easy to grow, and readily attaches to the hardscape.

"Wow, so many plants!"

These ferns are the only plants in my aquarium so i KNOW it's from them. I got these to dry start a carpet in my new nano tank. I received it healthy and in great shape. Overall, at the moment, I'm pleased with my purchase. Was able to get 2 babies off of the stem already. EVERY SINGLE seed germinated and grew into a plant. Seller even wrote a detailed page of instructions to care for the plants.

"Good deal!"

Seller even wrote a detailed page of instructions to care for the plants. I guess the heated water finally got them to grow. I divided it between three tanks and all three divisions are looking good. Hygrophila Pinnatifida, this is the plant I wanted most of all. On the plus side I can use the moss as living string to tie other plants to things. I just wanted to see if it worked and it did. Java Fern and Vallisneria, two of the easiest plants to have.

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. Roots were already growing so planted in the tank. This allowed the seeds to disperse. If I ever make another tank, I'm ordering from here again. Altlandsberg Sword, very beautiful plant.

I'll post an update in about a month. In my low tech tank it grows slowly enough that it would be easy to control. The plants did all arrive dry so I am sure there will be some melting. 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.

"Good deal!"

It seems hit or miss but the second time around I am very satisfied. Lobelia Cardinalis, arrived in perfect condition. But I decide to keep it and put it in my fish tank. Older leaves were purple in color and new leaves were green. You can see my cory is obsessed with it. Seller even wrote a detailed page of instructions to care for the plants. They floated for a really long time and eventually migrated together.
