"I love these!"

Was able to get 2 babies off of the stem already. Seller even wrote a detailed page of instructions to care for the plants. So I have a few more Java Ferns starting from this mother plant. Lobelia Cardinalis, arrived in perfect condition. Transfered into the aqurium on day 6. I'm ok with this since I have 3 assassin snails. I received the new package the next day and the plants were perfect.

Aquarium Plants Factory Final Thoughts

"Nice mix of heights."

Seller even wrote a detailed page of instructions to care for the plants. The plants did all arrive dry so I am sure there will be some melting. Treating it just like my other sword plants. It's part of it so do the dry start method. Just received my plants yesterday and I'm very happy with them. Get the seeds exactly where you want them before adding water. This time I just put it all over the bottom.

"A cautionary tale."

After a good month in my aquarium, the brown dried sections did not improve. Put weight on it, which came with them, placed in tank. I just wanted to see if it worked and it did. I eventually scooped the seeds out and gave up. I stuck the other pack in freezer dont think ill need anytime soon. If I ever make another tank, I'm ordering from here again. But I decide to keep it and put it in my fish tank.

My tank is a medium light, low-tech 55g set up. Seller even wrote a detailed page of instructions to care for the plants. I really didn't think this was going to be a great buy.

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.

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.

"There was no heat pack."

Hygrophila Araguaya, arrived with 5-6 stems with a weight. Proper care will take care of that. If I remember I will will send photos and update this posting. Cleaned them up and placed in the tank. It even stuck to the corys who had to brush against a rock to get it off. Photo was taken on 8 days after receiving seeds. Really perfect for my first tank plant.

"Never bury the rhizome!"

No roots yet, but still green and no evidence of dying. Attached are pictures and video from day one thru day 21. I will update again on the status of the plant customer service was also great! The plants did all arrive dry so I am sure there will be some melting. I felt like this was a great price for this plant. I didn't realize it was 2 packages and there was so many in each package. In my low tech tank it grows slowly enough that it would be easy to control.

I feel a little goes a long way too, so these two packages would plant a TON. It's alive and seems to be growing. I felt like this was a great price for this plant. They've been in my tank 24 hours and are starting to adjust well. They are doing great and growing very well. I did trim some of the plants back to remove old leaves so only new ones are left.

"Love them!"

Was able to get 2 babies off of the stem already. Over night on the 7th day it sprouted all over the tank. Picture shows my new plants actually coating my old plants. Java Fern and Vallisneria, two of the easiest plants to have. Hopefully, this will help set what you will experience as well. It's just not available in local pet shops. I would note they did not come with any instructions.
