I can imagine I will buy this again as I use up the seeds. A lot of information online, came with 5-6 stems and healthy. I know much thought was placed in picking these plants. I received it healthy and in great shape. However this is not the plants themselves fault. 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!

"So far, so good."

This is day 1& 2 Will post an update over time. Attached are pictures and video from day one thru day 21. I stuck the other pack in freezer dont think ill need anytime soon. Make sure you have a cleared area to plant. I feel a little goes a long way too, so these two packages would plant a TON. I liked the fact the seeds didn't go all over the place. It's really cute and I have plenty of seed left over to play in other places.

"The betta fish loves it."

It seems hit or miss but the second time around I am very satisfied. It's not sticky once it sprouted, on day 2 for me. Telanthera, man oh man did I really like this. I divided it between three tanks and all three divisions are looking good. I don't know if after the ParaGard treatment if I should treat it in an algaecide. EVERY SINGLE seed germinated and grew into a plant. Just received my plants yesterday and I'm very happy with them.

"All healthy."

Copper is toxic to inverts like snails and shrimp. The sticky glue like glop it grows in was not a problem. It seems hit or miss but the second time around I am very satisfied. The plants are awesome and I got way more than I was expecting. Has not grown, has not died, it is just there. Overall, at the moment, I'm pleased with my purchase. Marble Queen, So hard to find information on its aquatic form.

"It makes a mess."

I liked the fact the seeds didn't go all over the place. These ferns are the only plants in my aquarium so i KNOW it's from them. They've been in my tank 24 hours and are starting to adjust well. Java Fern and Vallisneria, two of the easiest plants to have. If I ever make another tank, I'm ordering from here again. I just wanted to update this almost 7 months later. It's just not available in local pet shops.

Planterest P379 Final Thoughts

"Would buy again."

Plants came in healthy and the instructions were clear on how to care for them. I planted them in planters for my betta to rest on and he loves them. Placed in the tank and after a week leaves started to turn to mush. The plants did all arrive dry so I am sure there will be some melting. Has not grown, has not died, it is just there. I could not get them to grow at first, but that was my fault. One month after first dry starting my tank.

Plants arrived in a clear sealed bag. Java fern is doing ok, it is still getting used to the tank. DO NOT BUY unless you have an established quarantine tank, and quarantine them first. I received it healthy and in great shape. The plants picture is now, almost 7 months after I received it. They grow rather quickly, and root very deeply into your substrate.

"Great for tall aquariums!"

I felt like this was a great price for this plant. The Java fern has a ton of little baby java ferns on it now. Hygrophila Pinnatifida, this is the plant I wanted most of all. As others have said these things will stick to EVERYTHING. The Java fern has a ton of little baby java ferns on it now. Attached are pictures and video from day one thru day 21.

"Very very healthy plants."

I made a light wire webbing out of light weight wire. They still floated around for a bit but eventually settled to the bottom evenly. I really didn't think this was going to be a great buy. All are very healthy for having been in the mail. No roots yet, but still green and no evidence of dying. Anubias Barteri, came with 3 leaves, tall and healthy. Telanthera, man oh man did I really like this.

I posted new pictures to show the growth but I did move some plants around. Older leaves were purple in color and new leaves were green. I really didn't think this was going to be a great buy.

"A cautionary tale."

I did a dry start and followed the instructions as directed very meticulously. The moss is covering up the wires so you can no longer see them. But it's not a brilliant green but any stretch of the imagination. This time to add variety I ordered the FL bundle, and am once again glad I did. Cut all leaves but 3 of them and its doing better, see some new growth this morning. It's part of it so do the dry start method. Plants came in healthy and the instructions were clear on how to care for them.

"Great for tall aquariums!"

The Java fern has a ton of little baby java ferns on it now. I will update again on the status of the plant customer service was also great! On the plus side I can use the moss as living string to tie other plants to things. This is not my first time ordering from the seller. Then, before planting, dip them in the bucket for a few minutes. I would note they did not come with any instructions. Treating it just like my other sword plants.

"My carpet is about 1."

After that it seemed to grow right before my eyes. Can see where a leaf has been plucked. This package comes with TONS of seeds! Just received my plants yesterday and I'm very happy with them. Hygrophila Araguaya, arrived with 5-6 stems with a weight. And, it has survived pretty well considering I never give it nutrients. I eventually scooped the seeds out and gave up.

Polar Bear's Aquarium B062 Final Thoughts

"Seems pretty hardy."

I know much thought was placed in picking these plants. Sprouted after 3 days in a Pyrex planted in existing aqurium substrate. I posted new pictures to show the growth but I did move some plants around. I placed the bulk of the moss in the webbing and twisted it up to hold it in place. Proper care will take care of that. You can see my cory is obsessed with it. Roots were already growing so planted in the tank.

"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.

"Pretty neat."

Overall i'm happy with the purchase. Anubias Barteri, came with 3 leaves, tall and healthy. Such a wonderful and easy way to add whimsy to a tank. The Java fern has a ton of little baby java ferns on it now. I guess the heated water finally got them to grow. They've been in my tank 24 hours and are starting to adjust well. So I have a few more Java Ferns starting from this mother plant.

"One last note."

And the amount of plants you get is by far the best deal. I posted before and after pictures of both aquariums. So took it out and trimmed most of the leaves off and left a couple on each stem. The moss is covering up the wires so you can no longer see them. You can see my cory is obsessed with it. I can imagine I will buy this again as I use up the seeds. A bit smaller than advertised but they'll grow.

"Doing great!"

I divided it between three tanks and all three divisions are looking good. No leaves have rotted and doing very well. I eventually scooped the seeds out and gave up. I guess the heated water finally got them to grow. This time I just put it all over the bottom. Planted the roots and left the rhizome on top. Some need more work then others to get them established.
