"2 days later HOT HOT HOT."

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!

AquLife Final Thoughts

"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.

"Looked nice and healthy."

Seller even wrote a detailed page of instructions to care for the plants. No leaves have rotted and doing very well. I can imagine I will buy this again as I use up the seeds. This allowed the seeds to disperse. This time to add variety I ordered the FL bundle, and am once again glad I did. And the amount of plants you get is by far the best deal. I haven't noticed any snails either could help that the plants arrived fairly dry.

Planterest B082 Final Thoughts

"Super fast delivery too!"

Placed in the tank and after a week leaves started to turn to mush. Doing great so far and placed a fert tab in the gravel. Hygrophila Pinnatifida, this is the plant I wanted most of all. Get the seeds exactly where you want them before adding water. They still floated around for a bit but eventually settled to the bottom evenly. Anubias Barteri, came with 3 leaves, tall and healthy. Roots were already growing so planted in the tank.

"It's a small thing!"

The plants did all arrive dry so I am sure there will be some melting. I could not get them to grow at first, but that was my fault. The Java fern has a ton of little baby java ferns on it now. I know much thought was placed in picking these plants. Very good quality plants at an amazing price, roots looked great. This time to add variety I ordered the FL bundle, and am once again glad I did. Would definitely recommend this product ESPECIALLY if you're new to aquatic plants.

"Never bury the rhizome!"

Would definitely recommend this product ESPECIALLY if you're new to aquatic plants. Attached are pictures and video from day one thru day 21. Then, before planting, dip them in the bucket for a few minutes. I could not get them to grow at first, but that was my fault. One month after first dry starting my tank. Some need more work then others to get them established. Java fern is doing ok, it is still getting used to the tank.

"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.

"2 days later HOT HOT HOT."

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. Anubias Barteri, came with 3 leaves, tall and healthy. Plants arrived in a clear sealed bag. Overall, at the moment, I'm pleased with my purchase. If it grows as expected, I might be supplying local shops with it before long.

"Big healthy roots."

Placed in the tank weighted and within 5 days was shedding leaves like crazy. Placed in the tank and after a week leaves started to turn to mush. Plants came in healthy and the instructions were clear on how to care for them. And the amount of plants you get is by far the best deal. I placed the bulk of the moss in the webbing and twisted it up to hold it in place. Plants came in healthy and the instructions were clear on how to care for them. I felt like this was a great price for this plant.

"It is still doing great!"

And, it has survived pretty well considering I never give it nutrients. Planted the roots and left the rhizome on top. I eventually scooped the seeds out and gave up. But I decide to keep it and put it in my fish tank. The plants are awesome and I got way more than I was expecting. I don't know if after the ParaGard treatment if I should treat it in an algaecide. It seems hit or miss but the second time around I am very satisfied.

I absolutely love how this plant looks in my tank. Treating it just like my other sword plants. Planted the roots and left the rhizome on top. Eventually the whole stem started to rot. But over all really lovely plants extremely happy. So took it out and trimmed most of the leaves off and left a couple on each stem. Then, before planting, dip them in the bucket for a few minutes.

"My fish love them."

I received the new package the next day and the plants were perfect. It's just not available in local pet shops. Java Fern and Vallisneria, two of the easiest plants to have. Planted the roots and left the rhizome on top. Older leaves were purple in color and new leaves were green. This time to add variety I ordered the FL bundle, and am once again glad I did. I'll post an update in about a month.

"I was happy for that!"

I made a light wire webbing out of light weight wire. No leaves have rotted and doing very well. On the plus side I can use the moss as living string to tie other plants to things. Some need more work then others to get them established. It seems hit or miss but the second time around I am very satisfied. It even stuck to the corys who had to brush against a rock to get it off. I absolutely love how this plant looks in my tank.

  • Water Hyancinth - Floating Live Pond Plant by Aquarium Plants Discounts
  • IMPORTANT: Please note that during times of extreme weather, live plants will suffer due to extreme temperatures.
