This is my first review posting ever! Can't wait to see how well it does. As others have said these things will stick to EVERYTHING. After that it seemed to grow right before my eyes.

"These are AWESOME!"

This allowed the seeds to disperse. So I have a few more Java Ferns starting from this mother plant. This allowed the seeds to disperse. Altlandsberg Sword, very beautiful plant. My fish and I are very happy with this purchase. No leaves have rotted and doing very well. Attached are pictures and video from day one thru day 21.

"All healthy."

When it's wrapped and plastic and stuck in a box that’s gunna happen. DO NOT BUY unless you have an established quarantine tank, and quarantine them first. This package comes with TONS of seeds! I just wanted to update this almost 7 months later. Would definitely recommend this product ESPECIALLY if you're new to aquatic plants. A bit smaller than advertised but they'll grow. Proper care will take care of that.

"Thank you!"

It's not brow either, just a brownish green if that's possible. Doing great so far and placed a fert tab in the gravel. I eventually scooped the seeds out and gave up. Really perfect for my first tank plant. I did trim some of the plants back to remove old leaves so only new ones are left. One month after first dry starting my tank. Eventually the whole stem started to rot.

Planterest Final Thoughts

"Pretty neat."

Placed in the tank weighted and within 5 days was shedding leaves like crazy. If I remember I will will send photos and update this posting. Planted the roots and left the rhizome on top. The sticky glue like glop it grows in was not a problem. Plants came in healthy and the instructions were clear on how to care for them. Telanthera, man oh man did I really like this. However this is not the plants themselves fault.

"That is totally expected."

No leaves have rotted and doing very well. After looking around I went ahead and decided to give these a try. This time I just put it all over the bottom. EVERY SINGLE seed germinated and grew into a plant. The plants arrived in Hawaii from California within 48 hours and looked amazing. I guess the heated water finally got them to grow. Roots were already growing so planted in the tank.

I treat it like my other swords and place a fert tab under the gravel. Such a wonderful and easy way to add whimsy to a tank. They've been in my tank 24 hours and are starting to adjust well. This is my first review posting ever! Put weight on it, which came with them, placed in tank. Plants arrived in a clear sealed bag. The Java fern has a ton of little baby java ferns on it now.

"Healthy, vibrant plants."

The package is great, they are resealable. This time I just put it all over the bottom. The sticky glue like glop it grows in was not a problem. But I decide to keep it and put it in my fish tank.

Greenpro Final Thoughts

"Good deal!"

Older leaves were purple in color and new leaves were green. If it grows as expected, I might be supplying local shops with it before long. But I decide to keep it and put it in my fish tank. It's just not available in local pet shops. I eventually scooped the seeds out and gave up. Make sure you have a cleared area to plant. Photo was taken on 8 days after receiving seeds.

  • 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.

"Or SO IT SEEMED."

This time to add variety I ordered the FL bundle, and am once again glad I did. Some need more work then others to get them established. They are doing great and growing very well. I could not get them to grow at first, but that was my fault. Over night on the 7th day it sprouted all over the tank. I could not get them to grow at first, but that was my fault. 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. Sprouted after 3 days in a Pyrex planted in existing aqurium substrate. This is not my first time ordering from the seller. It's really cute and I have plenty of seed left over to play in other places. I treat it like my other swords and place a fert tab under the gravel. When it's wrapped and plastic and stuck in a box that’s gunna happen. Some need more work then others to get them established.

"I was happy for that!"

It's part of it so do the dry start method. I stuck the other pack in freezer dont think ill need anytime soon. But it's not a brilliant green but any stretch of the imagination. Then, before planting, dip them in the bucket for a few minutes. They grow rather quickly, and root very deeply into your substrate. After a good month in my aquarium, the brown dried sections did not improve. The plants arrived in Hawaii from California within 48 hours and looked amazing.
