AquaLeaf Aquatics First Impressions

"Doing great!"

Hygrophila Pinnatifida, this is the plant I wanted most of all. I received the new package the next day and the plants were perfect. I planted them in planters for my betta to rest on and he loves them. Would definitely recommend this product ESPECIALLY if you're new to aquatic plants. I guess the heated water finally got them to grow. Treating it just like my other sword plants. This time I just put it all over the bottom.

"Happy with my purchase."

Altlandsberg Sword, very beautiful plant. Altlandsberg Sword, very beautiful plant. Java fern is doing ok, it is still getting used to the tank. The moss is covering up the wires so you can no longer see them. Of course it's just a twisted clump of it now. Java Fern and Vallisneria, two of the easiest plants to have. I'm ok with this since I have 3 assassin snails.

"The betta fish loves it."

Anubias Barteri, came with 3 leaves, tall and healthy. I haven't noticed any snails either could help that the plants arrived fairly dry. This allowed the seeds to disperse. This is not my first time ordering from the seller. So I have a few more Java Ferns starting from this mother plant. They still floated around for a bit but eventually settled to the bottom evenly. No roots yet, but still green and no evidence of dying.

"Hopefully it will grow."

Proper care will take care of that. When it's wrapped and plastic and stuck in a box that’s gunna happen. A bit smaller than advertised but they'll grow. I stuck the other pack in freezer dont think ill need anytime soon. But on the marimo moss balls and even some of teh hardscape it was attached to. As others have said these things will stick to EVERYTHING. Photo was taken on 8 days after receiving seeds.

"NO sign of distress."

As others have said these things will stick to EVERYTHING. Eventually the whole stem started to rot. Red Melon Sword, arrived healthy and green. Plants came in healthy and the instructions were clear on how to care for them. I feel a little goes a long way too, so these two packages would plant a TON. After looking around I went ahead and decided to give these a try. The sticky glue like glop it grows in was not a problem.

"Seems pretty hardy."

I will update again on the status of the plant customer service was also great! But Java fern is suppose to grow fast so I am excited. I know much thought was placed in picking these plants. This allowed the seeds to disperse. My fish and I are very happy with this purchase. Sprouted after 3 days in a Pyrex planted in existing aqurium substrate. My tank is a medium light, low-tech 55g set up.

I just wanted to update this almost 7 months later. Really perfect for my first tank plant. But on the marimo moss balls and even some of teh hardscape it was attached to. I did trim some of the plants back to remove old leaves so only new ones are left. My tank is a medium light, low-tech 55g set up. As others have said these things will stick to EVERYTHING. DO NOT BUY unless you have an established quarantine tank, and quarantine them first.

Then, before planting, dip them in the bucket for a few minutes. Doing great so far and placed a fert tab in the gravel. Has not grown, has not died, it is just there. Hopefully, this will help set what you will experience as well. Of course it's just a twisted clump of it now. Within 7 days I had an even beautiful carpet! But Java fern is suppose to grow fast so I am excited.
