1. 12 Water Spangles (Salvinia Minima), Live Aquarium/Aquatic/Floating/Pond/Freshwater Plant by G&Z

User Ratings: 59 15

G’z First Impressions

"So far so good."

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 attached a picture."

Such a wonderful and easy way to add whimsy to a tank. I just wanted to update this almost 7 months later. Really perfect for my first tank plant. Hygrophila Araguaya, arrived with 5-6 stems with a weight. These ferns are the only plants in my aquarium so i KNOW it's from them. I did trim some of the plants back to remove old leaves so only new ones are left. Make sure you have a cleared area to plant.

No roots yet, but still green and no evidence of dying. Cut all leaves but 3 of them and its doing better, see some new growth this morning. Photo was taken on 8 days after receiving seeds. If I remember I will will send photos and update this posting. Some need more work then others to get them established. I eventually scooped the seeds out and gave up.

"It's a small thing!"

It's not sticky once it sprouted, on day 2 for me. But Java fern is suppose to grow fast so I am excited. Treating it just like my other sword plants. It's just not available in local pet shops. It's part of it so do the dry start method. After a good month in my aquarium, the brown dried sections did not improve. It's just not available in local pet shops.

"Happy with my purchase."

Hopefully, this will help set what you will experience as well. Get the seeds exactly where you want them before adding water. I eventually scooped the seeds out and gave up. This time I just put it all over the bottom. Altlandsberg Sword, very beautiful plant. I will update again on the status of the plant customer service was also great! It's part of it so do the dry start method.

"A slightly small portion."

Can't wait to see how well it does. It even stuck to the corys who had to brush against a rock to get it off. They are doing great and growing very well. My fish and I are very happy with this purchase. It even stuck to the corys who had to brush against a rock to get it off. I got these to dry start a carpet in my new nano tank. They still floated around for a bit but eventually settled to the bottom evenly.

G’z First Impressions

"The betta fish loves it."

Of course it's just a twisted clump of it now. After a good month in my aquarium, the brown dried sections did not improve. I can imagine I will buy this again as I use up the seeds. One month after first dry starting my tank. And the amount of plants you get is by far the best deal. They floated for a really long time and eventually migrated together. Hygrophila Pinnatifida, this is the plant I wanted most of all.

"A slightly small portion."

Such a wonderful and easy way to add whimsy to a tank. This allowed the seeds to disperse. Treating it just like my other sword plants. But it's not a brilliant green but any stretch of the imagination. I posted before and after pictures of both aquariums. EVERY SINGLE seed germinated and grew into a plant. Planted the roots and left the rhizome on top.

"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.

"Love them!"

After looking around I went ahead and decided to give these a try. Older leaves were purple in color and new leaves were green. After that it seemed to grow right before my eyes. The moss is covering up the wires so you can no longer see them. You can see my cory is obsessed with it. I haven't noticed any snails either could help that the plants arrived fairly dry.

"Excellent Experience."

Doing great so far and placed a fert tab in the gravel. Altlandsberg Sword, very beautiful plant. EVERY SINGLE seed germinated and grew into a plant. Seller even wrote a detailed page of instructions to care for the plants. Cleaned them up and placed in the tank. This is my first review posting ever! I don't know if after the ParaGard treatment if I should treat it in an algaecide.

"More than pleased."

So took it out and trimmed most of the leaves off and left a couple on each stem. EVERY SINGLE seed germinated and grew into a plant. I liked the fact the seeds didn't go all over the place. Planted the roots and left the rhizome on top. The Java fern has a ton of little baby java ferns on it now. Hopefully, this will help set what you will experience as well. I would note they did not come with any instructions.

"So happy with purchase."

All plants were healthy and in great condition. Marble Queen, So hard to find information on its aquatic form. My tank is a medium light, low-tech 55g set up. I stuck the other pack in freezer dont think ill need anytime soon. Was able to get 2 babies off of the stem already. After looking around I went ahead and decided to give these a try. I received the new package the next day and the plants were perfect.

"That is totally expected."

I made a light wire webbing out of light weight wire. On the plus side I can use the moss as living string to tie other plants to things. After that it seemed to grow right before my eyes. But on the marimo moss balls and even some of teh hardscape it was attached to. It's not brow either, just a brownish green if that's possible. Some leaves fell off, but overall doing very well. Telanthera, man oh man did I really like this.
