"So far doing good."

They floated for a really long time and eventually migrated together. I know much thought was placed in picking these plants. I'll post an update in about a month. I would note they did not come with any instructions. All plants were healthy and in great condition. I received the new package the next day and the plants were perfect. After a good month in my aquarium, the brown dried sections did not improve.

Mainam Final Thoughts

"I love these!"

Telanthera, man oh man did I really like this. Telanthera, man oh man did I really like this. I liked the fact the seeds didn't go all over the place. I got these to dry start a carpet in my new nano tank. Hygrophila Araguaya, arrived with 5-6 stems with a weight. On the plus side I can use the moss as living string to tie other plants to things. Would definitely recommend this product ESPECIALLY if you're new to aquatic plants.

"I would buy them again."

I feel a little goes a long way too, so these two packages would plant a TON. It's alive and seems to be growing. I felt like this was a great price for this plant. They've been in my tank 24 hours and are starting to adjust well. They are doing great and growing very well. I did trim some of the plants back to remove old leaves so only new ones are left. If I remember I will will send photos and update this posting.

"It seems to be growing."

Some need more work then others to get them established. I did a dry start and followed the instructions as directed very meticulously. This package comes with TONS of seeds! So I have a few more Java Ferns starting from this mother plant. I got these to dry start a carpet in my new nano tank. Placed in the tank and after a week leaves started to turn to mush. Was able to get 2 babies off of the stem already.

"Pretty neat."

Plants arrived in a clear sealed bag. It even stuck to the corys who had to brush against a rock to get it off. Has not grown, has not died, it is just there. I received it healthy and in great shape. I would note they did not come with any instructions. The sticky glue like glop it grows in was not a problem. No leaves have rotted and doing very well.

"One last note."

Marble Queen, So hard to find information on its aquatic form. Some need more work then others to get them established. Hygrophila Araguaya, arrived with 5-6 stems with a weight. I just wanted to see if it worked and it did. Doing great so far and placed a fert tab in the gravel. Proper care will take care of that. I just wanted to update this almost 7 months later.

"I really didn't see any."

The Java fern has a ton of little baby java ferns on it now. Sprouted after 3 days in a Pyrex planted in existing aqurium substrate. So took it out and trimmed most of the leaves off and left a couple on each stem. Would definitely recommend this product ESPECIALLY if you're new to aquatic plants. I feel a little goes a long way too, so these two packages would plant a TON. Placed in the tank and after a week leaves started to turn to mush.

"So far so good."

Cleaned them up and placed in the tank. It's not brow either, just a brownish green if that's possible. I did a dry start and followed the instructions as directed very meticulously. As others have said these things will stick to EVERYTHING. I didn't realize it was 2 packages and there was so many in each package. Photo was taken on 8 days after receiving seeds. After a good month in my aquarium, the brown dried sections did not improve.

"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.

"Would buy again."

This is day 1& 2 Will post an update over time. My tank is a medium light, low-tech 55g set up. It seems hit or miss but the second time around I am very satisfied. No leaves have rotted and doing very well. I received the new package the next day and the plants were perfect. Plants came in healthy and the instructions were clear on how to care for them. They've been in my tank 24 hours and are starting to adjust well.

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.

"There was no heat pack."

This package comes with TONS of seeds! I posted before and after pictures of both aquariums. I placed the bulk of the moss in the webbing and twisted it up to hold it in place. Some need more work then others to get them established. I got these to dry start a carpet in my new nano tank. Very good quality plants at an amazing price, roots looked great.

"Doing great!"

Put weight on it, which came with them, placed in tank. The plants picture is now, almost 7 months after I received it. I haven't noticed any snails either could help that the plants arrived fairly dry. They grow rather quickly, and root very deeply into your substrate. I feel a little goes a long way too, so these two packages would plant a TON. Cut all leaves but 3 of them and its doing better, see some new growth this morning. These ferns are the only plants in my aquarium so i KNOW it's from them.

"Looked nice and healthy."

Cleaned them up and placed in the tank. Make sure you have a cleared area to plant. I can imagine I will buy this again as I use up the seeds. I haven't noticed any snails either could help that the plants arrived fairly dry. I received the new package the next day and the plants were perfect. However this is not the plants themselves fault. Eventually the whole stem started to rot.
