"It was about 3 ft long!"

And the amount of plants you get is by far the best deal. After a good month in my aquarium, the brown dried sections did not improve. Fast shipping, impressed with product. Some leaves came off but overall it is doing very well. This is day 1& 2 Will post an update over time. Treating it just like my other sword plants. I received it healthy and in great shape.

SunGrow Final Thoughts

"So far, so good."

I stuck the other pack in freezer dont think ill need anytime soon. The moss is covering up the wires so you can no longer see them. Hopefully, this will help set what you will experience as well. I stuck the other pack in freezer dont think ill need anytime soon. My fish and I are very happy with this purchase. They've been in my tank 24 hours and are starting to adjust well. It seems hit or miss but the second time around I am very satisfied.

"This is fine."

Java fern is doing ok, it is still getting used to the tank. I got these to dry start a carpet in my new nano tank. Very good quality plants at an amazing price, roots looked great. They are doing great and growing very well. The moss is covering up the wires so you can no longer see them. No roots yet, but still green and no evidence of dying. I'll post an update in about a month.

  • SunGrow Hermit Crab Sea Sponges, 2 Inches, Promote Healthy Shell Development, Assists in Drinking, Moisture Cocoon to Keep Crabs Moist and Hydrated, 4 Pack
  • ✔ SERVES AS MOISTURE COCOON FOR HERMIT CRABS --- Having modified gills, crabs are able to live on land. However, since their breathing mechanism is not lungs, these gills need enough moisture to function well. The 4-pack Hermit Sponge by SunGrow allows your little climber pet refuge if they feel too dry. These sponges allow your hermit crabs to drink and exit their water dishes conveniently.
  • ✔ MAINTAIN CRABITAT’S OPTIMAL HUMIDITY LEVEL --- Maintaining proper humidity is essential in a crab’s habitat in order for him to survive healthily. The ideal level is about 70 – 80 percent. In nature, crabs live in a warm and moist type of climate and including a sponge in your crabitat is one way to provide them humid living space. The sea sponge provides a larger surface where water dries and retains moisture.
  • ✔ GIVE SAFE ENTRY AND EXIT POINTS TO WATER DISH --- Hermit crabs simply love to climb. Placing this sea sponge in the dish can help them climb in and out which can easily reduce a possible case of drowning. As these sponges also help in keeping their gills moist, them being claustrophobic in their dish can also be avoided.
  • ✔ PROMOTES LONGER LIFE --- Chitin, calcium and other healthy raw materials found in the ocean’s bottom are present in this sponge. So when your crawlers nibble on them, they will benefit and have a healthier exoskeleton, the outer shell which they shed over time. Apart from that, this being a good source of water facilitates them a quick drink whenever they feel thirsty.
  • ✔ DIRECTIONS FOR USAGE --- Pack includes 4 pieces approximately 2 inches long x 1.5 inches wide x 1.5 inches tall. These sponges add rustic beauty to your crab’s tank aside from its other functional benefits. In your crab’s water dish, ensure to place the sponge in a region that takes up most of its dish area. Regularly clean the bowl and sponge. To clean sponge properly, simply put it inside the microwave for 10-15 seconds or dip it in the boiling water.

SunGrow Final Thoughts

"2 days later HOT HOT HOT."

It's really cute and I have plenty of seed left over to play in other places. In my low tech tank it grows slowly enough that it would be easy to control. It's just not available in local pet shops. I received the new package the next day and the plants were perfect. This is day 1& 2 Will post an update over time. It's part of it so do the dry start method. Roots were already growing so planted in the tank.

"This is day 3 of growth."

You can see my cory is obsessed with it. Make sure you have a cleared area to plant. I guess the heated water finally got them to grow. All are very healthy for having been in the mail. Plants arrived in a clear sealed bag. Can't wait to see how well it does. I did trim some of the plants back to remove old leaves so only new ones are left.

Fast shipping, impressed with product. These ferns are the only plants in my aquarium so i KNOW it's from them. Some need more work then others to get them established. I absolutely love how this plant looks in my tank. I would note they did not come with any instructions. So I have a few more Java Ferns starting from this mother plant. I placed the bulk of the moss in the webbing and twisted it up to hold it in place.

Aquarium Plants Discounts Final Thoughts

"Great seeds!"

I treat it like my other swords and place a fert tab under the gravel. I haven't noticed any snails either could help that the plants arrived fairly dry. It's just not available in local pet shops. Eventually the whole stem started to rot. I can imagine I will buy this again as I use up the seeds. They still floated around for a bit but eventually settled to the bottom evenly. Proper care will take care of that.

"Gorgeous plants!"

The sticky glue like glop it grows in was not a problem. I didn't realize it was 2 packages and there was so many in each package. On the plus side I can use the moss as living string to tie other plants to things. This is day 1& 2 Will post an update over time. A bit smaller than advertised but they'll grow. Would definitely recommend this product ESPECIALLY if you're new to aquatic plants. Copper is toxic to inverts like snails and shrimp.

Cut all leaves but 3 of them and its doing better, see some new growth this morning. I'll post an update in about a month. The moss is covering up the wires so you can no longer see them. Placed in the tank and after a week leaves started to turn to mush.

Placed in the tank and after a week leaves started to turn to mush. Older leaves were purple in color and new leaves were green. I can imagine I will buy this again as I use up the seeds. I posted new pictures to show the growth but I did move some plants around. They've been in my tank 24 hours and are starting to adjust well. This allowed the seeds to disperse. This is not my first time ordering from the seller.

Java Fern and Vallisneria, two of the easiest plants to have. I didn't realize it was 2 packages and there was so many in each package. Attached are pictures and video from day one thru day 21.
