"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.

"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.

"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.

SunGrow Final Thoughts

"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.

"There was no heat pack."

It even stuck to the corys who had to brush against a rock to get it off. So took it out and trimmed most of the leaves off and left a couple on each stem. Before you buy, do some research on the plants you will receive. I did a dry start and followed the instructions as directed very meticulously. Java Fern and Vallisneria, two of the easiest plants to have. Really perfect for my first tank plant. A lot of information online, came with 5-6 stems and healthy.

"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.

Sprouted after 3 days in a Pyrex planted in existing aqurium substrate. Transfered into the aqurium on day 6. DO NOT BUY unless you have an established quarantine tank, and quarantine them first. Put weight on it, which came with them, placed in tank. So I have a few more Java Ferns starting from this mother plant. Some need more work then others to get them established.

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. One month after first dry starting my tank. Proper care will take care of that. After a good month in my aquarium, the brown dried sections did not improve. After that it seemed to grow right before my eyes. Roots were already growing so planted in the tank.

"It seems to be growing."

Older leaves were purple in color and new leaves were green. I really didn't think this was going to be a great buy. I liked the fact the seeds didn't go all over the place. The Java fern has a ton of little baby java ferns on it now. Then, before planting, dip them in the bucket for a few minutes. This time to add variety I ordered the FL bundle, and am once again glad I did. But Java fern is suppose to grow fast so I am excited.
