"Would buy again."

No leaves have rotted and doing very well. Cleaned them up and placed in the tank. I divided it between three tanks and all three divisions are looking good. This time I just put it all over the bottom. Of course it's just a twisted clump of it now. I guess the heated water finally got them to grow. I could not get them to grow at first, but that was my fault.

"Came with lots of leaves."

I posted before and after pictures of both aquariums. Doing great so far and placed a fert tab in the gravel. I'll post an update in about a month. The plants are awesome and I got way more than I was expecting. The package is great, they are resealable. I made a light wire webbing out of light weight wire. The plants picture is now, almost 7 months after I received it.

"Excellent Experience."

I did a dry start and followed the instructions as directed very meticulously. The plants did all arrive dry so I am sure there will be some melting. No roots yet, but still green and no evidence of dying. I placed the bulk of the moss in the webbing and twisted it up to hold it in place. Fast shipping, impressed with product. It's just not available in local pet shops. Anubias Barteri, came with 3 leaves, tall and healthy.

Uniheat First Impressions

"Absolutely recommended!"

This time to add variety I ordered the FL bundle, and am once again glad I did. Java Fern and Vallisneria, two of the easiest plants to have. Such a wonderful and easy way to add whimsy to a tank. Roots were already growing so planted in the tank. This allowed the seeds to disperse. If I ever make another tank, I'm ordering from here again. Altlandsberg Sword, very beautiful plant.

"There was no heat pack."

I'll post an update in about a month. In my low tech tank it grows slowly enough that it would be easy to control. The plants did all arrive dry so I am sure there will be some melting. It's part of it so do the dry start method. But on the marimo moss balls and even some of teh hardscape it was attached to. All plants were healthy and in great condition.

"It is my fish."

Has not grown, has not died, it is just there. I felt like this was a great price for this plant. Get the seeds exactly where you want them before adding water. The moss is covering up the wires so you can no longer see them. Copper is toxic to inverts like snails and shrimp. Within 7 days I had an even beautiful carpet! I'm ok with this since I have 3 assassin snails.

"More than pleased."

It even stuck to the corys who had to brush against a rock to get it off. Get the seeds exactly where you want them before adding water. Was able to get 2 babies off of the stem already. Transfered into the aqurium on day 6. I felt like this was a great price for this plant. But I decide to keep it and put it in my fish tank. All plants were healthy and in great condition.

"Hopefully it will grow."

So took it out and trimmed most of the leaves off and left a couple on each stem. Lobelia Cardinalis, arrived in perfect condition. I did trim some of the plants back to remove old leaves so only new ones are left. I liked the fact the seeds didn't go all over the place. Sprouted after 3 days in a Pyrex planted in existing aqurium substrate. Really perfect for my first tank plant. I'm ok with this since I have 3 assassin snails.

"The betta fish loves it."

Red Melon Sword, arrived healthy and green. They still floated around for a bit but eventually settled to the bottom evenly. If it grows as expected, I might be supplying local shops with it before long. So took it out and trimmed most of the leaves off and left a couple on each stem. Placed in the tank and after a week leaves started to turn to mush. Sprouted after 3 days in a Pyrex planted in existing aqurium substrate. Overall, at the moment, I'm pleased with my purchase.

"It'll get there."

The plants arrived in Hawaii from California within 48 hours and looked amazing. I feel a little goes a long way too, so these two packages would plant a TON. You can see my cory is obsessed with it. It's alive and seems to be growing. I would note they did not come with any instructions. All plants were healthy and in great condition. I posted before and after pictures of both aquariums.

"All healthy."

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.

Hopefully, this will help set what you will experience as well. I haven't noticed any snails either could help that the plants arrived fairly dry.

"Added water on day 8."

This is not my first time ordering from the seller. The Java fern has a ton of little baby java ferns on it now. I absolutely love how this plant looks in my tank. So I have a few more Java Ferns starting from this mother plant. But it's not a brilliant green but any stretch of the imagination. Photo was taken on 8 days after receiving seeds. I did trim some of the plants back to remove old leaves so only new ones are left.

It's alive and seems to be growing. This is my first review posting ever! This time I just put it all over the bottom. I just wanted to see if it worked and it did. The package is great, they are resealable. On the plus side I can use the moss as living string to tie other plants to things. I planted them in planters for my betta to rest on and he loves them.
