"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.

Uniheat Final Thoughts

"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.

"I put them in the pond."

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. Would definitely recommend this product ESPECIALLY if you're new to aquatic plants. This is day 1& 2 Will post an update over time. Of course it's just a twisted clump of it now. Overall, at the moment, I'm pleased with my purchase. I just wanted to see if it worked and it did.

"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.

"They came very quickly."

Roots were already growing so planted in the tank. Such a wonderful and easy way to add whimsy to a tank. Plants arrived in a clear sealed bag. These ferns are the only plants in my aquarium so i KNOW it's from them. Can't wait to see how well it does. But Java fern is suppose to grow fast so I am excited. Cut all leaves but 3 of them and its doing better, see some new growth this morning.

Uniheat Final Thoughts

"It is still doing great!"

Can't wait to see how well it does. No leaves have rotted and doing very well. I placed the bulk of the moss in the webbing and twisted it up to hold it in place. Java fern is doing ok, it is still getting used to the tank. Placed in the tank and after a week leaves started to turn to mush. I got these to dry start a carpet in my new nano tank. I did a dry start and followed the instructions as directed very meticulously.

"Doing great!"

The plants did all arrive dry so I am sure there will be some melting. 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. Seller even wrote a detailed page of instructions to care for the plants. I stuck the other pack in freezer dont think ill need anytime soon. Over night on the 7th day it sprouted all over the tank. Overall, at the moment, I'm pleased with my purchase.

Uniheat Final Thoughts

"It makes a mess."

In my low tech tank it grows slowly enough that it would be easy to control. I treat it like my other swords and place a fert tab under the gravel. And the amount of plants you get is by far the best deal. I posted before and after pictures of both aquariums. Marble Queen, So hard to find information on its aquatic form. The sticky glue like glop it grows in was not a problem. However this is not the plants themselves fault.

"Has new growth on it."

Treating it just like my other sword plants. Make sure you have a cleared area to plant. I absolutely love how this plant looks in my tank. I posted new pictures to show the growth but I did move some plants around. After looking around I went ahead and decided to give these a try. But it's not a brilliant green but any stretch of the imagination. Very good quality plants at an amazing price, roots looked great.

"Or SO IT SEEMED."

Older leaves were purple in color and new leaves were green. Picture shows my new plants actually coating my old plants. I placed the bulk of the moss in the webbing and twisted it up to hold it in place. These ferns are the only plants in my aquarium so i KNOW it's from them. Just received my plants yesterday and I'm very happy with them. No leaves have rotted and doing very well. It's not brow either, just a brownish green if that's possible.

"The plants are great."

But Java fern is suppose to grow fast so I am excited. All are very healthy for having been in the mail. I stuck the other pack in freezer dont think ill need anytime soon. I planted them in planters for my betta to rest on and he loves them. After looking around I went ahead and decided to give these a try. These ferns are the only plants in my aquarium so i KNOW it's from them. Put weight on it, which came with them, placed in tank.

"One last note."

Can't wait to see how well it does. I could not get them to grow at first, but that was my fault. Good root start on the plant healthy and thriving so far. No leaves have rotted and doing very well. I divided it between three tanks and all three divisions are looking good. DO NOT BUY unless you have an established quarantine tank, and quarantine them first. Cleaned them up and placed in the tank.

"So far so good."

No roots yet, but still green and no evidence of dying. This is day 1& 2 Will post an update over time. After a good month in my aquarium, the brown dried sections did not improve. My tank is a medium light, low-tech 55g set up. The package is great, they are resealable. The plants are awesome and I got way more than I was expecting. So I have a few more Java Ferns starting from this mother plant.

"Great for tall aquariums!"

DO NOT BUY unless you have an established quarantine tank, and quarantine them first. Within 7 days I had an even beautiful carpet! After a good month in my aquarium, the brown dried sections did not improve. The plants arrived in Hawaii from California within 48 hours and looked amazing. I really didn't think this was going to be a great buy. Make sure you have a cleared area to plant. This package comes with TONS of seeds!

"Has new growth on it."

Can see where a leaf has been plucked. The moss is covering up the wires so you can no longer see them. This time to add variety I ordered the FL bundle, and am once again glad I did. No roots yet, but still green and no evidence of dying. Overall, at the moment, I'm pleased with my purchase. I did a dry start and followed the instructions as directed very meticulously. They still floated around for a bit but eventually settled to the bottom evenly.

"I'll keep you posted."

Planted the roots and left the rhizome on top. I got these to dry start a carpet in my new nano tank. I can imagine I will buy this again as I use up the seeds. It's not brow either, just a brownish green if that's possible. Doing great so far and placed a fert tab in the gravel. Hygrophila Araguaya, arrived with 5-6 stems with a weight. I don't know if after the ParaGard treatment if I should treat it in an algaecide.

"I could not be happier!"

Get the seeds exactly where you want them before adding water. It's not sticky once it sprouted, on day 2 for me. I guess the heated water finally got them to grow. Roots were already growing so planted in the tank. Was able to get 2 babies off of the stem already. Red Melon Sword, arrived healthy and green. Marble Queen, So hard to find information on its aquatic form.

"Seems pretty hardy."

I will update again on the status of the plant customer service was also great! But Java fern is suppose to grow fast so I am excited. I know much thought was placed in picking these plants. This allowed the seeds to disperse. My fish and I are very happy with this purchase. Sprouted after 3 days in a Pyrex planted in existing aqurium substrate. My tank is a medium light, low-tech 55g set up.

"They came very quickly."

I'm ok with this since I have 3 assassin snails. I don't know if after the ParaGard treatment if I should treat it in an algaecide. My fish and I are very happy with this purchase. So took it out and trimmed most of the leaves off and left a couple on each stem. If I remember I will will send photos and update this posting. Then, before planting, dip them in the bucket for a few minutes. Get the seeds exactly where you want them before adding water.
