I loved the look of this plant, so I thought I'd give it a go. It arrived healthy and well packaged, but after about two weeks in my tank, it died off and I was left with just one tiny stem. I'm not sure why it didn't flourish in my tank, I planted it with root tabs, but sadly, it just didn't do well, which is a shame as it's a very attractive background plant.

Best-condition plants I ever got. Melted in the tank for a bit, then perked up with liquid carbon injections. Seems to be doing well now.

Plant arrived looking healthy, bit of damage in transit but nothing unsightly. This plant is known to stress easy when first introduced to an aquarium, and despite my best efforts that's exactly what happened. Thankfully a month on its now starting to recover.

Another beautiful plant that arrived in great condition from AQ. One of the pots had come loose during delivery and so some of the stems suffered a bit. This one is a bit tricky and the smallest stems have melted but the bigger ones seem to be doing well, time will tell.

Fantastic!! Made my purchase Monday and received them Tuesday morning. All the plants are in fantastic condition and look beautiful in my nano aquarium, I will defiantly buy from aquarium gardens again in the future.
