In great condition when arrived and has, with CO2 injection and EI ferts grown exponentially in the three weeks after planting! I have cut many stems and utilised elsewhere in the tank.

Great plants, super healthy, nice colour. Arrived promptly, well packed and potted. Ordered too many so be awre you get several stems per pot. They've already grown 2cm or so after 3-4 days. Feeding TNC Complete and CO2 with Tetra Complete substrate.
