Very Happy December 28, 2015
Reviewer: Michael Webb from IN United States  
Received 6 stems of about 7 inches in length. Plants were well packaged. Used professional plant anchors with 3 stems per anchor. Plants are doing well even under non optimum lighting conditions.

2nd times a charm! June 7, 2015
Reviewer: Chris Markes from Beaverton, OR United States  
My first order of these resulted a the majority of them being TKO'd after a week in my tank.

My second order, things improved drastically!

Here is what I did:

1) Order those plant anchor things!

2) Use them! (2-3 stems per anchor)

3) Make sure you plant them in sand, not gravel.

4) Make sure the sand is not overly compressed (check a day or two later, after everything settles)

5) When your order arrives, chop off the spongy part of the stems and be choosy on which ones you put in the tank as not ALL are going to make it.  They won't sprout new roots from the formerly chopped spongy bottom part of the stem!!

6) Buy some sort of in sand fertilizer tabs

7) LED Fluval or correct kelvin temp specific to growing plants (the cheaper LEDs are too blue/low output/belong in a landfill!)

Hope this helps!!!

Chris

Nice color December 20, 2014
Reviewer: Anne Barr from Houston, TX United States  
I ordered a bunch of plants and they all arrived yesterday. I wasted no time setting up my tank and planting them in.  the Limnophila is a really nice plant with nice pink and purple color. I got about 6 long stems in my bunch. Some of the lower leaves were a bit melted but the main stems and tops are in good health.  All the plants in my order were packed very carefully and arrived in good shape. I'm sure the cooler weather helps with the transport of more delicate items.

Reviewer: Stacey from Pasadena, MD United States  
So far so good.  The color is amazing a purply-pink that really stands out on the black back of my tank.
