Doing Very Well - 45g High Tech October 23, 2016
Reviewer: Benjamin from WALTHAM, MA United States  
This is the first stem plant I have bought from this site. All my other purchases have been tissues cultured. I will say that this plant gave me hope to buy other stem plants from the site. The color is amazing and the portions received were good. Expect this plant to loose its bottom leaves when planted in substrate. Do not clip this plant until you see small root chutes originating from the base of this plant. I am overall happy with this purchase.

Beware: The shipping prices fluctuate on the daily. When researching what I wanted I was calculating shipping costs. Shipping costs would fluctuate on the daily between $17-$33 with the exact same product in the cart.  I think this is ridiculous. I ended up just waiting till it dropped to the lowest I had seen that week, then made the purchase.

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!!!

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.

Color is beautiful August 22, 2014
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.
