Box of Low Light Plant Package
It shipped out on Monday and I got it Wednesday. Every plant was packaged and wrapped up in wet paper towels. I received a banana plant which is growing quite steady. I got an anubias Nana that I glued to a piece of wood. I got a red wendtii that melted like crazy but it's doing good now. I got a Dwarf aquarium Lily the red is a nice color. Crypt lucen that's doing good. A crypt lucen. The Java fern is the brightest green I've ever seen. The water lettuce is a nice little floater plant. The only plant that isn't doing well is wisteria. All the leaves have came off? I planted it idk if I was supposed to. But all in all it was a good haul and I'll definitely buy again. I noticed the first few days I had the lights on too long and noticed some damage. Got a timer to give them 8 hours a day and they are appreciating it dearly.
I live in Ohio, I was worried the cold weather would kill the plants, it was in the low 20's when the package arrived, to my surprise here were no heat pack, but the the plants were alive and looking great!
I purchased a medium (8 plant) low light plant package for my 20 gallon tank. They were proactive and contacted me to discus when to ship as they wanted to avoid the package getting delayed in route due to holidays. They shipped promptly when it was safe to do so and my package arrived 2 days later. Everything looked great and was packed very well. I received 5 plants in pots (2 of which were easily divided into about 8-10 individual plants each), and 3 different bulb plants (3 bulbs each). I planted everything in my tank and now after 5 days everything still looks great and most of the bulbs are sprouted and growing well.
Thanks aquarium co-op for making my first planted tank a success!
(Picture was taken right after planting so can't really see the bulb plants yet, everything but the anubias was from this package.)
This product is an amazing deal! I recently set up my first planted aquarium and wanted to be sure I got all low light/easy plants. I already bought a few live plants from some local stores; however, after watching several of Cory's videos, and seeing how much he cares for his plants and his customers, I decided to try his low light box package.
When the box arrived it was immediately clear that I made a great choice. All plants were packaged very well, and the selection of plants were great. Some anubias, wisteria, banana plant, and several other plants made the box a great deal for the price! Another amazing thing to see was how healthy and good looking the plants were! If you are worried about ordering online (Trust me, I always worry about horrible packaging, damage, poor service), don't worry at all with this place! Even with the tough journey these plants went through the last couple days, they look so much better in the tank than the plants that I picked myself at two separate local stores.
The only negative I found was that not all the plants were labeled. I think three plants were labelled, and some were still obvious to tell the species, so it's not really that big of a negative.
In the end, this deal was amazing and I will definitely recommend to anyone.
I ordered a Low Light Plant Package in the 18 plant large size. We were in the middle of a cold snap when it was delivered and it was delivered a day before the tracking showed the package coming. This made the box sit out in the cold for several hours since we weren't expecting it. Cory and his team had packed the box well enough the all though the plants were chilly, none were frozen. I took all if the plants out of the box and let them warm up overnight to my home's ambient temperature while still wrapped in their individual packages. I put them into a tank the following morning and have had no issues.
As I was unwrapping the plants to go into the tank I saw that there were a package of 3 onion bulbs and a pack of 3 dwarf lily bulbs. I thought to myself, "That's where they get ya, there is 6 of the plants." but much to my pleasant surprise, each package of bulbs only counted as 1 plant! These folks really take care of you!
Order these plants knowing that you will not be short changed and will have well packaged high quality plant stock delivered to you that will turn your tank into a thriving ecosystem where you can enjoy your fish while they act like they do in the wild.
I was blown away by the size of the plants and how much arrived. These are NOT the small portions you get from chain stores. The plants we received were large and the portions were generous. Very happy with what was delivered. Highly recommend!
I got my first plants recently from Aquarium Co-op, and when I went in, I was asked if I had any questions, and when I did have questions Cory answered them! Very impressed!!!!
Know pretty much zero about keeping plants, but I watch Cory's YouTube channel and decided to give this a go. Got the box of low light plants and some easy green. Feeling confident in being successful. Thanks to Cory and the rest of the Co-Op crew! Taco Union!!
Plants arrived well packed and looking beautiful and healthy. Some Sword plants, a couple different Anubias forms and a Banana plant - my Bettas love them.
These plants are great !! Everything was quick and easy !! CNt wait to buy more !!
Unpacking the plants was fun and the plants were awesome. This is my first planted tank and it looks amazing. I will be buying more from aquarium coop as I learn about what is happiest in my tank. Very pleased
I loved the variety of low-light plants at a great price! Each plant was carefully cradled in damp paper towels and then in a plastic bag with rubber band--no leakage at all. Each plant was large and lush--healthy-looking. I'm very glad I tried this package!
Ordered this package awhile back. Everything arrived quickly and in great shape. This is my first time doing a planted tank so I was a little worried that I would end up killing all of the plants. So far I've only had issues with one of the plants and I'm quite sure it's growers error. I would definitely recommend this package and any of the other plants. Keep up the good work.
I just wanted to say I love all of your videos. The plant pack I ordered look awesome in the tank. I love the plants you picked. They were packaged with care and looked awesome. They also had labels on what each one was. The was really fast and appreciate how expeditiously my order was filled. Keep up the great work and thank you Cory for your love of the hobby.
I got a great variety of plants in this box! One on the plants came with a tag that said it required medium light, so we'll see how it does in a low light aquarium. So far, so good! No melt back, no broken stems or leaves on any of the plants! There were plenty of plants in a great variety to add more foliage to four planted tanks. I'm really happy with this box, but more importantly, my fish are happier!
I am setting up a 75 gallon planted tank and started aquascaping with low growing crypts but wanted to add some height, so I ordered the low light package and am very pleased with the result. Cory picked out a nice selection of plants. All arrived healthy and are doing great. I am only ordering from here from now on!
Quick to ship and quick to arrive, the package was quite secure when I received and and there was excellent variety in the plants and they were all in very nice condition! Can't wait for them to really start filling out the tank!
I at first bought the 8 and thought that was good but not enough for all my tanks so then bought 18.
Never thought it would take so long finding out which tanks to put them in and then planting. I had to place half in just a random tank.
So much plants to research and best part is everything seems to be good which gives me time to find the best tank for them in the end
Plants were shipped and received quickly. Plants were in great condition upon arrival, only two were unlabeled and not immediately identifiable to me (a complete newbie) with the help of the site and videos. Cory was very responsive to email inquiries and happily identified the mystery plants as well as helped make sure I knew the proper planting of each item. It's been a bumpy start up (first tank, *I* made beginner mistakes) but the plants all seem to be doing reasonably well. I see new growth on most all of them and was prepared for the 'melt-back' i'm seeing while they get acclimated.
Short version: A great product and a shop-owner who genuinely cares about the hobby and people makes this a smart buy and I don't expect to look anywhere else for plants.
Great looking plants and fast shipping!
Can't beat this deal, great quality plants, much better than at petsmart and such. They're cheaper per plant than my big box stores and the customer service can't be beat. I've got 2 plant packages and love it, and they are hand picked by an expert. Can't beat it
Quick shipping, Great Plants, will order again!
Just received this package today and all the plants look very nice. I liked not knowing what I was getting in the assortment. My daughter and I had fun unwrapping each plant. Will for sure be ordering more plants from Aquarium Coop.
I'm relatively new to planted aquariums in general and I was always a bit over whelmed at the thought of starting up a planted tank. I think this low-light package is a great value and it can help jump-start a new planted aquarium in one fell swoop. I was really happy with how the plants all fit into my 20 gallon long aquarium. Nearly every plant you can see in the picture attached to this review came out of the plant package. Compared to the tiny and pricey plants found at the bog box stores local to me, these plants were a steal. So far everything is doing great and after nearly a week of being in my tank I've had hardly any melting leaves and I'm already starting to see new growth on a few plants, which is really encouraging to someone new to keeping aquarium plants!
plants arrived and are looking good. the bulbs you put in my package are sprouting after only three days in my tank. Thanks !
Wanted some plants but never sure what I will like it. So ordered the low light plant package great and healthy, variety of plants. Very happy with the whole order from start to finish.
Loved the low light plant assortment! I'm not usually one to order "vendor's choice" style, but I wasn't in need of anything specific and wanted a surprise. The variety was great and everything arrived in amazing condition!
