Great plant for background and mid-ground. Newer leaves will show a nice red rusty color while older leaves tend to be more green. This plant seems like it'd be pretty prolific if given the right conditions. The plant that came had some buds on them which I think were actually seed pods because I am starting to see a ton of tiny little shoots of something in my tank. It can also be propagated by cutting below the nodes and the buried nodes will also throw out new leaves as well (with very nice color). I think I will trim the plant pretty low to keep it bushier since it is a stem plant. One pot is probably 5 times what I need for a 10g.
I purchased this with the impression that this scarlet temple was Alternanthera reineckii 'rosaefolia' according to a quick google search but when I received the plant it was labeled as Hygrophila corymbosa. Maybe adding this to the description would be helpful to future customers.
I just recently started buying from Aquarium Co-op, and so far I am very satisfied with their products. My most recent purchase was the fertilizer and my plants are doing great. Thank you very much, and i look forward to buying from you guys again.
Arrived in my fluval 3.0 light box. Wrapped in damp paper towel and a plastic bag. Plant is in eco smart substrate bought at Petco sorry for that but I didn’t want to ship 20 pounds of something cross country. Along with the fluva 3.0 the plants in my tank are growing fast. I’ve gotten 6 new leaves on this plant in the last 20 days. No iron,co2, or ferts of any kind
Received my two plants very quickly. Shipped with heat pack and arrived in good condition. Doing well in my planted tank, lots of new growth. Very happy.
Less than two weeks after planting it they were already showing new growth. And a month later all stems are not only alive, but thriving.
One half of the plants I received, melted within a week. The other remaining plants are still thriving and are growing fine. Keeping my fingers crossed.
The plants came in beautiful. I love the packaging. I am very satisfied with aquarium-coop. I will definitely order again.
Came in very healthy even after being held in USPS facility for a few extra days due the shutdowns at the moment. New leaves sprouting already even after just two weeks. Gotta trim it up to fill in my tank but only need a pot or two for a 10g but always more is better haha
plant arrived real thick and jubilant. Coulda prolly made three plantings, did make two. I'm new and happy to just keep a plant alive. Arrived better than I will ever be able to keep it. Danged if I cant grow snails from every order tho
