came in perfect .. was able to get about 5-6 plants out of one pot .. very nice
I ordered 3 pots of Parva specifically, and they came in converted and very healthy. If you are looking for a low light foreground option, this is a great choice!
My review for my order overall:
Ordered 9 pots of various plants and some other misc. dry goods. Everything went smoothly with shipping and the plants looked wonderful upon arrival. Wrapping each plant in wet paper towel before bagging it ensured that the foliage didn't dry out during shipping whatsoever. I am thoroughly satisfied with the attention to detail and the fact that they take the time to convert plants before selling them. That's just not something I've found at many retailers. After receiving my order, I got the plants unwrapped and put into a tank as quickly as I could. My logic behind that was to allow them to acclimate to my water and get their strength back before deciding where to plant them. I believe this process paid off, resulting in less stress for the plants - or at least mediating that stress over a longer period of time. I haven't experienced any melting back after almost 2 weeks time, and don't expect to as all of the plants have sent out plant-lets/runners since being planted or did while still in the pots. I highly recommend Aquarium Co-op. Thanks for reading!
They came packed great and looking fantastic. They are now melting back and putting out new growth. Can't wait until they are all converted.
Plant came in perfect condition, and was shipped super fast
Just like all the other plants that I have ordered from the Co-op, the crypt parva were in perfect shape with good strong roots - I was able to separate them into several small plants that I used in my newest planted DIY mushroom aquascape. The tiger lotus at the right end of the picture is also from the Co-op - I have ordered several of those and they are also fantastic. Although very small at first, the crypt parva plants have already shown noticeable growth in the first few days after planting them in this tank. I am very pleased and expect that both the parva and the lotus will grow out very nicely and look absolutely beautiful. Thanks again to the Co-op!
