In the heat of the summer in Southern Georgia. I received this bulb in great condition. It's in my tank and is just getting started.
The one that arrived alive is currently thriving! I am seeing fresh growth and it looks very happy in it's new home. The other, I didn't bury right away as I couldn't tell which part would put out leaves...
3 days later, it is starting to be overcome with fungus and what looks like beard algae. Pulled it from the aquarium and tossed it in the garbage. Three bucks isn't enough to cause a fuss over, I will probably order another one when they come back in stock.
The bulb was huge with multiple beautiful leaves. The packing method far exceeded my expectations. I immediately ordered more plants from these guys! Great stuff!
This bulb came with multiple leaves. Absolutely beautiful!!
It's thriving in both tanks, one with eco complette the other with inert sand (easy green root tabs and easy green liquid ferts).
and more like 6 to 8 leaves! One week in and this plant doing so good - all for $3 bucks! I would have been just as happy with no leaves - I got a bonus :)
