This plant came looking BEAUTIFUL n has gotten better every day!!
I ordered one pot of pearlweed from Aquarium Co-Op. This was my first purchase from the website. I've watched Cory on YouTube for quite a while and when I had the need for a foreground plant, I decided to give it a shot.
Honestly, with priority ground shipping I was a little worried about the possible condition of the plant upon arrival. Not to mention, I live in Ohio and it was mid July. It wasn't a short trip down the road and was definitely not the best time of year to box up a plant and ship it.
What I received was a very bright, very healthy, pearlweed plant. I was pleasantly surprised. It was still wet, wrapped in wet towels.
Honestly, it was in better shape than anything I've found grown submerged in my area. I'm fortunate enough to have a LARGE independent fish store just down the road from me. Even their plants are not as healthy. I think Petco goes without saying, their plants look horrid unless you catch them the day they come in - and even those don't look great and you have the danger of bba and pests.
But wait, there's more! I would have given this a 5* review just based on the great condition it arrived in. But I didn't get any melt at all, no discoloration, nothing. That peral weed started laying down in small sections the next day, sending shooters.
I've never had a better experience buying aquatic plants. I just purchased over $100 in ADA, and I'm hardscaping my new 29g setup this weekend.
You'll be receiving a sizeable order from me so that I can get that bad boy planted. You have 100% earned my future business.
I am not sure what did I do wrong, but not a single plant survived. I bought one Aponogeton Ulvaceus and a batch of Pearl Weed. The Aponogeton Ulvaceus is looking gorgeous. Its big, green, wavy, everything I was looking for. I was hoping for some carpet so wanted some pearl weed. I planted them all, but one by one, they all died of or got uprooted. Since there were many plants, I was hoping for at least one that survived, but none did.
USPS messed up my shipment, and it came 2 days later than normal. Plants still looked great, and are coming around in my tank!
Item received as described. Sure beats what others want to charge to ship to Alaska! Would buy from again.
