This is the exception to the rule. Usually plants come in nice and healthy and stay that way. Came in healthy with multiple pieces, but after about a week, it started melting down. Melted down to nothing within a week after the melting process started.

Great plant

This plant is great if you want something that looks different or out of place in a tank. Received the plant quite fast after ordering; plant was very healthy when I received it and had zero melt back when planted in my aquascape. Over a week later, there has been a lot of new growth. One thing, however, is I wish I would have done more research on this specific specie of plant, as the more it grows the more space it takes up horizontally. The leaves grow quite long out from the stem and get tangled in some of my other plants. Overall: a good plant for beginners.

If I could only have one plant, this would be it!

I absolutely love this plant. I love it so much, I’ve ordered many of them several times for all my tanks. It’s a hardy little plant, all have arrived healthy with a bright green color, and - surprise- all of them have lived without any melting. It’s a great value. You always get several plants in one, and each one is so full and lush you can spread them around your tanks without losing that look of fullness. I was amazed at how great my betta tank looked once I added this plant. And the fish love to swim through this plant. I’m in the process of setting up another tank - a quarantine and fry tank - and I just bought 4 more of these. It really Gives your tank a “professional” and very natural look to it. You just cannot go wrong with this plant. Interestingly, I’ve not seen it in any of the local stores, so thank you, Cory, for making this plant available online!
