Arrived in very good condition


A beautiful red stem plant. Came healthy and a good size.

Sort of slow long melt

I've had this plant for about 7 weeks and while some root sprouted on the side it is mostly otherwise breaking down and falling apart and showing almost no growth. This is in a 29 gallon aquarium with about 3 1/2 inch of inert black substrate. The fish load is moderate. The substrate is sprinkled with root-tabs and a very small amount of liquid fertilize is added. Light is plant 3.0 24 inch. There is a bit of shading from the floating hornworth which might be part of the issue - not sure. Still disappointed it is now beginning to melt (I always wait a bit to review plants). I can't really say any stem plants have done that well in any of my tanks but this one is doing a bit worse than the others hence the low rating.

Scarlet Temple

Purchased one bundle and was so pleased with the look that I purchased an additional three to create a bush effect. Anchoring my left corner and contrasted by Ryuoh stones on simple river gravel scattered temples and anubus. I can see using this again especially in smaller tanks, I am currently stocking and planting out a 100 gallon tank and will need more.
