    These arrived healthy and strong. I've had them in my betta tank for a few weeks now and they are growing like crazy! So many tiny roots, perfect for cuttings and propagating.

    To begin with this is my favorite plant and for it to have arrived late (due to boston processing center) it was in amazing shape and so beautiful I truly trust modern aquarium best plants in my area

    Arrived late with FedEx, but other than a few yellow leaves it was in good condition. The plant took off in my tank and I am loving the added brightness/color!

    Good size and healthy

    Nice and tall plants and they're fun to look at. The lack of roots at the bottom is kind of weird when it comes to sticking them in the gravel, but it's not really an issue. packaging and shipping was all great.

    I received these last week and they look so good. There were several stems in each bunch, they arrived last Wednesday and they seem to be doing very well since being planted! I'm very happy with them.

    I love these plants. Probably one of my top 5 favorites to plant. Especially when they grow and spread (which is incredibly fast) they just make the tank look so full of life. I saw significant growth in just 14 days and bought another bunch.

    Cardamine Lyrata known commonly as Japanese cress and Chinese ivy

    Still growing strong after weeks. Arrived healthy and stayed that way (no melting). It's a good value.
