    Great quality upon Delivery

    Posted by Scott Madrigal-Silver on 19 Jan 2022

    I live in Alaska so the fact they were able to send these plants from Florida to my state in one piece is honestly impressive. Delivery is as fast as I could have expected and my floaters got to me alive (all be it a little drier than I would have liked, but I understand the difficulty of transport). Will probably be ordering more from here.

    Plants arrived healthy and intact. Only lost 2 small plants through the winter travels! They are adapting nicely to my 10 gallon betta tank and are starting to grow! I'm excited to see when they flower!

    Ordered the 4 oz cup and was highly pleased. The cup was packed full of the plants. The shipping was quick and the quality was good. Nice color and strong plants. They are flourishing in my aquarium and the perfect accent to the aesthetics.

    Nice portion, divided among several tanks. Algae growth is significantly reduced since adding these.

    This was my first order and I was impressed with the entire process. My plants arrived early and are all very healthy. This was a great addition to my other floaters.

    Super cute

    Posted by Kel on 24 Nov 2021

    I fell in love with these as soon as I took them out of the package. One container had surprisingly more clumps than I thought it would. Many even had little flowers. A few clumps had good length roots already.

    These floaters are so pretty!! Came in great condition and so far no issues with snails (I've had them in the tank for a little over a week). Couldn't be happier!
