I planted on 11/7 and it took a couple of days to adjust to my water conditions. However, after the adjustment, this plant grows like crazy. Compared to my other plants (crypts, DHG) this was the quickest to adjust. By 12/6, stems reached the top of the water. Recommend for a background plant that sucks up nitrates and provides cover for little fish and other inverts
Very impressed with everything. I have ordered from most every vendor in aquarium plants and GLA quality is unmatched in several ways. Packaging was obviously on GLA's priority, they A+ that. Quality of plants was like nothing Ive every experienced. They were completely perfect, how do you guys do this? It was as if they were in suspended animation and never left the greenhouse, just perfect plants and generous proportions. I purchased a lot of plants from GLA for my new aquascape and they are all ding great. GLA may not have all the varieties but what they lack in variety they make up in quality everything. Ive also noticed as I waited to make my review the list of plants continues to expand. Its much larger than when I placed my order, Kudos to GLA for increasing the menu options. Im forever a loyal customer, never in my experience of buying live plants have I ever seen a shipment arrive looking the way mine did. A++
