VIEW POLICY
Alternanthera Ficoidea 'Red' is a terrarium, vivarium, or bog plant that is sometimes used as aquatic plant decoration even though it's not a true aquatic plant. Under a proper environment, it can only be submerged for several months. After that, it should be grown emerged for a few months again so they can restore the energy they lose before it has the ability and strength to adapt and survive to underwater life for a period of time.
Because of the ability to survive underwater for a long period of time, a lot of hobbyists used this plant as an alternative for other true aquatic plants because they claimed it can survive or even grow a few inches taller and develop roots in their aquarium longer than some of the other true aquatic plants.
When grow emerged, above water. It should be kept in a consistently high humidity with wet soil. Especially when they are in the recovery stage or when their environment is changed from underwater to above water.

        WHAT WE CAN'T GUARANTEE

        Even though our plants are very clean, but we can't guarantee they will be 100% pest-free because we cannot be responsible for your aquarium. Please use it at your own risk. We recommended all customers rinse the plants with clean water and quarantine them before use.

        However, plants in tissue culture will be 100% free from pests, algae and never have been contacting with any aquarium.

        1. Due to the nature of the product. We don't guarantee our plants will be pests free. ( snails, algae, hitchhikers )
        2. We don't guarantee our plants will be free of pesticides. We use homemade, organic pesticides in our greenhouse to control pests. We do not use pesticides that contain copper. Copper is toxic to invertebrates such as aquatic snails, crabs, shrimps, etc
        3. We don't guarantee your aquarium success or are responsible for your aquarium inhabitant including but not limited to fish, shrimp, snail, turtle, etc. So please quarantine all plants when use!
        4. Unless specific, we don't guarantee aquatic plants will be grow emerged or submerge.
        We kindly request that you familiarize yourself with your state's regulations concerning restricted plants, as we are committed to not sending any plants that may be restricted in your jurisdiction. Additionally, we urge you not to release any plants into the wild or waterways, as it can cause significant harm to the local ecosystem by potentially introducing invasive species and disrupting the natural ecological balance.

        Came in healthy and great BUT…

        This is my 4th order with APF and they always do a wonderful job with shipping. Everything came in healthy and I have no complaints.

        That being said, please read the description of this plant before ordering. It is not a fully aquatic plant (and it clearly states it in the description, I just didn’t read it before buying) and I’m not sure how well it will do if you’re intending to grow it fully submersed. Mine have already lost a lot of leaves and aren’t looking the best.

        All of that being said, I take responsibility for not reading and understanding this particular plant before buying and will just simply order some others from APF should these plants fail and I have the need.
