      Micro Sword - bare root

      Ordered (40) so with buy 2 get 1 offer, received (60).

      Each portion came in an approximately 2x3 plastic bag. All plants were very healthy and plump. Split each portion in 1/2 to fit in my temporary holding device (see pic).

      So far after several days, plants still look extremely healthy with zero die-back or melt.

      Great Buy!

      I ordered this fairly recently and bought the rooted bunch.I was amazed by the quality.I will definitely be buying more in the near future.

      Carpeting nicely.

      Arrived healthy with good roots. Spreading quickly and becoming a thick carpet. Pictures attached of when it was initially planted vs 3 weeks of growth. All plants pictures are from aquarium plants factory. I haven’t received a bad plant from them yet after two large orders.

      Great shape

      The plants arrived in great condition and were easy to separate and plant. I have also learned never to use USPS for anything that's alive, because they are always late. I will buy more plants from APF in the future

      Very happy with them!

      These are healthy and dense. I was surprised at the amount I was sent!
