      Super magenta!

      Exactly as described. 48 hours after adding to my tank there is no melt or wilt. I swear they have already grown! Very happy with my APF experience.


      Gorgeous colors! Can’t wait to see them taking over the section of the tank they are planted in.


      These look even better in person! Super Magenta 💜


      Love this plant. Such pretty color. The cuttings were fresh and healthy. Shipped well and arrived when expected.

      So bright

      From ordering to receiving my plants took only 3 days. All were packaged well and arrived perfect even though the temps near me were in the 30’s.
      These plants are growing so bright and like a weed. The above picture is immediately upon planting them. The below picture is now about 2 weeks later. I love the pop of color in my aquarium.


      Excellent experience
