      Took a bit to arrive

      I ordered on the 24th of may, the shipment was sent on the 28th and it arrived 7 days later on June third. It was supposed to arrive on the 31st so I was a bit worried about them being DOA.

      Aside from the Hydrocotyle Tripartita, everything was very healthy and I think (hope) the other will pull through.

      Brett Crawford
      Very disappointed

      I purchased 3 pink flamingo crypts and they came tiny. The plants in the pots were maybe the size of a quarter. Nothing even close to the pics in the description. Not worth the money spent. Very disappointed with what I received.

      cool crypt

      arrived healthy and well packed, with good root system. i'm a fan of this odd lil crypt

      Melted upon arrival

      got the bare-root plant version, all three were in terrible condition. Will update review if they grow in, but Im not hopeful

      Karl Peterson

      Happy with this plant and APF in general!

      Andrew Yeats
      As always, came very well packaged and healthy!

      4th order from APF and everything was healthy and great as usual. The plants are melting back as expected with crypts but I can see new leaves coming in so I expect them to do great!
