          Customer Reviews

          Based on 9 reviews

          My favorite plant, it's gorgeous and easy to remove from the wire backing, came out in a couple large cunks which made planting it easy.


          Shrimp love it

          looks good

          arrived in great shape. stainless it was on is too thick though. even with metal snips it was difficult to cut into smaller pieces

          Great Moss and Great Packaging

          Moss was healthy and vibrant when it came in the mail, and was packaged on a steel mesh tied down with string. This is in my opinion the best way to package moss, because the string is much easier to remove without damaging the product than the plastic mesh that other sellers use. I would 100% order from them again.

          Just be aware that the order typically takes ~1wk to come in and the tracking app they use isn't super informative. I would like to see APF update that in the future and improve their shipping times, however it didn't have a negative effect on my order. The instant gratification society we live in has just warped my expectations.

          Excellent Quality

          Fissidens Nobilis was exactly as pictured, healthy and vibrant. Easy to separate from the ss mesh for planting on rock and driftwood, and the moss fully attached to hardscape after a week in dry start. I would recommend quarantine for a couple days, but couldn't be more pleased with the overall quality.

          Jeffrey Allen

          Could not be more pleased with what was received. The FISSIDENS NOBILIS was in great health and I'm sure it will take off in no time at all
