                great moss

                plants arrived in great shape and are thriving in my tank. The tissue culture is priced decently compared to others and I appreciate the assortment of cultures as I have had issues with pests from other plants.


                The cultures arrived late, were runny and mushy, and had mold growing on them. I tossed 3 of them in the garbage. Washed the other 4 and put them in quarantine. Not a common experience with APF.

                Love this Flame Moss

                Cut it up pretty small, mixed with some water and crushed fluval stratum and painted a few lava rocks with it. Grew it out dry start then filled tank. Perfect, getting ready to order more for more rocks.


                Awesome moss would buy again!

                weeping moss cup

                Nice full and thriving tissue culture cup.

                Great Moss!

                I received this flame moss in my first order from APF and I absolutely love it! Really nice portion, healthy plants, and a good price!! Much better than this other plant site I had been ordering from. Their prices were too high for way less portion and quality. The flame moss is super vibrant green and surprisingly a bit hardier/substantial than I thought.
