        Melted, but arrived in good shape!

        These guys arrived sturdy and in good shape. I don’t know what happened though because less than a week after planted, they totally and completely melted away. That’s not APF’s fault, though! They just really didn’t like something in my tank!

        Nicely packaged

        The plants arrived in great shape and were packed well so that the cold did not effect them. I let them warm up and then planted them. They look great so far.

        Damaged during shipping

        All of my orders from APF have been healthy, beautiful plants. This particular pogostemon was damaged during shipping. It was packaged very well and everything else in the order was ok. Time will tell if it recovers. I will absolutely order more from APF in the future. If this plant doesn't survive I know APF will make it right. I'm not worried at all.

        Beautiful greens; Too soon to tell

        Arrived quickly as always, with a good quantity of some beautiful greens. Plant immediately as these don’t have any longevity within the cup. Was able to get five large bunches - I planted in three separate tanks. Fifth star will come when adaptation is achieved successfully; for now, it’s too soon to tell.


        Plants came in fast, also the best plants I have ordered online.
