          This is the second time I’ve ordered the mini butterfly tissue culture. The first order had much smaller plants and were destroyed in my tank by hair algae.
          I was pleasantly surprised by my second order. The tissue culture arrived with much more mature plants.

          My water is alkaline and I’ve read mini butterfly prefer acidic water, but after a week in the tank, they still look healthy to me.
