        There's a lot in that little cup!

        As I unrolled and separated this from its little cup I was pleasantly surprised how good of a shape this plant was! Not a dead or dying leaf to be seen. Also, how much of it there was in there! Excellent! Well worth it and I will buy some again for my other tanks!
