              Java Moss

              The plants arrived quickly and in excellent condition, especially considering the 100-degree heat they came in. The plans have been in my aquarium for a week and are doing well.

              Continuous excellence!

              I've purchased multiple times from the folks at Aquarium Plants Factory and again this time....No disappointment with products delivered. The plants delivered were healthy, well packaged and promptly delivered!
              Everything I've purchased from these folks have been exceptional, and I have experienced many of the low light broadleaf plants making the transition to submerged life with minimum melt, and in some cases none. That is remarkable considering I don't really have a green thumb, and it was a welcome surprise!

              I'm in no way affiliated with the company or any of it's employees, just a happy customer!
              PS. I've never lost a plant from these folks so far, so shop with confidence....when one has a reputation like theirs, one strives to maintain it!
