Tall, healthy, thick stems, looks great.

This was HUGE when it arrived. Easily 12 inches tall, fresh out of the package. It's doing great in the aquarium. The fish seem to love it.

This plant arrived in excellent condition even though the ice pack had melted and inside the transport bag was very hot.
