Turtle enjoyed eating it

The plant came in perfect health. I placed it in a bowl of my tank water for a few days before placing it in my tank, where it lasted less than a week because my turtle enjoyed eating it so much. The roots are still there, so I'm hopeful that I will get some regrowth as well.

Aquairium plants

When I received the 3 plants,Anubias Nana, Anubias Coffeefolia, & Amazon swordplant I could not be any happier. They were packed the best i have ever seen, they were very green healthy. They looked like the owner took very good care in raising them. I will be purchasing from them again
