2nd order was not as green as the 1st order

1st order plants were dark green, 2nd order was mostly brownish.... threw some away kept some & we'll see.... not sure if I have snail eggs or not... the last picture has all my plants from Wet Plants which I am very happy with except this last batch of hornhort I recieved.... You do take a gamble ordering online. Overall I'm very happy! Thankyou!

Love this plant

Ordered 2 bunches.... love this plant... its full, green and bushy... it can either float on top(babies hide in them) or put end pieces in the gravel, they look like pine trees...
