Well I got the plant I ordered it was just dead when I got it and barely had any grass on the mats one had half the mat covered in grass other had 25% covered in grass on top Of that it was dead and dried out I’m sure it was the post office because the box was smashed but still sucks

Good For large Tanks

Very nice plant for larger tanks or if you want mid-ground coverage. Came about the length of my middle finger and is slow growing but I do not have a very good light.

I have ordered a few types of plants and am very happy with all of them. I was going to order more but then do to the current situation we are all in I have been out of work. But when I get back and caught up I will definitely be ordering more

Dwarf Hairgrass

Overall they looked amazing. My only downfall was not using the right type of fertilizer to get them to carpet properly. I will be upgraded my discus tank in the next few months to have CO2 and will be repurchasing for a 2nd attempt. Definitely recommend this product as long as you have the proper setup.
