The plants are great, but communication was lacking

The bunch plants on my order were a bit shorter than expected, but everything else met expectations as far as the plants themselves are concerned. I placed this order on 9/22/20. The confirmation indicated that it would take 3-5 business days to process my order and another 2-3 days for shipping. On 9/29 my order still showed as pending, and I tried to reach out via the "chat" feature on the website which indicated they would contact me back in about three hours to ask why it was taking so long to process my order. I never really heard anything outside of an email late that afternoon indicating my order had been shipped. I actually received the order on 10/1/20. While this was within the expected window, I think that processing should not take so long, and I should have heard something back rather than what appeared to be a standard "your item has shipped" email.

Dwarf Hairgrass on a mat

Really impressed. The grass is doing well after 3 weeks. What a nice way to have grass in a bare bottom tank.

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.
