Great plant!

I am loving this plant, it completely melted back when I first planted it, and I thought it was gone forever, but it has made a slow comeback and is now doing great!

Only 1 of the 4 received survived

The plants seemed OK when I received them, but after placing them in my aquariums, all but one melted away and never recovered.

Reliable supplier

All 5 plants came quickly and in very good condition. Ordered almost 2 months ago and all of them are feeling well in my fish tank. Will definitely come back to them.

Excellent Top Quality Plants

Another plant that arrived very healthy and nice size. I don't know why but only a few of the plants went through a MELT PERIOD. Other plants I've purchased elsewhere all melted back and some never came back. Out of the 40 to 50 plants I've received from Wet Plants maybe 5 melted and quickly shot up new growth. Just great quality. Kevin
