The crypts came in great condition, healthy and green with long roots. They did melt back quite a bit, but my water is very soft and acidic, and I trimmed the roots when I was planting. When I opened the package, I saw that someone had dropped a Swedish Fish candy in it! I don't know whose idea that was, but I thought it was really funny. I tried to attach a picture of the Swedish Fish in front of my tank, but I couldn't figure out how to make it work. It was awesome, though.
Healthy plant, exactly as pictured.
