Ordered 3 Crypt. Parva and planted in the foreground of my tank. Came in looking great and no meltback at all. Very happy.
Long healthy root system, great packing, great looking plants!
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.
