Great plants!

Ordered four bunches and portions were very generous, they've already started to get new crimson growth after a week and a half! Definitely recommend

Healthy, beautiful plants!

Another great order from Flip. These plants arrived healthy and beautiful. They were an awesome addition to my tank. They easily adjusted and are already growing nicely.

Great Condition

I don't know how fragile the leaves are supposed to be, but my plants came in perfect condition. For my order, the money was definitely worth it for how many stems/plants I got for 50-60 bucks with shipping. Plus, the Swedish Fish included was the best!

I purchased Dwarf Water Lettuce, Rotala Rotundifolia Red and Ludwigia repens 'Red'. They arrived quickly and healthy with generous amounts. Nice selection, great experience.
