Fast shipping, great packaging, all doing well.

Salvinia arrived healthy and very well packaged along with my Malaysian trumpet snails and java moss. Both plants and the snails were very healthy and are doing well.

Note that the while the portions of plants are described accurately (my 1 portion = about ten leaves, as described), with this particular plant it is a rather small amount. Something like a small condiment container (essentially what they're shipped in) to give you an idea of the volume.

My portion rather naturally divided (i.e. without cutting) into three, which I have in two very small tanks. Two of three are showing new root and leaf growth, and all are remaining mostly green as of 10+ days later.

Salvinia is VERY textured and resembles a Venus's fly trap mouth. My plants are quite "compressed" in growth, so this is a quite different effect for the water surface than a flat "pad"-like growth of other floaters. Under the waterline, roots are fuzzy and brown with new root growth first appearing green.

Packaging was extremely secure and well done (my order included live snails). Shipping was very fast as well.

Overall very impressed and will order again.

Love this stuff

The Salvinia arrived in good shape, even though Christmas delayed the delivery a couple of days. I swear it is already growing after only 2 days in my tank and looks great.

Awesome plant! Don’t be fooled by the size.

Received what I thought was a small amount of salvinia. A week later this plant has DOUBLED and looking beautiful. 8/9 hours of light a day and no Co2 , this plant is a fast grower and personally looks a ton better than duckweed.

Red Root Floaters and Salvinia

I found Flip Aquatics through the Primetime Aquatics Youtube channel so I decided to order the floating plants I needed. I am very impressed! This company has some of the best customer service I've experienced and we plan on getting all of our plants from here in the future! The Salvinia arrived healthy and has since started to grow quickly. The Red Root Floaters are perfect and thriving. Shipping was quick and packaging was great. I highly recommend this company and we appreciate all of Tyler's help. Thank you again!!

Hey Elisabeth!

Thank you so much for your order and for your review! Happy to hear that the Salvinia is doing great! As for the Red Root Floaters, I'm sorry that they came in that way! We would love to talk to you more at store@flipaquatics.com to see if we can rectify this and make this whole experience a five star one! Have a great day!

Tyler
