The bagged plants IMO are no good. All of my needle leaf Ludwigi melted after a week and the red type I bought are also just falling apart, no new growth. I have had good luck with the tubed anubis, bought 3 and one died due to my fault (cut the rhyzome) but the other two are going strong.
Edit: Most of the live tank plants are pretty good.
In our Petsmart, they sell a lot of junk plants. Only if you select very carefully, you will find a few good ones. A very boring selection. They sell some plants, which are not doing well in normal aquariums, even when lighting is OK. Perhaps, they do well in their nurseries, but they will melt down, when you plant them in your tank.
i've used their tube java ferns and annubis and swords. i have used the bulbs in a box and melon swords in the baggy. everything grew nicely in my no co2 tank. one thing to look out for is that these plants are in an emersed state, so expect to loose some of the emersed leaves while the plant transitions from emeresed to submersed.
depends on the PEtsmart/Petco I recently moved to Va and the Petco is garbage and the Petsmart is ok the bagged plants from petsmart are ok depends on how long they are in the store the Microsword and DHG I bought were nutrient starved......but are doing well
My Petsmart has them, bacopa, a sword, microsword, telanthera etc. Although it has "Crypt Wendtii" and if it's really Wendtii green like it says, it's the smallest, crypt parva looking wendtii i've ever seen.
