They are cycling their plants. This thread reminds me I need to go in and see what they've gotten recently. Prices have gone up in the last few months, I bought my DHG for $5.99, A. Cardinalis for $6.99, and Needle Ludwigia and Crypts for $7.99. All are doing beautifully, but I stop in the day they get their deliveries each time to make sure they're fresh. Got laughed at last time because the girls there all watch me pull them all off to get the ones in the back (the new ones).
The A. Cardinalis has grown beautifully. My original theme for the tank was "big box store", and I have to admit I'm still shocked at how well it turned out. I know it may be a little pricey, but the quality has been great and I'm willing to pay for guaranteed snail free! The new packs are so much better than those stupid tubes.
