Green Leaf Aquariums Plants, now available!

Hello PTF folks!

Green Leaf Aquariums has been working on a rather large venture by providing fresh aquatic plants grown in our very own greenhouse. Our facility will be expanding in the weeks to come as we finish things up in preparation for the current list of available plants. Our plants will be grown and cared for on site so they will always be of the freshest and best quality. We do not import and ship out the next day like other plant sellers, this method usually results in a very stressed plant in turn a lesser quality plant. Our plants are cared for in a climate controlled environment and grown by us, Green Leaf Aquariums.

With our vast knowledge for caring for aquatic plants we will be able to provide quality plants beyond any typical standard you are currently use too when ordering plants. Thanks in advance for checking us out PTF!

We are working on it as we speak. We have more work to do, lots of it.

Here is something cool though!

I've purchased ferts from GLA before and decided to add 1 plant with my last order. I hope Orlando adds to his selection of plants because GLA may be my new favorite source! Great, healthy, well packaged, and not skimpy; thanks Orlando!

Elatine hydropiper is not ready and has a ways to go still. Hopefully by late January early February I will have it ready.

How are you getting it to live? It seems like everyone in Europe has a hard time keeping it alive.

Have you tried it submersed?

Sorry but I have always wanted that plant!

Tender loving care.

Have you tried it submersed? Yes, we have both growing very well right now. Right on par with Parva as far as growth rate. Super slow.

Thanks man!! We are perfecting our methods as we go. I have been learning a bunch about flowering crypts. I had no idea how bad they smell when flowering.

Can you ship to Jakarta, Indonesia? I want order about 10 pots Elatine hydropiper if it available.
How much the total cost estimation? I prefer to take the express shipping since this plant is very fragile.

Thanks
