I know what you mean, I thought aquarium plants meant aquarium plants. RETURN THEM. I bought some when I began my tank, and noticed things happening. I dug through the smelly kitchen trashcan for the tubs and shoved the plants back in and returned them. I did rinse the tubes though... so they weren't tooooo stinky.
