Nice, the dwarf hairgrass seems like the hardest one to find healthy in those packages. They are always brown mush at my store with the exception of one package.

I've bought a few other plants in those packages and they are all doing well.

wow that looks pretty good! Most of the plants at my pets mart aren't impressive at all, I have yet to see something in there that looks like this

I picked up one 2 weeks ago.

Broke it up in to smaller sections to try to 'seed' the foreground of my tank.

Im not seeing much growth now, but its still green. Im taking that as a good sign.

Doesn't $9 seems a bit expensive?
In any case, good to have ready access to some decent plants.

I thought so too but it seems like junglefowl got quite a bit out of that one package.

Is it just me, or is it amusing that they sell plants by the ounce now?
