Ya man! I don't remember the last time i paid for plants. Trades are so much more "profitable". I can send and recieve monster bunches of plants for the cost of shipping!!

Its actually a fair amount for the smaller varieties.

you get what would normally be 3 bunches of dwarf hairgrass for 7.99.

Stem plants on the other hand are very short stems. About 2.5-3 inches. The packaging is about 4 inches Lengthwise to give you an idea of the number of stems. For those who don't mind growing the plants out, it could be a decent enough option considering most LFS around here have a terrible plant selection.

That Pet Place is hit or miss with their plants. It almost makes sense take a chance and buy online.

I have bought the bacopa and it was about 1.5 inches tall when I got it. Two weeks later, it has taken off in my tank(which is a 5 gallon low tech; just gravel, no co2, and a cfl) and some stems are 6 inches tall.
