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.

My friend has purchased a packet of Alternanthera reineckii and it has been taking off in his 150 ever since...i get free 6-8" stems everytime i stop by...so these plants are truly emersed grown and are proven to grow :P

Bought some bacopa in that packaging, I have to trim my tank once a week or else it'll overtake everything.

They are tissue culture, and I bought some red and green crypt wendtii. I was absolutely astounded at how readily they started growing, not one shoot failed, no "crypt melt", and took off quickly.

CLEAN THEM WELL, that gel stuff is a mess.

They seemed expensive but broken into pieces they go a long way.

Planted end of august 2014:



Here's a shot from May



The crypts are on the right side in front of the rocks, and far right. The tank is 28" deep so these are about 10" tall and still growing. The "red" is the darker green to the left.

I also bought some of their dwarf hair grass and all of it died, but I'm told I just did not have adequate light for it. But their crypts -- little half-dead looking shoots in plastic wrap just perked up and took off.
