I need some plant IDs please...


So ive been waiting for an order from ADI placed on the 24th and today it comes in a flat rate envelope, all in the same dry bag with a little condensation in it, and no plants separated. I wanted to check out the product they had before placing a big order that would have included a bunch of fish so i only ordered 2 of a few different plants and only spent $20, so in no way is this a way to bash on ADI but I will not be placing another order with him again. And def need to upgrade your packaging. Here is what I ordered, all had plenty instock when ordered:


2 Rotala Nanjenshan
2 Rotala Indica
2 Rotala Green
2 Heteranthera Zosterifolia (stargrass)
1 Rotala sp. “Pearl” Mini Type II (Rotala Pearl)
2 Limnophila sp. “Mini Vietnam” (Limnophila Mini Vietnam)
2 Rotala macrandra (Rotala Macrandra)

From what i got, it looks like i got 3 Rotala macrandra, 3 Rotala Pearl, and 5 Mini vietnam or stargrass, cant tell one apart.

The only thing I can ID is your vintage pine floors. The ones I have are I believe 90 - 100 years old. Not sure if you noticed but in the 3rd photo the polyurethane on your floors need a little touch up on the exposed bare wood.

My only concern about the plants is I can't see any roots in the stems. Is that NOT a problem or can they be inserted into the substrate just like that?

Almost every single time I've just plopped a stem into my substrate (Eco-C) it would wither/melt away in about 1-2 weeks.

Good luck with your plants hope someone can ID them over the weekend.

I don't think I would order anything more from them. Have you contacted him to see if there was a problem?? You certainly didn't get the plants you ordered.

Ya I contacted him, he said he had a heater failure and lost a bunch. That is understanding and said he emailed me saying what happen but I only received an order conformation email and nothing else. Would not have ordered if I knew I was getting 3 out of 7 plants. Don't get me wrong the plants were ok looking but by far the worst packaging I've ever received. You can have the best product in the world but if you throw it in a stapled non ziplock bag with no water, in a padded envelope, it makes your product look like crap.
