I also found crypt balansae, Cyperus helferi, crypt wendtii tropica or something like that, and some sort of cardinal plant.

Interesting that they are selling p. helfiri. From everything I've read, it requires CO2. Do they let people know that on the packaging, or is it buyer beware? Or am I wrong and it grows fine without CO2?

100% legit, went today and bought some Crypt Wendtii Tropica, Crypt undulate 'Red', some staurgoyne repens, Flourish root tabs and some algae wafers. sad to say I spent over $50 when I only meant to spend 20. Not sure if it's known but petsmart will be having a 4th of July Sale, the lady who was helping me said if I wanted to buy a tank, was looking at a 20 long for a grow out, to wait until the 4th

No idea, she only mentioned it when I looked at the tanks, so I would assume tanks. I would hope its more than just tanks, but a sale on tanks would be pretty nice

Lol, I have too many tanks already.

They actually give you a lot more plants than you think; I planted so much downoi when I was setting up my new tank.

Yeah, I bought some Cyperus helferi from Petsmart a couple of weeks ago. I like it sitting above the dwarf hairgrass. It's hanging in there, but my tank doesn't have enough light or CO2 for it to really flourish.
