I think he used to be oceanaqua as well. I have received great plants from him, but it is strange.

Is his (possibly her) name Phu Hyunh or something similar? As I recall, that's oceanaqua's name.

In college....so no aquariums for a while.....

not a happy camper

I'm not happy. I sent funds through Paypal on the same day of the posting which was the Nov. 2nd.

I've been checking the mail for the package and finally decided to PM the seller to see what's going on. I get a PM back today saying the plants went out today and I will get it in 2-3 days.

What gives?!? I'm thinking...if I didn't ask, it probably wouldn't have gone out today. What's with the 6 days lag?

Hope you guys who also bought plants from Green Queen had better results......

I probably will not purchase again...

FWIW, I purchased some plants from Aquadise off of Aquabid a few weeks ago and was very happy with the quality of the plants. Shipping was pretty quick also.

....

I received the plants today and will be throwing everything out. I've attached some pics to show the condition of the plants and the "stowaways" that came along.

(It's a favorite term that I like to use. For example, ever order penne pasta and you end up getting a piece of linguini also that shouldn't be there, well that piece of linguini is a stowaway...hahaahaa)

Anyway, most of the leaves were brown and falling off as I'm rinsing the plants. Numerous snails were included and the huge stowaway bugs.

Others may have had a better experience than mine, but I'm just sharing with others.

sorry to hear you got bad plants. they look pond raised because of the bugs which I believe to be dragonfly nymphs or something of the sort, nasty bugs! and snails arent a big deal......

Cool

since he pm'd me the paypal name and I payed over 10 days ago, I haven't heard a word from them. Waiting for the plants isn't a big deal but lack of communication is. Hopefully I have better results than I see above if/when the plants do come. Outlook not looking so good

eeng168, I'm sorry to hear about getting Screwed over... Although you got the plants, they do look pond raised & I would agree it does look like a Dragonfly Nymphs. The plants don't look all that healty either!

415w203, I'm fairly new here too, & So far, I have only had one bad plant package arrive... Not totaly due to the seller... But, mostly... The only bad thing is that the plants were all just "thrown" in a bag together. Not really sepparated at all. Plus, they were "lost in shipping" which made 1/2 of them die... Other than that, I have had great experiences!

yea i dont know whast going on--i PM'd the other day again to see when my plants would be shipped and i still havent gotten them. If they sit in a post office over the weekend im gonna be pissed. they wont last in there over the weekend.

I guess im gonna have to PM again to see whast up--right now the level of customer satisfaction i have is in the negative pergatory region. Up or down will it go? who knows, but i dont think this lead-filled plane is getting fof the ground.

ill keep everyone posted.
