Okay. It's the Aquarium trade meets the plant trade, with somewhat confusing results.

I ordered pretty much every single Cryptocoryne they sell - these are aquatic Aroids that are used in planted aquariums, but which can also be grown emersed.

And they were cheap. About $2 each. No complaints there.
They also took a bit longer to ship than I was expecting - but not as long as to be alarming - maybe shipped out a week or so after I ordered.
The plants arrived in good condition .... but with one small problem.

No labels. I got 8 plants and maybe two labels.

In the aquarium trade, where these things are being used as design elements, this might be acceptable.

If they're going to sell to plant enthusiasts and hobbyists, they're going to have to provide labels. Or write the names of the plants on the baggies. Or something.

I did get the plants I ordered, I think. I believe that I was able to attach the correct names to each plant, by looking at the small pictures on their website. But I'll never be absolutely SURE. And divisions of these plants may get traded with the wrong names attached, which is a shame.

Plants were fair sized, safely shipped, and quite inexpensive. It's just an issue with the interface between the aquarium world and the plant world ... I'd rate them positive if this was an aquarium site, but this is a plant site, and those who may consider ordering from this vendor should be advised ... don't expect your plants to be separately labeled.

Overwhelmed? There's a lot to see here. Try starting at our homepage.
