it arrived very quickly and in a good healthy condition. it has only been planted for 2 weeks and it has grown very quickly. it is putting out roots so im able to cuttings already. it was bigger than i anticipated and i think it is well worth the money to have well established plants. my aquascape looks fantastic! the colours show up well against the green of the other plants. i am happy to recommend this plant and Aquasabi to everyone who wants quality plants and a quick delivery service. the experts at Aquasabi know their stuff! :-)
