Ok, got everything figured out :) One of my roommates unintentionally threw away the bags with the subwassertang in them in the trash, I dug through it but couldn't find them D: There were two very small bunches that the snails took into my zen tank with them, however, so I tied them both to my zen temple decoration with some khaki thread I found in my emergency sewing kit XD It's the same color as the decoration. I really hope the subwassertang grows! I think the bits I found might have been just big enough to proliferate.

The microsword has been smushed down into submission too. It looks sad about it (can plants be sad? LOL), but the tank looks much better.

1 failed shipment to Kfryman via envelope! Shipping via boxes from now on T_T
apparently duckweed turned to pulp.

The good news is, I got some new floaters today. including dwarf water lettuce. I'll be shipping those out to Kfryman and Alcemistmv first, then I'll post the portions that will be left

@babystarz - :D glad it worked out. now lets hope its submissive enough to root!

I wonder what happened.
It's ok, dont bother sending me money. if you did, I'll return it.
It's a giant miscalculation on my part. Trying to save on postage and shipping in envelopes.

Sorry!

Sorry!
it also came 20 cents postage due.

I opened it in front of the mailman and I'm sure he thought I was crazy when I explained what it was

Sometimes things go wrong! I had a box of plants mailed to me once--all shipped on the same day and it was overnight shipping...Half the plants made it perfectly, some made it kind of scrunched, but some just totally died during shipping. It happens! Sometimes the mailmen are unfriendly to our packages, and plants can be fickle. Even the hardy ones!
