Starter Plants for a betta tank

Hi all,

I have put together some packages for sale.

(3) Starter pack: contains
2 golf balls of java moss. These are full plants and not loose trimmings.
3-4 plantlets of Needle leaf java fern (3-6 leaves per plant)
12 nodes (leaves) portion of Hydrocotyle sp. 'Japan' seen in the center of the photo below.


$20 shipped usps with delivery confirmation.

(2) Moss and floater pack: consists of 3 golf balls of moss, palm fulls of frogbit and dwarf water lettuce for $$17 shipped

These are all low maintenance plants which will help keep your water cleaner and beautify the tank.
Please PM with questions for further details. I only accept paypal.

Thanks
AC

What exactly is meant by "low maintenance?" I'm a newbie to plants. Would LED lights suit those?

Hi lilyth88,
low maintenance generally means, low-medium light without fertilizer or pressured co2 injection and also dont require daily or weekly trimming as other plants may do. These plants are growing in my betta tank and shrimp bowl with a desk light. i generally do a weekly water change and thats about it. I can likely toss in a few floaters in as well to help soak up the nitrates in the tank as i always include extras.

is there a way you can do a combo package? I am not sure if I have enough room for more than 1 moss ball, but I am interested in the rest of the plants you offered.
