I like the ones in the little packages. They are like 8.99. Snail and pest free. Mine are doing great and real green. Good luck :)


Edit: Ah Petco, mine are from Petsmart. :p

I like the tube plants, ive had better luck with them than plants ive ordered and had shipped. Its not nec about the tube plants themselves, its more about the type of plant, regardless where you get them, some are easy some arent. Ive had the best luck with some ferns, javas and anubias. My swords are doing fine but seem to have slowed down :/..my crypts arent doing well.

My crypts pretty much melted away at one point and now they're growing a new leaf almost weekly!
