I've had mixed results. My Amazon Swords and Anubias from tubes are super healthy and probably twice as big as when I bought them last summer. The Peacock ferns died right away. My best advice is, go with hardy plants that will easily weather the transition from the emersed gel they're in to being submersed. And if there are more than 2 visible brown leaves, don't buy the plant.
I also tried those plant bulbs they sell. Only one grew, it was a lily and it was gorgeous, but got too big for my tank fast :P
