Most, not all, of those plants sold in tube are not true aquatic plants and that is sad and misleading.

yeah I just now read that... -___-
that.... set me so far back.... I am soo lucky to have a good friend to give me some of his extra hornwort and java moss..
The "wisteria" is the only thing growingish... but it don't look like wisteria supposed to, it looks more like moneywort.

The "amazon swords" are there, simply, I guess time will tell.
The "aqua fern" just is a piece of rubbish.

What was the scientific name on the wisteria tube? I bought a topfin wisteria...it didn't look like wisteria at first, but now that it's been exposed to proper light and whatnot, it looks normal.

Eh, it happens. :P If it's really wisteria, (round leaves?) it looks odd because they're grown out of water, hence why they can say there are no snail eggs attached to the plants. That's the same reason your sword plant may look really bad; it's adjusting to being underwater still. When I placed my topfin sword plant in my aquarium, it lost several leaves.

Not to be mean or anything, but why didn't just buy the plants they keep in seprate tanks?

And some of the plants they keep in the tank are not true aquatic plants either, like the mondo grass I seen last time I was in one of those shops.

Very true about the growth and look of some of the true aquatic plants, the emersed and submersed look/leaves are different.
