Exclamation Aquarium Plants Factory

I have a huge favor to ask.

If any of you have bought from The Aquarium Plants Factory after hearing about it on this Forum could you post here?

Thank you so much!

I actually sent them a mail about their layout because it blocked two thirds of my screen, they emailed me back and then had it fixed in record time! I got some nice plants for them when there was a sale.

Be the Better you.

They are very nice people with whom to deal. And their plants are gorgeous. Have a huge order coming in the next couple of weeks when I set up two new 20 long tanks.

I'm resisting the urge to order any more plants till winter is over. I've had problems with plants arriving in horrible condition due to the cold when I've ordered them during winter.

I've look over the site and I like what I see but have not ordered any yet. The plants I do have already are in great shape, and Ben's tank is a jungle. I've always wanted to see the plants, and fish I buy and choose the right type and height and spread of the plants. I also have never quite been able to afford the plants and shipping cost. I never seem to be able to get enough for the shipping minimum cost, and the other part is those darn pest that come with them at times. I hate buying plants that have snails in them I don't want to go through another infestation like i had a few years back in my 75 gallon, the final cost of that infestation was over $2500.00 and took 6 months to tear down and clean and replant (snail free plants) and replace the fish I had to relocate and the ones that died in the process. So I pick and choose very carefully from suppliers.
But on your recommendation I'll give this site a try when I open my next tank.

Good to check if they say their plants are snail free. Brought some plants once that had pest snails on it that took over the tank

Their plants are pest free or I would not recommend them. After a snail infestation it took my Assassin snails a month to clear. Like Old Dog 59, I would not buy from anyone I did not trust. Another infestation I will never again have is that @#$% Duckweed! I always ask shrimp sellers if they have Duckweed in their tanks.

As a note, though, if you tell them what size you need a plant just contact them before you order and Tristan will let you know if they have that size. I know because I needed Anubias heterophylla tall enough for my vases and that is exactly the size I received.

I've never had a problem with their plants having pest snails in them. If you are really paranoid you could get the invitro plants. The two main drawbacks with them is that they are more expensive and they are not large.

well after hearing your high praises I'll likely order from there next time I need plants-looking to setup a emersed tank in the spring and need it to be snail free.

Due to photobuckets bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my old photos helpful.
