Like the free shipping past $40. Size of individual plants have always been taller so far then what I was used to from stores before and quantity on Stem plants wonderful too....Even when I ordered my 2 Crypt's I got like 6 larger one's and 6 small one's (which I honestly think was a mistake thou they were attached with 1 root system lol)

I'll order there any day of the week again.

I just started a topic on this before seeing this topic. This potted plant Sweet Aquatics
is 8". That same plant not potted Sweet Aquatics is 12" yet more expensive. If the potted is older and/or more root extensive why is it smaller and cheaper? Or is their site info. wrong

This is the kind of 'doesn't make sense' crap that drives me insane. Something is wrong somewhere based on what potted is supposed to mean and what this site is showing. I can't see an 8" potted plant being older than a 12" non potted plant.

I just e mailed sweet aquatics because what's being said between potted and non potted and what their site shows are two different things and it's frustrating me to no end. Will await their answer.

Sweet Aquatics e mailed me back. Mary from there says that potted plants are grown emersed (above water). Rooted plants are grown submerged. Potted plants are generally shorter, and have strong roots because of the way they are grown and are generally fuller than rooted plants because there is generally more than one plant in the pot vs a single plant if you buy a rooted plants. Potted plants are less likely to "shock" compared to rooted plants due to the roots not needing to be disturbed. Where as rooted plants are removed from the substrate, packaged, shipped, and replanted.
