Everything arrive safely and well packaged and so fast! I was so excited thinking about this, but it is kind of bad timing.
I have a small event showing that came up somewhat at the last minute for my candle business. I wanted to bring more candle products when I show up tomorrow. It is not a major deal but they wanted the crafter's to be at the store to represent our products. They sell my candles at Utopia in the mall. I was going to get some work done today for this event tomorrow, but I did not want the plants sitting packed up, etc, and had a water change to do this morning and some other things. Looks like I won't be able to bring as much tomorrow as I thought I would.
Anyway, I am still excited, but I am stressed a little.
The live plant route is definitely new for me and it is going to take extra patience and time. I am planting them, but have to get used to the fact they are not perfect right off the bat....size, etc.
My favorites so far out of the ones I got are:
Anubias Congesis (really love this one)
Red Melon Sword
The Pennywort will probably look better as it matures, but not sure about the roots that come out on the stems. I no this is what the are supposed to do but I don't like it when it is real noticeable. I think they just need to get more leaves....thicker. The Val Corkscrew looks kinda thin looking.....the thickness of the blades. I think I like the Dwarf Sagittaria Subulata better. I ended up not getting the Narrowleaf Sword Chain. Which one is better....the Narrowleaf Sword Chain or the Dwarf Sagittaria.
Down the road, I will have a better idea of the types I like best. I planted of few of these in my daughter's tank, so I took out that tall fake plant, which I miss somewhat. It is going to take some time getting used to the new look and not being the right heights yet. I will have to play around moving things until I get it right.
I may end up with some questions. I will let you know how it goes and will post pictures when I think it looks halfway decent. Not tonight, but someday soon.
