Sweetaquatics is 7 hours away from where I live. They shipped my plants on Monday and I got them today @ noon. Of coarse this was after waiting almost 2 weeks for them to ship them. The only way I can get pennywort is to order it as no one carries it around me. Wish I could get my hands on a good quality stem of pennywort as I am sure Byron's is/was.

My jungle val is all brown and falling apart, my sagittaria looks ruff my swords do look good but that's it. There were at least 5 members who just received orders or placed them that got bad looking plants. I'm getting ready to start a new plant thread on places to buy. For what I paid I'm not extremely disappointed, if they bounce back now if they all die I'm not gonna be very happy.

Yes I did get all of my plants, it looks like maybe we recommended them to much because now over half there plants are sold out.

Just got done sending my letter to sweetaquatics soo hopefully they will understand my frustration with this order. Also maybe this time I will get an answer the first time rather then having to send them another email just to finally get an answer.

I saw where you posted that site in another thread and looked her page last nite. Nice prices and plants. Is shipping cost bad?
