What all else did you get, its a lil hard to see?
Haha! That's what I already had to do. The pennywort was SO long I had no choice but to snip it and replant it! I cannot wait for it to fill out!

As for the plants I got:
3 Amazon Swords
2 Kleiner Bar Swords
1 Red Rubin Sword
Lots of Dwarf Sag
Lots of Narrowleaf Chain Sword
3 Alternathera Reinckii
And the pennywort

That would be Alternathera Reinckii. Caught my eye when I was looking through Amazon origin plants.

I realized that too with my 2nd shipment when I had 1 Pennywort ordered...not only do I think Mary mixed up something about the ONE but the one's I did get where super long; I cut all in half before I even planted them lol

Uuuhhhh love the Kleiner Bar too bad they were sold out last time; you gotta take me a pic of yours when you have time pleaseee.

hm what ya mean by "lots" narrowleaf chain....I just posted in your other thread how's growing like weed....so I hope you loveeeee having a BUNCH and then some over the next 6 weeks

Really love the plant combo that's gonna be looking real nice a few weeks from now!!!!

Will do! I really love all the swords I got. They all were in great shape. I'm so excited. I go to the pet store tomorrow and that's when I'll be picking up my extra ferts. I ran out today, but I need to get some of that NutraFin fert sticks quick. It does wonders in my 28 gallon.

Oh yea the Swords and the Narroleaf and all will sure enjoy that. If you can't find the Nutrafin; I'm using API and that works well on the Sword plants.

i'll keep checking in to see how it's going.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
