Stupid petco plants
 
Petco sells Trichomanes Javanicum and Ophiopogon Japonica as aquarium plants. I bought the Javanicum today because I thought it was a java fern, and I couldnt remember the scientific name. Just a warning to all beginners out there steer clear of the petco plants.http://www.fishforum.com/userpix/5866_New_Image_1.jpg

It's a very nice package just a tad misleading :wink:

Shared experiences makes informed buyers
 
If I were you, I wouldn't go there anymore.

I actually like the petco near me, the tanks are clean and no dead fish that ive ever seen. hardly any snails too. I don't usually buy fish from there but they are the cheapest for food and testing kits. But I'm going to return this plant and have a discussion with the manager.

That's not the only way they sell misleading plants. I bought some mondo grass (I did not do my homework) that was in the tank with the rest of their aquarium plants so I assumed it was would be fine in an aquarium. Was told here at the forum that it will rot eventually.
