RAVE about plants from Mikeswetpets
 
Hi all,

I just thought I'd share my experience with my purchase from Mikeswetpets on e-bay. I've been underwhelmed to say the least with my plant buying experiences from two other "popular" sites. I know that a lot of you have been too.

I purchased 5 or 6 of the large Amazon Swords, two bunches of Wisteria, two bunches of Cabomba and two good size pots of Baby Tears.

I was blown away when I opened the box. The swords are amazing and HUGE!! Everything I got was at least two or 3 times the size of the same plants that I had purchased from another place when I first planted my 75 gal. community tank.

I just can't say enough about the quality and I'll be getting my plants from there from now on.

I didn't see one snail and I checked everything really closely. Here's the link for his store and I'm pretty sure he's on Aquabid but I haven't checked it out yet.

And no, I'm not affiliated with them :) I'm just paying it forward.

Low Light Live Plants, Moderate Light Live Plants items in Mikeswetpets Aquarium Plants store on eBay!

This guy also uses Aquabid. I've bought a few things from him and the shipping was FAST and cheap. My plants were great as well!


I agree he is awesome.

I'm glad I can help out here. There's nothing worse than spending a ton of money on plants only to open the box and say "meh". I've been there, done that.

Good luck and let us know how you make out.

My other experience with ordering plants online was okay, the plants were in good shape and was happy about the quality. The only issue I had was the three weeks it took for me to get my order and that was with paying thru paypal, so it was not like I had to wait for a check or money order to get there and clear.
