    This plant is awesome! Looks great attached to a big piece of driftwood, and grew 2 new leaves in 6 days. Great customer service and smart plant packaging too.

    My favourite plant!

    Such a cool plant. Very strange looking. I planted it as my centerpiece plant and it is looking great already. There were two new leaves within 48 hours. Unbelievable. I almost wish I had got more than one because of how cool looking it is.

    Received a bit beat up but alive. After a few days they are now coming back and will be fine.

    Quite little plant. Was an add on to an order due to the cheap price. Has settled in to the tank well and looks great. Glad I got it.
