Decent quality, nice looking plant. Leaves are not as dark as I would have liked, or what the pictures suggest on the website. I attached it to driftwood using superglue. We'll see how it takes.

Excellent shape

Another great plant!!

Healthy and clean plant

The rhizome I received was small, about 1.5 inches long, but had a dozen nice leaves. The leaves are smaller than in the description and are about half an inch long and a quarter of an inch wide. I'm hoping the leaves grow bigger because I have some fish in my display aquarium that will be tempted to nibble on small leaves. It would be nice if the photos included something to show scale. The leaves are a nice dark green and have a metallic sheen to them as shown in the second photo. The plant was nicely packed, and the package arrived very quickly. It's added a couple leaves since I put it my grow-out aquarium a few weeks ago, and I'm looking forward to eventually putting it in my display tank.
