Petco Plants in Gel
Has anyone else tried these things? I think they are amazing! For those who have not seen them they are sold in a plastic tube with no water, only the roots are covered in this clear gel stuff. The plants are gorgeous and look spectacular in my tanks, they come snail free, and you generally get 3 or 4 instead of 1 plant in each tube!
They sell in three sizes $3.99 for small, $7.99(approx) for medium and $9.99 for large. My only complaint is that the packaging does not tell you much about the plant, but this is so much better than fishing some moth eaten weed out of the normal plant cemetraies at PETCO and Petsmart!
So far I have bought Borneo and Amazon Swords (each 3 or 4 for the price of 1), Gold Ribbon (2 for 1), a tropical fern (no idea what it is pecisely but it is gorgeous and I truly hope it is a real aquatic and mid-low light) and some grass like tall plant (forget what they labelled it but looks great and came about 7 plants in 1).
I just wondered if anyone else had seen these, and why more stores are not doing it.
