You are buying 1 potted plant. Potted plants are much better to start with as they have their entire root system intact and makes it much better when transplanting.

Planting Instructions

Potted plants are started in rock wool. To plant remove as much rock wool as possible. Most of the rock wool will pull off. If you have any left and want it off shake the plants gently by holding it by the roots and shaking in water. Leaving some rock wool will help anchor the plant in your substrate.

To separate the plant into individual plants grab the stems right above the root and pull gently. The roots should separate if they don't stop pulling and try other stems. Swirling this plant in water will help each individual plant separate easier. 

Only plant the root in your substrate, not any of the plant itself or this can cause melting or shock, for more information on planting and caring for your plants please go here

Great low light plant
Plant bunch arrived healthy and glowing. I was warned about crypt melt but did not personally experience it. Either I got lucky or C. wendtii from PAC is grown with steroids. Five days after planting, the largest of the divided group has already sent out 3 new leaves! This is very impressive to me as it's planted in Petco sand at 0.5 WPG and 21 PAR with a few root tabs. Grade A plant from PAC, as usual.
