Absolutely Beautiful!
I don't know who is growing these plants, but they are doing an amazing job. I have never seen such a deep green and healthy Lace plant. It came quickly and well packed. I will never buy plants ... more » from anywhere else. Thank you Planted Aquarium Central

This plant is crazy
I was very taken aback to find this monster of a plant wrapped individually and taking up almost half of the package. This plant is HUGE. It looks very healthy and has dozens of leaves. It's pretty delicate, at least after shipping, the tip of a leaf snapped off after being bent, and a white bud (I'm guessing?) also snapped off of a vine, though the rest of the plant looks great. I had the issue of never having enough plants to fill my 125, and if it was still running, I could probably fill it with a couple of these! I may have to get a bigger tank just for this plant!

The Holy Grail in my low tech!
I have always coveted the beauty of the Madagascar Lace, but "just knew" such a (reputedly) fussy and hard to grow plant could never survive, let alone thrive, in my low -tech tank. Took the plunge and am ever so happy that I did! It's been in my tank for 2 years now (sorry for the late review...ahem) and it's just breath-taking! It arrived as a gorgeous grown plant with a tiny bulb coming off the side. I planted it in the outflow of my HOB amongst some crypts, as I had read they are good company. I glumly waited for it to die on me and it never did! I now have 3 of them because there were daughter bulbs! They went dormant over the winter, but are coming back bigger and even more beautiful than I could have hoped. A healthy Madagascar Lace is like the Holy Grail of aquatic plants, even experts can't grow them... supposedly. But I think the vibrant health and quality of plants that PAC delivers makes all the difference! Thanks so much!
