    About Mixed Boxes

    Mixed Boxes are the best way to add lots of plants into your aquarium without the hassle of having to choose the plants - leave it up to the experts!

    Our plant manager will persoanlly pick your plants choosing a range of foreground, midground and background plants. All mixed boxes have a range of colours and sizes so when they arrive with you, it looks beautiful immediately.

    What size should I choose?

    Select the mixed box that is closest to your aquarium taking into consideration any wood or rocks you already have in there. If that's the case, try the next size down.

    Can I request specific plants in a Mixed Box?

    You can't request specific plants but if you'd like more foreground than background for eg, shoot us a message and we'll see what we can do for you.

    Our Delivery Promise to you

    If you choose Express Delivery, we will replace any plants that are damaged due to delays. Express Delivery is a fast, trackable, and reliable option with a one hour delivery window. It also ensures that the plants will arrive in the same condition as when they left our facility. If you choose a different postage option, such as Tracked 24 or Tracked 48, you will not be covered for any damages due to delays and will assume the risk yourself if the plants do not arrive in good condition. Express Delivery includes an insurance policy, which may cost more but provides added peace of mind.


If you order before 4pm we dispatch the same working day (Mon-Fri). Shipping prices start at £4.99 depending on the speed of delivery required.

    With an aquascape in mind, we've put together a mixture of potted plants that has been chosen by the Aqua Essentials Plant Manager suitable for a Discus set up where plants need to withstand warmer water conditions. This is a surprise box and each week it will vary depending on what plants we have in stock.

    The great thing about this mixed box is that it will cover anyone who's considering setting up a planted aquarium and are looking for an economical start up but still with high quality plants. You may not be sure which plants to choose so leave it to us and we will do all the hard work for you.


    • A selection of foreground, midground and background plants
    • A combination of either all potted plants from the greenhouse OR a mix of potted plants and tissue cultured plants (which allows for the very best selection, range and colours)
    • Superb value for money

    Once you receive these plants we know you'll be absolutely delighted with the choice and quality. Aqua Essentials has an amazing reputation for quality and we always live up to it. Once you receive your mixed box, it's entirely up to you as to how you plant them in your aquarium. Take the stress out of choosing plants and unleash your creative potential.

    We strongly recommend when purchasing live plants you opt for Express Delivery to ensure your plants arrive quickly and safely.

    Great variety, well established but with room to grow, very healthy vibrant. Best plants I’ve purchased.

    Superb service, I would have appreciated info as to where plants were best suited in tank, admittedly it gave the height, but I seem to remember last time I bought plants there was guidance front, centre or rear on the packaging.

    I can’t recommend this company enough. The plants are amazing in quality and they way bigger than I was expecting. I have ordered a box for a 300L setup and it completely filled out my 5x2 base with the wood and rocks. The tank looks it was planted weeks ago.
    I wouldn’t go elsewhere for plants in the future.

    Your plants will be wrapped with recyclable Honey Comb wrap - sounds cool because it is :). It interlocks which means we don't need to use tape either, reducing our impact on the environment.

    Not only is delivery fast with DPD Express but it's also green as they offset all the carbon their vehicles produce. Guilt free delivery which we're very proud of...

    We guarantee you'll be happy with your order. But if you're not, please contact us so we can resolve. We are 100% here to help and will always do our best to resolve any issues - that's a promise.
