Plant Sizes

Just wanted to give you a heads up that the image of the plant you'll be receiving is just an example of what you can expect. Each plant is unique and may vary in size and shape, so it won't be an exact match to the photo. If we provide a size guide, keep in mind that it's just an estimate and that plants can vary in size depending on the time of year.

Hygrophila angustifolia rubra

I was looking for a colourful relatively fast growing plant to fill a gap in my aquarium and this one seemed to fit the bill. So I purchased one from Aqua essentials. Although a little apprehensive what would arrive, first time for this particular plant, I was very pleased what arrived. A lovely plant in excellent condition. As usual from AE, beautiful plant, very well packed arriving on time. Thank yo again AE.

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.
