    Just rinse the plants well, look for any snail eggs, and if possible leave them for few days on a QT tank. I forgot to do all this when I ordered hornwort from Fosters and Smith... I can't get rid of the snails I got now :(

    I totally trust "wetgreenthing" and "plantsfactory" on eBay... gorgeous and healthy plants at an awesome price. Avoid "Grumpy-Bear-Art" on eBay, they sent some a horrid thing that look more like a bag of tea than a plant! Also, most eBay sellers have a buy 2 and the 3rd is free promo, so look for those ;)

    Use a soaking solution, about 1 gal of water and 1/2 tbsp of potassium permanganate. Soak for 15-20 min, then rinse with water before planting in the tank.

    Hi kjlife,

    If you are referring to the growths at the leaf tips those are java fern plantlets with roots; perfectly normal. In a month or so they should be large enough to remove and attach to hardscape....free plants!
