IMPORTANT: Our aquarium plants may vary in growth forms. Because of this, please understand how to properly transition and acclimate plant(s) into desired form(s). We do our best to thoroughly clean and inspect all plants prior to shipment but cannot guarantee lead bunch or potted plants to be free from snails and/or algae. Not your thing? Please consider purchasing tissue culture aquarium plants! 

Tissue culture plants are cultivated in sterile lab settings ensuring your plant is free from pests, snails and algae! These are young specimen that are grown in emersed forms. Gel should always be removed prior to planting.

LIVE PLANTS ARE SUSCEPTIBLE TO STRESS AND DAMAGE FROM TRANSIT - This may appear in the form of minimal melt, leaf loss, cosmetic damage, etc. Refunds or replacements will not be issued for plants with viable root systems or that die out of our care.

Vesicularia Montagnei, more commonly known as Christmas Moss or X-mas Moss is arguably one of the most popular aquatic mosses commonly used in the planted aquarium hobby. Originating from Asia, Christmas Moss is closely related to Java Moss, another extremely popular aquatic moss, and is comparable in appearance with only slight differences in its fronds. Once established, Christmas Moss is a prolific grower and may require regular pruning to ensure it does not take over the aquarium. Manual removal is best, but if trimming is required, we recommend turning off filters and pumps to prevent the moss spreading to unwanted areas.
