    pretty much dead

    Frog bit was sparse and never looked right. It has since all but died. This is usually a very prolific plant.

    eh

    I thought I was buying something else. On that note I'm not sure how this plant is supposed to look or grow. But it didn't look like I received the amount I ordered and I'm still waiting (a week later) for them to do something more than look like a dead weed.

    May Contain Duckweed

    Posted by Alyssa on Aug 18th 2016

    I bought 3 species of plant from here at the same time--a lily, frogbit, and some valisneria. One of these little lovelies brought some Stowe away giant duckweed spores. This was not really a problem for me because I'd quarantined the plants (and my goldfish would have made short work of duckweed anyway), but I thought I'd mention it.

    My frogbit survived the trip, and, after a few weeks took off great. My chief complaint is that the frogbit they sent only had adult leaves--the kind that lack the spongey bottom and have trouble floating or maintaining orientation. It didn't cause me to lose too many leaves, but it did stress me out a bit.

    Great job!

    Received plants in good condition, even though the cardboard box was almost completely crushed! Was a little worried until I opened the package and inspected plants. All is good!

    FROGBIT

    Posted by GIL on May 31st 2016

    THIS IS A HEARTY PLANT FOR COLORADO. I HAVE HAD THEM FOR ABOUT 2 WEEKS AND THEY ARE GROWING LIKE CRAZY. THIS IS A GREAT PLANT FOR FISH SHADE AND THE TURTLES LOVE IT FOR PROTECTION ALSO. I WOULD HIHGLY RECOMEND THIS PLANT FOR ANY WATER FEATURE.

    Didn't live long

    Posted by Melanie on Apr 19th 2016

    Unfortunately, the tiny little sprig of frogbit I received did not live more than a week. I was surprised at how small the plant portion was...only had 4 leaves when I took it out of the mailing package. I've grown frogbit in my backyard pond in previous years and it covered the water surface quickly. I will have to look at other options for my pond and sadly won't be buying frogbit from this grower.
