    I was very pleased when I received my delivery. All the plants were packed thoughtfully, healthy and a good size. If comparison to other on-line suppliers I've tried in the past, Lily Blooms was a 100% positive experience. Thank you!

    pretty much dead

    Posted by Rod Engleson on Jun 8th 2017

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

    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.
