    I tried planting it this year and it looks pretty droopy right now. I may put it back just on the water.

    They are starting to leaf up

    I was a little worried at first because they fif not look very happy when they arrived, but I understand that plants can get stressed in shipping. After a few days they perked up and now look adorable floating on the water. I hope they flower. That would be an added bonus to the pretty leaves

    This plant along with the others I ordered were delivered on time and in great shape. I have always been able to count on Lilyblooms.

    sensitive plant

    Came to me nice and healthy with a piece that was about 18 inches long with a bloom on it. I was worried at first when the fish started eating it all, but it bounced back and took off growing and blooming again. So dainty even though I chose the large size. It's so pretty in the water and the fish not only love to eat it they love to hide under it.

    I had this last year for the first time and am getting it again this year. I like the yellow flowers and it works well in the pond with the parrot feather to give the fish great cover.

    Great Company

    I ordered a number of items that had to be shipped to the Florida Keys. Everything was extremely well packed and the products arrived in very good shape and in a timely manner...snails and a number of different floating plants. The giant sensitive plants were just that...large and healthy.

    Pretty, Healthy, but not much of it.

    Received in good condition but was smaller in size/amount than expected (only one 12 inch piece)
