Mmm wat is dat
Toen ik de plantjes binnen kreeg dacht ik "wat is dat!!". Maar nadat ik ze in mijn aquarium had geplaatst moet ik toch bekennen dat het top kwaliteit is wat ik geleverd heb gekregen. Alle plantjes doen het perfect.
Met een portie kon ik maar 3 stekjes van maken. Dat is niet veel. Maar ze zijn wel erg mooi. Het groeit nu ook best goed. Dus binnenkort kan ik de nieuwe stekjes opnieuw planten.
