Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product I bought these for a biology lab for my high school students. I accidentally ordered them a month before the lab and I was a bit worried about keeping them alive long enough for them to work as a model for photosynthesis rates. They were shipped right on time, secure in their packaging, and about 80% survived the month in less-than-ideal conditions. I will purchase again next year!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from usually in fair condition, does not last long I've ordered Elodea from Carolina 6 times, in June, September, and February. Usually the plants are in a usable condition but quickly deteriorate within a few days (the leaves turn brown or clear and fall apart). I generally have to spend some time discarding dead plants upon arrival. One time, the bunch I bought was completely black, I called for a replacement, and they promptly sent me a healthy, completely green batch.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Should Not Be Shipped in Poor Condition I ordered this at a time when I knew it would not be robust due to lack of natural light. However, this is my time to study photosynthesis and this is an excellent plant to use in labs. I received it on Wednesday (I think) and by Friday it was slimy and in such poor condition I had to switch plans and labs to one that used spinach. I did keep it in water in an aquarium with light. I think it would be best not to sell it at all if it is in poor condition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Is elodea susceptible to bacteria or fungal spore Plants arrived very healthy. I placed them in a large 2 gallon glass bowl and put them under a grow light. They carried out photosynthesis with lots of little bubbles forming on their leaves. Very pleased! Within a week, there were no bubbles and the plant texture was very slimy. Within another week they were disintegrating into mush. My room has been tested for mold spores and will get results soon. I did a bacterial test kit on the slime on the surface of the water that came back positive for two types of bacteria. My classroom aquarium is full of orange bacteria or fungi. This may seem rhetorical in light of classroom issues but is it possible something in the air infected the plants? I will need to buy more plants and want to keep them alive.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ive seen better from Carolina I'm not sure what is up but I have bought elodea from Carolina in the past with no problems. I bough this for a demonstration of cytoplasmic streaming. The plants were covered with so much algae that it was hard to find leaves that were unobstructed for viewing the streaming. I'm ordering another batch soon, and I'm hoping it will be better.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing The stems were a brownish green, no new growth evident and about 50% of the leaves on the stems were dead and decaying. As a teacher, I've made many purchases from Carolina over the years. This was the first time I've been dissapointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from All brown and Died This Elodea arrived half brown. I tried to salvage it and picked out the brown parts, but they all died and ruined our experiment. I am very disappointed.
