So I was working yesterday and a new package came in.

Petco has just put out 14" bendable vines that are covered in java moss. They can be grown emerged or immersed and are only $3.99! That's a really competitive price considering the amount of moss that's on it and the work it takes to mount it onto the vine.

I was looking for them on the net but nothing yet. I'll pick some up on my next paycheck and post some pictures.

Think he was hoping that it was sold packaged out of fish tank. So would be contaminent free. I dont think i would buy if sold out of a community fish tank, but i will be going tommoro to see if they have this.

Unfortunately, thats the only place the stores will be able to keep it. You can ask to special order a batch in and specify that they don't place it in the tanks. I was tempted to buy them all when I saw them come in but I didn't have the space and money. I'm sure a bleach dip and a month to grow out and green up would do the job.

just make sure to bleach soak it and keep it really moist while you transition it to growing emersed. Don't forget to post pictures!

Helped a customer the other day and he happened to find out about the product because of this thread. How ironic!

I treated mine in a 5% bleach solution and put them in the tank. I bought 4 and only used 2. they seem to be doing well. The vines dont hold as much moisture as I would like but It is nice to see some vines. They seem to be greening up well. Id like to try an experiment where I lay them on moist spag. I want to see if it will spread from there.
