"GREAT START for a planted tank" The Beginner's Planted Aquarium Combo
Beginners Listen Up. This combo is for you. If you are a pro and you know it all, buy plants individually or see what I have shaking with the higher level combos. (Golden Touch Combos are here) IF not: Dear Billy Beginner, I love beginner's because everyone was one at some point and if you get off to a good start you will soon have multi-tank-itis. ( A great problem many planted tank people have) But if you are looking at me for a beginner's planted combo; I am going to keep it super easy for you. These combos are easy plants and will make it so you have success right out of the gate.
Don't ask me if you can swap in plants on a beginner combo. You can't.
If you want specific plants, get them, I sell a crap load of them. IF YOU WANT TO TRUST ME TO HOOK YOU UP WITH PLANTS THAT WONT DIE- THIS COMBO IS FOR YOU. Sincerly, Dustin DustinsFishtanks Beginner planted tank combos are 5 different species of plants that are hardy-that's it. ---I pick them, not you.
A Beginner Planted Tank Combo comes with everything you need to get started....
10 Stems of Jungle Val 5 Stems of Dwarf Sag 5 Stems of Bacopa Monnieri 5 Leaves on a Java Fern 1 Anubias with over 5 leaves And... the most valuable part... Dustin's Dirted Tank Question ..and a few FishtankTV stickers. (images of all of it up soon!) All for 49$ plus shipping. Start your tank off right from the start. Start off with a beginners planted tank combo. (You can always add more and different plants later, but this is how you get started)
NOTE: I reserve the right to slightly alter this and all beginner combos based on supply at the time...but they will be hardy plants regardless.
On a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being plants that can grow in your Toilet) (10 being near impossible) THESE ARE ALL LEVEL 1 to 3 Plants :)
We believe in starting with EASY AQUARIUM PLANTS.... having success and moving on to more advanced once you have momentum.

This is my second order of a "Pack" from Dustin . . . and the plants look great! (I've not been able to plant them yet into Dustin's Dirt because the sand for the top layer hasn't arrived yet from a big box store. UGH!!) So I can't comment on how well the plants will do yet. My only "complaint" (too strong a word) is that the pack did not include Jungle Val nor the Bacopa that is listed on the "usual" contents of the "Great Start" combo. I know Dustin warned that he may change up the plants based on availability, so I'm not blaming him. I just really wanted the exact plants listed in the combo, especially the Jungle Val for my new 36 gal tall tank for new angel fish. But I'm sure the ones I got will be fine, and I'll order additional JV. The other suggestion I'd make is that I wish there was a list of the actual plants included when there are any changes from the list on the site. I know "experts" know right away from looking at the plants what they are, but I'm so new to aqua plants that I have a hard time even matching them to Dustin's nice photo pamphlet he sends. LOL. Yup, I'm a newbie! :) All being said, I can't wait to throw these stems into the Dustin Dirt and let them take off! :)
I was very impressed with how beautiful and healthy the plants were when they arrived. A few days in my tank and they are not looking so good. So I’m going to purchase their plant food next. Hopefully it will bring them back to the state Dustin had them. But I’m very happy with my purchase.
Total live planted tank noob and everything came alive and well and the helpful instructions are excellent. I've not killed them yet! Beautiful selection.
I received my plants yesterday. They were very well packaged and looked great. I was pleasantly surprised at the number of plants that were sent. I will definitely order again.
Came about two weeks after the purchase. Company was very good about delaying shipping when the hurricane rolled around. The plants themselves were packed very well in a moist airtight bag. Only feedback I’d give is that some plants were swapped out and it would have been helpful to know exactly what I got as I am indeed a beginner and can’t distinguish by sight which makes plants should be in the substrate vs not. Overall very pleased!
