Just to let you know, that in my one & only order from That Fish Place, my
plants looked pretty straggley too (they arrived within a week though) &
I was missing some, but they were excellent in customer service & removing
charges on the ones I didn't recieve. The plants ended up being very hardy
& survived & flourished. So my advice is go ahead & plant them all, you
should see some growth pretty soon & definetely call & tell them about the
ones that were missing.
I've never tried other mailorder places so I can't compare, sorry.
