Tropica plants can only be purchased from Tropica. Horizon
Growers is an independent company that has the right to use the
Tropica method of growing emersed plants for aquarium use. There
is no direct link between Tropica and Horizon beyond this.
Tropica does not oversee the production practices of Horizon
Growers. They _do_ offer many of the same species as Tropica, but
these plants are _not_ Tropica plants, and will not be in Tropica
pot or carry the distinctive (and useful) Tropica care and I.D.
One further caveat. If you are going to buy one of Horizon's
"assortments" make sure you can specify that you want true
aquarium plants _only_.
