No, I didn't recommend
3/4 of the Elodea I received was dead and unable to photosynthesize. After calling they promptly sent me a new order but who want to order something twice?

These plants arrived on-time. Ordering was easy and I like that I could choose the date of my shipment and arrival. These plants are helpful in photosynthesis labs. I get extra so I can keep them all year long in the classroom.
