Can't remember as it was quite a few months ago.Got more as they've spread about abit since then.The postage depends on how much you buy.For one zoa frag it's about a tenner.

To get zoas to look their best, they do need a decent amount of light, especially under blue/actinic bulbs as many of them fluoresce and don't display the best colours under just day light bulbs. Therefore most zoas are colourful as long as you keep them under the right lights and don't need to seek out especially colourful morphs in order to create a nice display. Wammin water melons and radioactive greens are sold by most LFS and although under day light bulbs they may not look like anything special, they really come alive under blue lights.
