Plants I've gotten from sellers here have far outweighed both quality and quantity of anything local petco has ever had

Yup, this forum is the place to go for HUGE variety plus quality. People here take the hobby very seriously and will sell good plants and you will find way better quality than anything at your LFS

You can get them here hut when you ask if they have snails I wouldn't trust them. I bought some from a guy he said no they are snail free. Now I have a snail problem.

Snails are just a given in this hobby and they're typically a sign of a healthy tank.

Don't let snails deter you from buying plants from a fellow hobbyist here on the forum. It's a small price to pay for quality in my opinion.
