Where to buy low light non co2 plants

I had been looking at aquabid for a while but it seems to be quite lacking in different varieties of plants... where do you guys buy from and what is your favorite? I ask this because the only place that is near me is a petsmart that only sells needle ludwigia lol.

I buy almost all my plants here on this forum. There are several sellers who consistently have a large variety of plants at good prices. I have several LFS locally that sell plants and I can almost always find better prices here.

This thread will give you a good list of low light plants
Excellent List of Low Light Plants

When you finish with the list, you can go look on this forum to see if anyone selling the plants you like. If not, I have needle leaf java fern, hydrocotyle sp. japan, and crypt wendii to offer

I would post a WTB thread with a list of plants here on TPT, or just say what you said in your subject line.

If you mention what size tank and how densely you want it planted, then people like myself could come up with an appropriate package: you would not want an Amazon Sword in a 10g tank

A picture of the tank will help even more to come up with recommendations.
