Buying Flowering Plants

Hi Everyone. I am currently looking for any flowering plants for cheap. I don't wanna spend too much on them but I do have CRS or weeping moss to trade for them. Please let me know. Thanks =D.

i like petunias but they are only annuals. Begonias are my favorite and gerbera daisies a close second.

Let's see, the most common one has been Bacopa monnieri

I have been trying like hell to get my lilies, lotus, and submerged ludwigia to bloom. Put have had no success.

Now the Question is you want to Flower Under water or above water? Under water...Very difficult...Except some Crypt, anubias and handful of other sp...Polygonum praetermissum 'Ruby' is the plant that flowers in my tank constantly..

Cheers!!!
