Tim's House is sweet, he has great prices and will go above and beyond to get you anything you want and the best price possible. He prices things so cheap you almost refuse to deal with LFS!

+1 I haven't frequented the LFS (other than FG to pick up a fahaka) in a while because of him.

His site is more for livestock not plants. He does have a bunch of plants, but the variety is thin for the pickings. He'll definitely sell/give you plants if you ask and if he has some. What plants were you looking for?

You might have the wrong address. He's about halfway between 59 and I10 near shepherd and san felipe.

His store is his house. I don't know if he wants the entire world to know where he lives, but he's about 10 min from the Galleria on the opposite side of the freeway.

All his stock is either listed on his site or on Houston Fish Box. On HFB it's constantly updated with current stock, and he'll post upcoming stock. I would check what you want first, and then contact him about stopping by. You wouldn't want to go and end up leaving empty handed though I never leave empty handed lol.

On his site it just said to contact him about local pickups. I figured he'd give me his address then.

I did not know about HFB. I'll check that out.

You don't lmao! I've yet to see that plant in any of the LFS and nobody I know in Houston has it. Your best bet to hopefully to find someone else on TPT that has it but out of state and have them ship it to you. You could try Aquabid too.

Anybody need some dry ferts or anything from GLA? I have a group buy going on right now over on Houston Fish Box. We're already at free shipping, assuming money is dropped off or sent by Thursday. When the order comes in, pick up would have to be either at 77088 or 77027.

Sorry Chester. Give me a couple months to make sure I can grow it in different conditions, and then I will spread it around!

I do not want to steal the pogostemon helferi thunder from kdv9tb. It does sound like you have some great plants.

However, I wanted to share this. Petsmart has increased their tissue culture plant offering. Including:

Picture an info thanks to fellow SAAPC member Adam.

I always prefer mom and pop or hobbyist but it is nice to see them embracing the tissue culture plants.
