SO jealous of you! I love the 'Spot! Never been to the other places. I guess I have some sightseeing to do when I'm in there next!

There are loads of stores in the Seattle area with great plants and hard to find plants. The only place I know though to get ADA soil is The Wet Spot in Portland. I am surprised Robert didn't mention that. I purchased some Ludwigia sp. "Red", Hydroctyle tripartita, and Pogostemon erectus the other day at The Fish Store and some Penthorum sedoides, Pogostemon stellatus, and Limnophila repens 'mini' all at Denny's Pet World in Kirkland. I would say that is a fantastic selection of hard to find plant material available in the Seattle area!

Hi All,

I have to agree with Mary, Seattle area LFS have some great plants if you know where to look. Occasionally A Place for Pets in Burien has Java Fern 'Trident' and Pogostemon erectus. At Sierra Fish and Pets in Renton they regularly have Nymphoides sp 'Taiwan' and occasionally they have Hygrophila pinnatifida.

Robert may have to make a trip up to Seattle and do some scouting; the selection of aquatic plants in Seattle has changed substantially in the last few years!
