haha thanks everyone. i think ill go check some places out tomorrow. it's been a while!
i found some anubias locally so that's good but im still looking for some h.m.! the one person who has in the city is a bit hard for me to get to.. unless i do trek out to pacific and win tomorrow.

for LFS, i'd say Pacific has been consistently getting stocking some interesting varieties.
Not in the city but Pets warehouse (both carle place and copaigue) occassionally stock interesting things but they generally focus on ferns, crypts and easy stems like cabomba and anacharis. Most of their potted plants come from a florida nursery.
I heard much hype about the copaigue store and was not so impressed when i went there.
Honestly, I have more fun looking at Joraan's tanks.
There are some local hobbyists that have kept species in fantastic shape and form so offering to purchase may score you something beautiful that normally isnt available at retail in the area.

|Monster Fish||I think to get the best variety, you will have to travel out to LI.|

|Jason K||new world aquarium near grand central also had decent plant variety, but it's been a while since i've been there|

|Jason K||i agree pacific is probably the best bet in the city. if you're willing to take a trip to NJ, Ridgewood Aquarium Imports had tons of plant variety, and alot of ADA swag, and really nice ADA display tanks. I live in midtown west, and it was about a 30 min drive.|

I've bought good anubias and amazon sword plants from petsmart.

|Monster Fish||Pacific is the one on Delancey Street. Win is on Broome St and Mott St.|

Pacific sells 5-7 stems of any plant for $6.99-7.99
Petco sells plants for beginner
123 store sells healthy plant
|02-14-2013 07:46 PM|
for now, just h.m. and bunch of anubias nana or petite i can find.
i want to see some in person before i have any ideas on buying any specific plant.
|02-14-2013 07:38 PM|
pacific has a good selection... usually for $$
Win is pretty good too, but their plants may come with algae and what not...
Petco in Union square actually sells a variety of beginner plants... what are you looking for exactly?
