Petland Discounts DEFINITELY have them. And if they don't they will get it for you on their next shipment too. They charge $3.99 for a potful....I've bought a ton from them over the last three months.

I love the growth over the water surface, it's a great plant. If you want some tomorrow the Petland Discounts in manhattan on W23rd street has some for sure, I was just there yesterday.

Got any pics that you'd be willing to share? I'm debating how much to buy myself.

I have a 28 inch tall 75 gallon tank and there are still foot long leaves floating on the tank surface. I've heard the plant doesn't look nice when the leaves are trimmed.

Thanks Option! I happened to be right down the block today so stopped in and bought them out. Can't wait til my leaves get super long.
