PA good stores for plants?


Does anyone have suggestions for stores within a 2 hr. range of Carlisle PA for aquatic plants? I have been looking and havn't had any luck yet. I havn't been to TFP/TPP in Lancaster yet, but I've read mixed reviews?

I can't even find Java moss, or Java Fern!!

Thanks!

That Pet Place just outside Lancaster is my best (and only) suggestion for Harrisburg area. I live in Western PA now, but I lived in Lebanon County for three years, and TPP was very good. I'm not sure where you've seen mixed reviews of it, but I've never seen anything really bad about it here on TPT. You probably won't find rare plants, but you'll certainly find anything common there.

But I'll also point out that you would pay less and find a larger selection going with an online retailer. I used aquariumplants.com and was very happy with it.

I've been to TPP 2 times while visiting that area, and I was really impressed by the size of the store, and the amount of livestock. The plants & fish I saw when I was there were healthy. As Canoe2Can said, not a lot of rare stuff, but still a nice selection, and great prices for dry-goods.

I live within a 15min drive of TPP, and I have to say its a nice store, but like everyone else said not very rare plants, and thats where my dilema is. They def. have java fern and lace java fern there, but no java moss...I dont even think they have any form of moss there....you can certainly order online from them at www.thatpetplace.com. Their livestock is pretty decent...wouldnt buy a discus or anything of that nature from them, but everything else seems nice and healthy

I ordered plants from aquariumplants.com as well in the past, and although shipping was a bit pricey, they have a nice selection and everything came quick and as ordered...I even ordered my 10lb co2 cylinder from them!

Good Luck
Eric
