MVPets in portage has a somewhat decent selection, a lot of easy plants, but other than that you should check out the SWMAS auction coming up soon.

Edit: the auction is on Sunday October 13 at the Ken Krum Center on east clay street in schoolcraft.

I'm not a big fan of buying plants at the LFS... I'm just south of Lansing (Charlotte), so I shop Petsmart, Petco, and Preuss Pets in Lansing... none of them have what I would call quality plants. Petsmart is actually the best out of the three I think because their plants aren't usually covered in algae like Preuss has, and Petco only stocks plants in a tube or in gel packets which I haven't tried... they only have very basic plants that all look the same, and when you see something that looks different it usually looks like its about dead...

I just placed my second order with Planted Aquariums Central for plants. My first order came in and I was very pleased with the quantity of plants as well as the quality of the plants, they look much nicer than anything I've seen in a LFS. So I just placed my second order with them to get a couple more plants for my 55 gal tank that I've had running, as well as several plants to plant a new 10 gal tank I'm starting to take to work...

I'm putting together a collection of Anubias left over from my %^C Riparium build. S/B enough to 'scape a 20L. You can see some of them in my Aquaponics link.

I'll be posting pics on the Ill. Forum GCCA Nov. 3rd Swap thread in a day or two.
