The swap and shop right here is the best! Better prices and most likely better quality plants

I have ordered plants from several different places. It really depends on how much it's going to cost you in the end. Each person may prefer one place over another but being realistic cost should be your overall factor. I just made a purchase tonight from an aquatic plant store on-line.

Do be cautious about those who have large S/H fees. I suggest paying more from another source than being screwed by a greedy seller.

If you only want a few plants then use the swap and shop here. You can get many plants, animals, and other items. I have made 3 purchases from here in the past month myself.

Last of all I suggest always using Paypal or refusing to purchase from them. Paypal protects you BOTH. This way you don't get mush instead of plants and they know they are going to get their money.

Last of all RESEARCH your plants BEFORE you buy!!! If you are not sure if they will make it in your tank then ask here on the forum before buying.

I would say here also, but also consider how much they have to travel. Just because its sunny and 73 in San Diego I get some plants from some guy close to me in Yuma and for him its 110 The weather is always a concern. Think about heat packs or cold packs the latter I would wait till it cools off.
You can put out a request for plants too, if you want a bunch of different things and you have done all your research Or find a mail order that has what you want and ask about them specifically. Good luck !!!
