Where did you buy plants?

Well, i've been wondering, if there are online distributors of aquatic plants, there has got to be some for tropical plants that i could use in a vivarium that i'm planning to work on.

If anyone has any websites that they've bought or heard good reviews from i'd like to know I'd just like to have a view of what is available. There arent many places where I can buy plants around where I live. Most places only sell flowers ( roses, tulips, etc. )

I get all of my plants from buying and trading on this forum. Just post something you need to the buy and sell section and you will most likely get a response. This is the best way to save money and to get your PTrader rating up.

If you decide that you dont want to do this... the only website I've seen for plants is aquariumplants.com. The shipping will be insane. I have also ordered plants from liveaquaria.com but there has never been a time that they got my order correct. They get all of my dry goods orders perfect but my plant orders are always wrong.

I think he meant a place to purchase tropical plants for his vivarium...

These websites sell plants that will work in a vivarium. I have yet to find a website dedicated to plants that can grow emersed. I had no replies to my thread as well so was trying to help out with what I could.

I've heard black jungle thrown around as a possible source of plants.

Also, Devin at Riparium Supply who is a sponsor on this board usually has plants for sale that are great for vivariums and terrariums.

You might also want to check on a terrarium forum for suggestions as there are quite a few around.
