Plants on long Island

Where does everyone buy their plants? I've checked my lfs (Caribbean blue) to no avail. Was thinking about making a trip out to monster in Queens as a last resort. I'm mainly looking for anubias java fern and a few others. Anyone have any advice?

pets warehouse in copiague often has some decent plants. anubias and java fern are often in the tanks under the african cichlids. They have a few other tanks filled with plants as well. Also in Suffolk is BTJs Jungle (few miles east of caribean blue on Sunrise Hwy also). They have some plants; but not too great of a selection if I recall.

the only other "local" place I'd try is the other pets warehouse location in carle place/westbury/glen cove. Not sure what town they actually refer to it as; but it is on glen cove road a bit north of old country road in a shopping center that can be hard to spot. I think there is a tj max or maybe a marshalls or something like that in there with them.

Other than that, I've had nothing but fantastic results purchasing from other members on this forum. I've actually met a few local long islanders from here and bought from them with great results and have also had plenty of plants shipped by other users also with great results.

I honestly completely forgot about btjs haha I'll give them a shot. Also I've never been into a pets warehouse so I'll check them out too. Thanks for the advice.
