What are some reliable sites to buy live plants from?

I have looked on plantedaquariumcentral.com but there is a message on the right saying they are closing checkout until september 1. I know that is only a few days but would like to know other reliable options. Thanks

I've wondered the same thing. I've bought a lot from people of this site. I've also gotten a lot of incorrect plants, plants with lots of algae when they said there was none and poor packaging. Most of these are from the major sellers on this board. I hate to say it, but I wish I knew a good source.

Moss is the worst. Buy a moss type on here and you will get a ball of 5 types of moss mixed in.

I would wait until the people at planted aquarium central get back. I have bought plants from them several times and I am always happy with the packaging and the plants.

I've never had problems buying from people on this site. Get a lot of reeeeally good deals here!

Other than that, I've been very pleased with Bama Plants and recommend them highly.

Extraplant.us is also a great source. The shipping rates are fairly decent too if you live in the Southeast, as their supplier is the Florida Aquatic Nursery.
