Best place to buy Bucephalandra

I'm looking to get some Buce for my tank along with 4-6 cryptocoryne spiralis, and a bunch bundle of rotala indicia and a bunch bundle of bacopa caroliniana, I have so many different recommendations I have no idea who's reputable with plant health /shopping etc etc. I have looked at Buceplant website and they look really decent and decently priced and I don't see much negative reviews, but I was referred to like 10 other places to look into, some being way more expensive than others, I Cant afford $20.00 for 1 Buce.

Also maybe ideas on people's favorite Buce species.

You already got 10 recommendations. Are you looking for 10 more?

I didn't need more, maybe just a preference of where your go To place is would be better.

My go to is right here in the For Sale section. Failing that, I usually just hit up fleabay. I've purchased from both Buceplant and Hans when I couldn't find what I was looking for here... which is rare. Hans prices are ridiculous for the portions of bucephalandra you get. Buceplant is a little more generous with their portions and they have starter packs too.

I would put out a WTB post in the member forums for the species of buce you want before looking anywhere else.

Yeah I just looked at hans and holy sheet, I know he's good but 30.00 for a very small plant ouch, I'm just starting out and I have more than just Buce to get, I need Buce, rotala indicia, cryptocoryne spiralis, bacopa caroliniana, and thank you for the straight forward answer

I don't know what he has available, but I started my buce collection with a purchase from member Bartohog. I kept getting overwhelmed trying to pick through all the different varieties. I finally messaged him and asked him to put together a $40 variety pack. I was very happy with what I received. He has a huge variety of plants and he's great to deal with.

Well, my LFS is usually my go-to for aquarium plants. They have a good selection, and usually have one or two Bucephalandra for sale. (They threw in one for free when I got a bunch of plants a while ago, that's how I have mine)

I don't really know any specific place other than my LFS. I would check all the above recommended places regularly to see if you can get a good deal.

I ordered from Buceplants.Com, I was going to order from hans but he honestly didn't have many of any to choose from
