where does everyone buy plants...

hey gang,

i am looking to buy some more plants since i got my co2 system in place. the problem i am finding that my current plant setup are full of plants that grow:
#1 tall #2 narrow.

so i jumped online and when to the site i last bought my plants ( www.liveaquaria.com ) and looked for more.. problem is that all i reallt see are more tall and narrow..
can anyone recommend some plants that grow wide and are full of volume?
anyone have some other sites they recommend to find plants?

more importantly.. plant names????

I'm spoiled, I get most of my plants from my local club. If there's a club anywhere near you, I strongly suggest checking it out.

There are lots of offerings here on the Swap and Shop section of the forum.

You might want to browse through the plant profiles on the site, to get an idea of what you want.

Practically all of my plants come from the swap n shop but I sometimes buy a thing or 2 (literally only have 1 or 2 plants) from aquabid. I can't find any of my plants at the lfs. I can say that much. The quality on the boards is just much superior than anything I can get at a retail store.
