Yes, and they have worked out fine for me. Be sure to know what plants you are getting, as some are not fully aquatic. I bought a nice looking anubias before.

I just learned this today. I had bought Amazon swords and Wisteria from Petco before and they are doing well, then today I bought some Kyoto/Mondo grass (semi-aquatic). I should do some research before I make impulsive buys. I hope they will live.
