Good places to buy plants online?

Ok, so I want to get some good plants for my 75gal im setting up and other then this site I was wondering what other good places there are out there to order plants from, (excluding aquabid) I'd like to get plants that are a little harder to find, not just your classic. Thanks.

Just post a WTB topic (want to buy) with a list of the plants.
Here is the best place in the world and probably in the nearest solar systems.

A heavily planted shrimp tank is possible!

I got some good "not so hard to find" plants from aquariumplants.com when I first started out and I really liked them at the time. Shipping was like $30 though and they dont have exotic stuff... TPT for sale section really is top notch and I wish I found it earlier. I know you said places other than this site, but thats like asking the best zebra meat butcher in town if he knows of a good zebra meat butcher. ya... I came up with that myself...

Ahh, that makes sense. Paypal is pretty easy and safe but you do need to attach a creditcard to it so that deters alot of people. I have seen at least one person here selling something and say they would take a check mailed to them for what thats worth. You could try a WTB and include the fact that you cant use paypal, might be a long shot but its worth a try if that works.
Another option would be to join a local aquarium/plant club and get a ride to the meetings. They usually sell hard to find stuff and at great prices!

I could try my dad. That has a very small chance of success however lol. I would love to join GSAS (seattle aquarium club) but its a little out of the way.

Hi kribkeeper888,

GSAS is a great club and we are always willing to help the next generation of aquarists. We have members that drive from Bellingham, Portland, and E. Washington to attend our meetings. If I can do anything to help, just send me a PM. Christal Kasselmann is next Saturday night, 15th of September!

Hi kribkeeper888,

If you need a few plants and you see I have them let me know and I will ship you some; all you need to do is cover the postage. I'll ship the plants to you and trust you to figure how to get the postage to me.

Thanks so much, If I see any plants you ever have for sale I might be interested in I will let you know. I would also be more then happy to pay for the cost of any plants. Being as we live 1/2 mail days apart I'm sure we could find a way to cover shipping/plant cost.

Problem is they dont have a very large selection and they dont have any of the harder to find plants or mosses
