Help finding some hard to find plants.

hi -

I usually shop my LFS, Aquabotanic, or aquariumplants.com.

Trouble is - their inventory is fairly static. Annubia, Glosso, Ludwiga, etc. Very common stuff.

Are there other sites I should be checking out? I just had a pretty big die off and I would like to grab:

Eustralis Stellata
Limnophila aromatica
Pogostemon stellatus

Any ideas?

I have no idea whether this is a good outfit; however, their website sure turns me on...

These two are the same plant, however, I have those, but just sold what I had available to sell of the Stellata, but I have plenty of the L. Aromatica, if you don't find any of these within a couple weeks, send me a message I will be growing out more ES.

People had some problems during the summer, but it should be fine now. I ordered from aquaspot and was greatly satisfied. That said, you'll find some very unhappy customers out there. I think Aquaspot is legit, and will become a really great supplier-- it's just that they're still a fledgling business, and have had some incidents where there were a few snags in the process.

You are right here in Portland? I have Eusteralis, (Pogostemon). There are two variations. Standard/narrow leaf, and broad leaf. The broad leaf version is a faster grower and much easier to keep. I have the narrow leaf version. I had Limnophila aromatica a couple months ago. Not a big seller. I can get it for you if you wish the next time I do an import. I have two shipments coming into the Portland airport this friday. One from Inonesia and one from Florida. It will be two or three weeks before my next one, depending on how business goes. As the November and December holidays get closer, business is usually much slower.

Steven, thanks for the short introduction. We are 100% legit so no worries there.

The listed plants are commonly in stock. Right now, it's cold in most parts of USA and plants do ship very well during the winter months. No more worries about the heat!

Have you try aquabid? They are not really rare. Aquabid sometimes have a wider variety.

I placed an order at Aquaspotworld

I found everything I was looking for (and more - like Rotala Macranda) there.

The prices were a wee bit higher than Aquariumplants or Aquabotanic, but the selection was **HUGE** second to none.

Plus - $15 overnight shipping more than made up for the slightly more expensive plants.

If everything shows up alive and as ordered I will be a happy dude
