I like http://www.plantedaquariumscentral.com/ although the selection is not as large as some others online sites. Also, I've used aquariumplants.com -- bigger selection.

The For Sale/trade sub-forum is also a good place to look: https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/fo...play.php?f=153

Or if you're looking for specific plant(s) post a request in the WTB/ROAK subforum here: https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/fo...play.php?f=156

Aquariumplants.com is always a good choice as is Bamaplants.com. And Han, username h4n on here has some great, hard to find, stuff too.

I mean, if we can ship plants out under $7 using priority mail with 2 to 3 days delivery time, why should people pay over $18 on 2 days shipping using one of these online vendors? It makes no sense to pay only $7 on plants and paying $15 on shipping. Ordering from these places make sense if you are trying to stock up for a new tank and spending over $50 on plants.

Thanks for all the comments. I would buy off here from members but this is a new setup. I will need lots of plants for what I plan to do.

Plenty of people on TPT can sell you enough plants, quantity, quality, and variety included, to fully plant a 120g.

I used to always respond HERE!!! to this question.

Currently I only advise to buy here with CAUTION.

I typically have bought/traded with those I know like h4n, OVT. I tried to expand my circle and got burned 3 times in three transactions.

Poor quality plants, plants not shipped on the day promised, not shipped by the method promised and paid for.

The 1st red flag to look for is if that person is actually contributing member vs some that's only here to make money.

I've learned PayPal arbitration is basically a joke. I now go straight to my CC co. and dispute the charges.

The feed back on Itrader here & APC is nothing more that Facebook type bonding love fest. Everyone is afraid to leave neg. feedback on bad sellers or buyers due retribution comments.

So become involved, talk to each other and support your friends here.

Yea if you don't see something post a want to buy add. I have found every plant I have ever wanted here. Everyone is nice and includes extras. I don't think I have ever paid vendor prices on here. Even for rare plants everyone here is reasonable.

I used to use the vendor sites and feel I got robbed. They would send you emersed plants and not tell you, or sent you stems when you wanted something different.

Can't go by that either...I tried

Got burned bad by a "contributing member".....

When I tried to leave negative feedback, it was deleted...
...because the "contributing member" told the mods that the transaction had taken place outside of the forum..
...I send them the PM's..showing it did not...sent the mods the link to his ad in the for sale/trade forum...and a copy of the money order I sent with the list

...still would not let me post negative feedback

I found my happy place...
...right at the bottom of the learning curve
