There are places you can get java fern online, other than live aquaria. You can go to www.aquabid.com, http://shop.plantedaquariumscentral.com/, or http://www.bobstropicalplants.com/store/catalog/index.php?cPath=23_29. I've order from mikeswetpets from ebay [Ebay Link Removed] and can recommend them. Not to mention, you could post want-to-buy ads here on plantedtank.net or on other, similar sites, like www.aquaticplantcentral.com or www.aquariumadvice.com.

Personally, I don't think it's worth placing a small order with live aquaria. You'd spend as much or more on shipping with them as you would on the actual product you're ordering. If you get on aquariumadvice.com, severumama and HN1 are great sellers. I've done business with them as well and can highly recommend them.

stuffs a slow grower...but its impossible for it to die
I converted a fresh tank to 1.011 brackish in preparation for some Hawaiian red shrimp. It can survive in salty water as well, at least so far. My stems died off after a week or so, but the java fern appears to be fine so far (2 weeks in.) Lilaeopsis brasiliensis is actually doing better in brackish than it ever did in fresh.

Java fern is found in brackish waters in the wild. Probably one of the hardiest plants when it comes to salt in the water. I find it at all the LFS here, and Petco and Petsmart sell it in the little tubes that don't require water. I've seen regular and Windov.
