Buy from the For Sale forum here.

You'll get better plants and usually a good deal on the price.

If you don't know what you want, some people sell "low tech" plant packages - a variety of plants that don't need high light or CO2 injection.

If you do know what you want, post a list in the WTB forum.

There's a lot more variety available from your fellow hobbyists here than at any local store or online site.

I have bought from several members with success.
No problems with any members on this site.

Online purchasing is tough, most want a lot for shipping.

SubstrateSource.com is my only purchase of online plants.
Their shipping rate is comparable to members shipping rates.
I cannot provide a vendor review due to forum rules.
But again I would not suggest a flawed purchase.

This guy has plants, shrimp, and fish. In my opinion they are quality and his prices are good. He also ships well packed.

I normally do agree with randym. However, I have seen the cost of plants skyrocket for some reason. Not sure why, but I've seen a lot of people asking more than they have in the past. I, personally, give almost everything away for free when it comes to trimming.

I always buy from hanaquatics.com (Han Tran) or liquidcreations.net (Thomas Bartlett). Great guys to deal with and fast communication.
