Ever since buying plants on the For Sale forum here and a couple of other similar sites I've not seen the need to buy from too many commerical establishments. The shipping fees are usually so reasonable amongst fellow members and almost always people put in extra plants and extra amounts too. And the 2-3 WTB postings I put up usually got me numerous replies and offers within hours. Are there certain plants you need or want that you have not seen for sale here or not had a successful WTB posting?Well!
That about does that for the Tea, South Dakota folks, and, already I had gotten the feedback on the Arizona store. So that really does leave Fresh Aquarium and Aqua Botanic, plus of course, all you nice folks here (thanks again to Big Stick!).
And now for those mosses I need!
Did they say something about Tom Barr to you or is that what you picked up from this thread?They had disparaging remarks about Tom Barr without prompting. Really odd if you ask me.
I obviously can only speak from my experience. When I discussed what little I had learned at that point about water column dosing from Tom's comments on TPT, and what I had learned from lurking here, they were extremely disparaging to Tom's person, and his views, in a way I personally found shocking, to be honest. I was disappointed, as I had hoped to buy from them for the very reasons many talk about here - I had a cart ready with "their" soil, their "substrate injection system," and many plants to stock my 20H, which now numbers about 100 plants or so.Did they say something about Tom Barr to you or is that what you picked up from this thread?
I've talked to them a few times and the subject of Tom Barr never came up. They really are very helpful, extremely successful at growing plants and very knowledgeable about growing a wide range of plants.
I don't know of any other place that has such a wide variety of plants available all the time. If you do, I'd like to hear about it.
