I usually get plants from Aquariumplants.com and Aquariumgarden.com but I want to find other stores that people have had good experiences with. Also, I want to be able to chose my shipping method. :) Please list any other good online stores.

Thanks all!

The best online store around is the forum. You will get better deals, better prices, better selection, better service, and not get raked on shipping costs.

Besides the swap forums and aquabid (pay attention to what country you're ordering from there), it's good to have a quality supplier online to grab things in a pinch, when they're not around otherwise.

I know I'll never get another crypt from anywhere but aquabotanic, the potted wendtiis are enough to plant an entire tank with. Robert's [aquabotanic's] customer service rep is good, too, usps priority rates and no order limit. He'll also buy your plants, last I read, Robert is essentially one of us forum users that has an online business supplied by full time nurseries.

I've gotten some interesting species and great deals from the online retailers in Asia (through ebay), but Customs comes into play there, and shipping problems often mess that attempt up for a lot of us in the US.

Try out freshwateraquariumplants.com

I bought from it from Canada, and they only ship to the US, but Don made an exception and the plants are great. They have good prices, and always throw in extra plants then what you order. Also, Don makes personal calls to every customer to make sure things are good, and that you're getting the right plants, and other helpful things like that.

I still cant find a specialty place to get more rare plants. :( I have posted requests on other forums and looked on aquabid but no luck. I don't have enough posts on here either! :(

Just read a few threads and reply. You only need 25 posts. There are so many rare plants that show up on the For Sale Forum. I've never found the rare plants at a vendor like I have found here. I have been able to find quite a few amazing plants that way. If you are growing or want to grow rare plants you must have a lot of knowledge to share and/or questions to ask. :D

do you have any plants to sell? I like to get them close by because they are healthier than having them shipped across country.
Also, I am a part of another forum. I just found this one the other day. Thats why I have such low posts. :(

I second that. Great seller.

If this was aimed at me - I just trimmed and sold tons. I won't have any posted for a week or two. Mine grow pretty fast but we have a plant meeting tonight and I'm taking trimmings there too. Next time I have some for sale, you'll find them in the For Sale Forum. :D

You need to do some more posting. Help some people out with their problems. Then you can post what you're looking for. There are some amazing plants floating around here - pardon the pun.

Manini has a store in HI that is amazing! I think his store is called Aquascapes. He carries tons of rare plants. Here is his thread.

I was hoping to get some members' feedback on Aquarium Plants.com out of Tea, South Dakota. Anyone have experience ordering from them? I've tried searching the forum for this business but so far have gotten nowhere. Thanks, g

It is very very good. I have ordered a few times from there (one time last week). I have it sent 2-3 day mail. It got to me overnight last time it was so fast! The plants were great! I really recommend this place!

Hi twychopen,

Check out Lowcoaster postings on Aquabid. If Charley doesn't have what you are looking for send him an e-mail, he will order special requests. He is on the east coast.

Another choice is Aqua Botanic, in Oregon. Both are reputable suppliers.

Thank you! Have you had trouble finding stuff on their site? I went there looking for mosses and couldn't find any. Their categories are rather general; i.e. low light plants, beginner plants, and so forth. Hey we're big boys here! We can handle just having the genera or at least the specific kind of plant as a category. There should be set up Echinodorus, Aponogeton, mosses, etc. And I sent them an email saying so. Anyone else find this rather silly?

No, I agree. They do have good plants though. They don't have a huge selection. Another place I have bought from and had good results is aquariumgarden.com. I have been hunting for more american suppliers, its just slim pickins

I have to disagree. Of all the plants I have bought on line freshwateraquariumplants.com is the worst by far. Not going to go into details and I have no agenda, it is just my experience.
