I actually buy a lot of the rare plants for my own use from fellow hobbyist too. I had a really nice Flame Sword at one time that got destroyed by a couple bristle nose plecos. I get all my riccia from hobbyist. That's one plant that doesn't really ship from overseas very well.Robert Hudson said:I actually buy plants from hobbyists when I have the opportunity. My current Riccia supplier is a hobbyist. I have bought java moss, Micranthemoides, and all sorts of plants from hobbyists that are tank grown when someone can offer me a large enough quantity to make it worthwhile for me, but that is rare.
