Aquarium Center in MD usually has this plant. That's where I got mine from, they have an online store too.

Be careful, Octopus plant is also the trade name for Zephyranthes candida (not sure on spelling) which is more of a marginal/ bog plant. it would suck to order a whole bunch and end up with this.

Here the call Zephyranthes candida 'dwarf crinium', because it has a bulb. The octopus plant around here is an Isoetes, which is what Aquarium Center has. Don't you just love confounded names. ](*,)

Thanks for the heads up Sean :) Their prices are reasonable..just need to see what shipping will Run. I think I will wait for nicer weather though LOL. Looks ugly on the east coast.

Thanks for the offer ming, but Aquarium center should make due unless they overcharge on shipping LOL
I do go there on occassion so if they try to overcharge you let me know and I can get them for you myself. Of course the 'finders fee' is payable in the currency of some rare plant.:biggrin:

I have the isoetes from AC. It's a great grassy plant...that doesn't send runners :) As far as weather is concerned I've noticed that shipping plants in the winter is just fine. They seem to tolerate extreme cold much better than extreme heat.

Gomer let me check my local LFS for some. I bought some awhile back, but threw it out since it outgrew my small tank..the roots were taking over! I'll be going there after class today, so around 3:30. I'll let you know if they have any left. They usually sell plants for 3.99, it's their standard price. Hopefully you can avoid shipping charges this way. =p

Maybe i phrase my statement wrong. Heh, it was back in the "Hey that looks cool lets buy it phase". It was too big for my 10g when i brought it home and i put it in anyways, but it was only a bit taller than it. Anyways, i went to my LFS and they had two pots. It's pretty local to me, but i believe you live in Irvine. So it's a bit further for you. I'll PM you the info of the LFS. They had two pots left. Call before you go just to make sure they still have it. Plant wise they're pretty unknowledgable so you might have to describe the plant to them. Check you mail box.
