Buying Plants Online?

so whos done it and where you did it from?

im looking for a US Based Reseller, that has got good ratings from people who actually use it not people who get paid to write good comments on their websites

since both my local Petco and Petsmart seem to never have my plants in stock and have no idea when they will ever arrive, im resorting to the last thing i wanted to do ... buying plants online, my Anacharis is a turning brown and im not really liking the look of them to begin with... so im thinking of transfering Elvis back to his old 5gal , tear down my 10g dry it out clean it good, and start building the live tank....

what im looking for: the idea is low tech...low maintenance!

My plan is driftwood coverd in mass (java or christmas)
i need some micro sword for my front sides to middle covering, and then the back needs java ferns and anubais as fillers, this will all be made around a decor so the fishy still has a spot to live, and then once tank has settled Elvis will go back into the 10g...

i already have a 15lb bag of FloraMax sitting in my closet.... now i just need to get all the plants in at the same time so i can get it setup and ready to go

They're GREAT! I ordered plants and they arrived in fantastic condition even after really late shipping because it was right after some holiday. Also, once you checkout to pay, it'll ask if you have a coupon. Type BETTAFISH in all caps, no space, and you recieve 10% off (due to one member advertising her website here once) They also happen to have all of those plants.

If guppies are jewels, than Bettas must be rainbows

I've used them a handful of times and have never been disappointed.

I don't see why it wouldn't be Betta safe?

Another site you could try is aquabid. I have been looking and have seen some really good prices. If you want American just make sure the item you want has a little US flag icon on it.

Will you post back about how this order goes? I was planning to order from the a while back but then I read a lot of negative reviews of azgardens. To be fair, most of those negatives involved fish orders. But I was leary to buy plants based on those reviews anyway. They did however just send me a coupon in my e-mail and I'm still trying to decide if I should take a chance.

well i called in and spoke w/ the guy.... i was quite pleased with him, he made the business very personal and had good a good report with me.... we chatted for a good 10-15mins about random things and the world ending on May 21 2011 and how much crap that was, all while he was putting through my order....

so far ive enjoyed my experience with them, said i should have my order by Friday.... i expressed how please i was with the service and if all goes well i will be returning service when i decide to my 5gal....
