Please sell me low light plants! CANADA

I'm in Canada and pet stores suck. I want to start a planted tank and all of the online sites have absolutely ridiculous shipping costs or no stock. Please, sell me ALL THE PLANTS!!

Just wondering if you've tried e-bay?

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

It is if you read the seller's feedback. Just make sure you buy from someone with 98% customer rating or higher. I've gotten some smoking deals on plants from ebay before.

I am looking right now and it just all seems so expensive. I mean the plants aren't so bad but the shipping is what kills me. I really want some hydrocotyle sp. japan and they are selling 5 nodes for 8$ that seems pretty steep and then shipping is 25$. so for 5 leaves i'm gonna pay over 33$ and I'll have to wait over a week and a half to get it :(

That's obviously way too much. Keep looking to find sellers in Canada. You can check Aquabid for Canadian sellers as well.

We have a lot of Canadian members so someone might be able to point you in a good direction.

I'm hoping so. Thats why I posted this. I am hoping if no Canadian member has any of their own to sell, they can at least tell me where to buy.

I am not Canadian but I found a few places. My observation is that live plants are pricey. I'd like to do some but just like silk plants it's going to have to be a little a time.

Opening soon:

Open now but I didn't see the plant you want:

I only ordered marimo moss from them in terms of plants and they arrived perfect.
But these guys I would recommend, they may take a while to get to you but correspondance with the workers is almost immediate, and if your product doesn't reach you they send replacements at no cost (which means if both packages end up arriving, you keep both)

If it got to Newfoundland, it will get to you :)
