Exclamation Java Moss and surface plants

I want to purchase some java moss I can not find it in any store at all and I'm getting very annoyed I have my heart set on it and I'm going to get some. If you are selling I am willing to buy I live in Spokane if you can ship it I'll pay for shipping and whatever you charge for it. I also would like a surface plant I'm not a huge fan of duckweed but I'm willing if its all I can get or is the best option I was hoping for something more like water sprite.

I just started a NPT. i got all my plants from:
http://www.shop.plantedaquariumscentral.com/
I used BETTAFISH (all caps) as a coupon code and got 10% off the entire purchase!! Plus, her shipping prices aren't as bad as most other online aquarium plant stores (trust me, I looked around for months). She even sent me 3 extra bunched plants!! 2 in a species that I had ordered and 1 that I had been kinda eyeballing for awhile.

I got Java moss in the mail .. . 75% of it was dead and brown. And I bought 3 packages! I really want more but I am afraid to waste more money. It stinks trying to order live plants when it's summer and you live in the desert. :(

Actually I just realized the one order I got that was in good shape was from planted aquariums.com like you just said. The dead moss was from someone else.

current pets: Alejandro Marmalade

Rehomed bettas (because of my move):
Cornelius Buttknuckle, Limoncello Dandy Lion, Cumulus Meriweather, Nimbus McCloud

RIP
Pinkerton Flowers and the fish formerly known as Prine Purplius LeGrape

I bought some frogbit and java moss from trinsfish on eBay a little over a week ago. The seller ships from Ohio which is pretty close to me so the plants arrived fast and very healthy. Although it does come with some snails and quite a lot of duckweed, but once I gave it all a good rinsing there wasn't any problem.

As far as surface plants go, I really like my frogbit. It looks like a bunch of lily pads and is actually pretty cute in my tank. Another plus is that although its supposed to be a pretty fast growing plant, it won't get as out of control as duckweed would.
