Buying Plants Online??

Is this a "yay" or a "nay"?
I am wondering what issues can arise from buying plants online and what precautions would you have to take if you did so.
Also, if there is a green light for buying plants online, what sites would you recommend and not recommend.(I would need one that can ship to Canada)

I think buying plants online is fine just make sure you give them a good soak before you put them in your tank, I cant help with what websites as im from London but ebay is always worth a look.

Good luck

I've heard good things about this place, and they do ship to canada! They have a great selection in my opinion.

Aquariumplants.com is a great site to order plants from, its where I got all of mine. The plants usually come with small baby snails on them which can also be a plus.
