Dumb question, when buying plants, what do you get with "one" plant? Like if I buy online and I add an anubias, is it just one stem? Is it safe to assume that it's about the same as what would come in a Petco tube?

Anubias and java fern would be one plant, if you get stem plants, usually it will be in a bunch (like 5+ stems unless otherwise noted), then sword plants are usually one, and then plants sold in pots you will normally get multiple plants, some, like crypts, will most likely need to be broken up if you want multiple plants. It is fairly easy to do, just getting their roots separated is the most annoying thing, since you want them to have a good root system, so they come back when they melt.

I normally get mine on Aquabid from MikesWetPets. Great Seller, low prices, LOTS of options, and cheap shipping. Press buy it now on 1 plant and add whatever else you want when you e-mail him. Always adds extras.
