Question Good place to buy "easy" plants for cheap?

I want to add more plants to my 10 gal but anywhere I look I just can't find a good deal. I'm not exactly a green thumb so I thought I'd stick to the easy plants such as anubias, java fern, some kind of moss, that kind of thing. Does anyone know a good place to buy plants like that in a bundle for cheap? Thanks. :)

Ebay.

I either talk to my fish when I'm mad, or I'm mad because I talk to my fish.

Do you live near a petco or petsmart? I know that most of their stores or at least the ones around where I live have separate tanks just for plants. LFS are always an option as well for plants.

If none of these stores are near you, you can try ordering online at:
-ebay or amazon (though I haven't heard much about this)
-liveaquaria . com
-aquaticjungles . com
-aquabids
-checking in the Betta Classified section some people may be selling plants

Only thing is that if you buy any plants online there will be shipping costs so it's best to buy more at one time :)

also check the tropical fish keeping website for their classified too. Im also on a plant forum which has a lot of plant give aways... can link it though XD but if you google "planted tank" you should be able to find it
