Good Sites For Ordering Plants?

Hello, I am very close to starting my planted tank, and I want to order some of my plants off of the internet. Do any of you know of a good, easy sit to order my plants?

Thanks

I've used www.aquariumplants.com for my last 3 orders and they've come in great shape every time. The broad leaf ludwigia was especially impressive, it had beautiful red pigment on it's leaves.

For some reason I can never get their hornwort to survive very long in my tanks. (Maybe it needs some fertilization?)

They also usually have some type of sale going on if you check their homepage. Right now it is Buy 3 Crypts (of the same type) and get a 4th free.

10 gallon planted - HMDT male betta, 4 peppered corys, assassin snails, Amano shrimp
10 gallon divided bare bottom - HMPK male, 2 VT males
29 gallon sorority planted [journal] - 6 females, 4 bronze corys, trumpet & nerite snails, 3 Amano shrimp

I looked and I am going to check with my dad to see if I can order some! They look like a very good place to order.

Just got my order from him, I would hesitate to recommend him as my plants have more than one grown pond snail. Also, when bidding, one plant is one plant as in one root with whatever number of leaves, ignore the number of stems he said. Having said that, I recommend PlantedAquariumCentral.com, but the best experience is still Topfin tubes from PetSmart, really snail free.

Thanks

Only problem with the tubes is they are known to sell non aquatic plants ad aquatic
