bamaplants also has a great selection of anubias :) I've never had a bad experience with them (with the exception of one of my ordered Crypts dying during shipment, but Crypts are pretty sensitive anyway).

JDaquatics as mentioned always has an amazing amount of plants as well xD you can just PM him and ask if he has what you want.

Now the plants are going to have to wait a while, but I'll more than likely pm JDAquatics when I can get more. Hopefully the Java fern I ordered from eBay comes alright and I won't order from them again

Check if you have a local aquarium hobby club. Members often post things on a local forum they want or have too much of, and things are cheap. Also you can look at ROAK planted forums.

I just got my order from singapore and I have to say I have never had a problem. Today I barely opened the box and died form the smell! the plants were completely rotten and a stinky mush. This is my first out of a handful of multiple plant orders I've had trouble with

It's not the plants but the illegality of receiving plants without a Phytosanitary Certificate that is the issue. Very few of those cheap plants come with such and are subject to confiscation and the recipient a fine.

My plant from Malaysia hasn't come yet but I won't be ordering another one because it's illegal.

I haven't found a local aquarium club but I'll keep looking

I've bought anubias from JDAquatics . Spoke with him on here via pm. Got a great price on coffeefolia from him.
Don't buy overseas pants that aren't properly certified-not just because they could be taken.. but because if you get them you may introduce some nasty into your tank(s) and loose a lot more $ in dead fish/plants/contaminated equipment.

I did buy one petite from JD Aquatics during the last SNE and it was very healthy. When I can buy more I probably will stick to ordering from him because it's a safe, healthy bet. I may or may not also begin a collection of buce...I just got two varieties and even though they obviously haven't grown at all or fully acclimated yet I already want more.

In my opinion, the cheapest place to buy anubias is at your LFS or LPS. You won't have to pay for shipping and prices are generally better. Only time I consider shopping online is when I can't find it locally.
