Silk plants

Where do y'all get your silk plants from? I look in my 2 local Petsmarts and they never have small ones, only medium and large which are too big for my tank. So I started looking online at Petsmart and they all look the same to me. Green & red swords, which I already have in my tanks. Any suggestions?

Thanks, happy Wednesday :)

What size is your tank? I bought one of those medium/large silk plants from Petco even though I thought it looked too tall for my tank. But once I put it in the tank with water, it spread out and fits perfectly in the tank! It's one of my favorite plants because it covers so much area and my fish loves it

It's only about 8 1/4" tall, it's just a little 1 gallon tank but there isn't enough room for a "cave" so I'm trying to fill it with good plants so he can hide in those.

Like I said, the larger plants will "fan" out to fit the tank. Or if they're all too big maybe you could trim them?

Doctors Foster and Smith have some nice silk/fabric plants.

I love Petco's silk plants. So many colors, sizes, and shapes!
