Best place to order plants?

I recently got a new tank, and I have several tanks currently that are in major need of some new plants! So, my question is are there any specific websites that are best to order from? I really don't want to waste my money! Lol....thanks!:)

plantedaquariumscentral.com is the only place I trust now (especially for anubias). They never have algae, but do have bladder (sometimes called pond) snails-which I don't mind but they're easy to get rid of if unwanted. Their plants are always healthy and they give a bit extra. I've never had diseased anubias from that site, sadly I cannot say the same for ordering from other sites :c
Ask RussellTheShihTzu for the discount code for the site.

Everywhere else I've tried I've been disappointed by lack luster plants (size or portion), algaes, or diseased anubias.

I also love www.bamaplants.com. Their Anubias are gorgeous. Just bought some Coin Leaf, Short and Sharp, Long and Wavy and Wrinkle Leaf. These plants each had at least 12 leaves; the Coin Leaf and Long and Wavy had 2" rhizomes!!!

I know exacty what AquaAurora means about diseased Anubias. It is so disappointing (and expensive). Never had a bad one from either PAC or Bama Plants.

Both ship Priority so it shouldn't be a problem.

I'm an overly cautious person. Parcels lost in the mail go up around Christmas with the chaos of the season, I'd wait but that's just me. I understand the itch to get new plants fast.

I'd think about waiting, then. Maybe by then we'll also have a discount code from Bama Plants. Doing fish-in or fishless cycle?
