Try your LFS, mine has a wonderful selection. Also try Craigslist in your area. If you can purchase online try aquabid or ebay.
My 2 set ups have java fern, java moss, duckweed, anacharis, and my pride and joy plant wise is a piece of bogwood that I attached crystalwort (riccia) and anubias nana to.
