I'm looking for either a Pennywort or Anacharis. Please let me know of plants with similar care needs. I hate having such a small list.
Anyhow, I'd love to get Spike's new live plant from either Petco, PetsMart, PetSuperMarket, or Fishy Business (LFS). But if I cannot find the plants I am looking for, I may have to resort to ordering online? Where do you order your plants? How do you go about QTing the plant? And how long do you QT the plant?

Reason: changing title
I got mine from plantedaquariumscentral.com. Coupon code BETTAFISH worked at the time... =)
ETA: Check out also water sprite, duckweed, frogbit, water wisteria, anubias - all water column feeders, supposed to do well in low-moderate light
I second this! plantedaquariumscentral.com is AWESOME. The plants will most likely come with snails, just as a warning. No diseases EVER, though. I never quarantine plants from there, lol. At your own risk, of course ;) Flat rate shipping, as well.
Stuff I've had experience with that you might like: wisteria (grows like mad and looks nice), java fern, vals (need root system - gravel is fine), amazon sword (need root system - gravel is fine), anubias (awesome stuff), hornwort (can be ULTRA ANNOYING, even if it's doing well and not shedding), java moss, anacharis, hygrophila (needs root system), crypts (do better with root system - can plant in gravel).
You may also want to look at lacefern, cabomba and hornwort. :) Java fern, java moss and anubias are also staples, of course.
I'm starting to look at Java Ferns as well. I'd love to replace the silk plant in the center of my aquarium (that is directly under the light). But if necessary I'll put the live plant in the back left corner.
What do you mean by "staples"
And I've heard hornwort can be annoying when shedding.
Also, I'm VERY thorough with my gravel vacuuming. Would any of the plants I am considering have issues with the possibility of their roots being up rooted.
