Actually, shipping from Canada to USA (and visa versa) isn't that much more expensive. It's like $2-5 extra. Sometimes it's cheaper! For example... I sent a small box to a province over in Canada, cost me $17. I sent a medium sized box to Tenn, USA and it cost me the same price. Not only was it the same price but the box was twice as larger to USA lol But, getting live plants across the boarder is not easy. I have extra java moss too! Darn it!

I have Java Moss, but I'm still letting it grow. It hasn't gotten to the stage of having to prune it. I'll put in a classified when I have some to send.

I guess it's probably just that shipping from the US to Canada is pricey and that shipping within Canada itself is a bit pricier than it is in the US. It's insanely expensive for me to ship things to my friend up in Winnipeg. At the same time, I can ship a small flat rate priority box (guaranteed quick delivery, 3 days at most to pretty much anywhere in the US) for $5.35.

What's with all the spare moss in Canada, huh? lol

I'll keep on waiting then. It seems like I'll have loads of offers in a couple months, haha.

I've actually bought many many things from USA and never payed much more than what it cost to ship within USA. Odd. I bought tons and tons of baby related stuff and fabric for animal bedding :)

Interesting. It's possible they're losing some money on shipping and/or shipping it via a method that if it doesn't get there your screwed because there'd be no way to track it down. Even the cheapest, least secure method of shipping to Canada has always been a couple bucks more than the same sized box to somewhere in the US in my experience, even things as small as padded envelopes.

Please let us know next time you have extras, I would like some new plants, and cant seem to find good healthy stock in my area either. You could have your own side business going haha

You'd definitely have several eager takers of your "plant rubbish" Inga, lol!

If you join plantedtank.net they have a Swap and Shop section where people sell plants. Im sure you'll be able to find some java moss quite easily there since its such a common moss.

Also, keep in mind that riccia and fissdens need more light than a lot of other mosses, so make sure you can provide that before spending all sorts of money. Would have for them to die. :3

Good luck!

Thank you for the suggestion & the reminder about light needs. I'm not in any major hurry to get any of these plants, so I'll just wait and see what turns up here most likely. I will keep the plantedtank.net forums as an idea though. I already lurk there quite a bit, just for the good information!

Huh, with the photo period I'm using it looks like the Najas (guppy grass) I have in one of my tanks is taking off! It's kind of neat looking.
