Realized how much I miss having a planted tank and I want to make my 5g hex planted. Aside from aquabid, can anyone suggest some places to order plants? I have anacharis already. Looking for crypts, maybe anubias, hornwort, rotala, stargrass, wisteria, ludwigia, water sprite, amazon sword, things like that. I've had luck growing all of those in the past along with java fern and java moss. Tank's current inhabitant is a female betta, might get her a few ghost shrimp one of these days.

I've had very good luck buying from Mikeswetpets on ebay - plants always come in great condition and he's a very nice person to deal with. Maybe not the biggest selection, but probably has something to make your aquarium look good.

I've had good luck buying from liveaquaria.com. They may not have a very exotic selection, but the plants have always arrived in good condition!

Aquariumplants.com is another one I've had good luck with. Wide selection, great service and plants arrive in good shape.

I often buy plants off eBay from private growers, but be sure to double check the ratings etc. to ensure you are obtaining quality plants!
