    Default Buying plants online

    Does anyone have any thoughts on buying plants online? I found this website... aquariumplants.com and it seems pretty good. I like how they separate the plants by region, as I would like to do an all South American biotope.

    I use their 'Trace' & 'Total' root tabs and like them, Never bought plants there though. I know others here have shopped there with good results.

    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    I've bought on-line, sometimes through Aquabid, sometimes through members of another forum (The Planted Tank) and had good results. Have also used this place - http://shop.plantedaquariumscentral.com/ with good results. Be careful with having plants shipped in cold weather. Packaging is important or the plants could get severely damaged.

    +1 to LH, not all companies will ship with warming packets, many will for an additional fee. Safest thing to do is to contact them beforehand to confirm.

    +1 to SueD: I also ordered from http://shop.plantedaquariumscentral.com and had a very good result. The plants were huge, in superb condition, and for a few of them, I got more than what I ordered.

    I've also generally had good luck on AquaBid.

    In the past, I used aquariumplants.com several times. In general they were good, but for reasons I'd rather not go into here, I had a falling out with them. Suffice it to say look up aquariumplants.com on the Better Business Bureau website.

    I've bought plants and fertilizers from aquariumplants.com many times over several years and have always been very happy with their service and quality. I always received very healthy plants, my order has always been correct, and shipped quickly. When looking at the better business bureau remember they are fueled by a few unsatisfied customers out of possibly thousands throughout the country, most of which were very satisfied with their service and quality. I would take the BBB with a grain of salt.
    When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
    Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

    While your at it also look up a bit of info about the BBB so that you can fully understand that they are not a government agency and hold no authority whatsoever.

    The BBB is a private 501(c)(6) organization subscription service whos operating budget is solely derived from the membership dues of the very businesses it reports on. By their own admission, Membership in the Better Business Bureau improves a business’ grade.

    Make of that what you will.

    By the way, The Better Business Bureau is not in fact a member of the Better Business Bureau.

    +1 mommy So would I.

    I would add that I will also take the first opinion quoted above with that same salt considering that this was their very first post here. It definitely says something... Know what I mean?
