    I doubt this will help you as such, but I get most of mine from fellow aquarists with the "wanna swap some of that plant for some of this" method =P I also have one favourite petshop for all my fishy needs, including plants.

    I would probably go online when I get mine so you know you are actually getting plants that grow in aquariums. Also know more about them. Lots of places have plants and fish both and that would be a way to kill 2 birds with one stone.

    Most of my plants have been acquired through online trades or purchases. Recently I've been bugging a couple of the lfs in my area to do more plant business. One of them started ordering plants from and a couple other places. That store also just built a custom 120g tank just to display their plants. That makes two tanks dedicated to plants and about 4 more that include the taller plants that don't work so well in the display tanks.

    Avoid, for the most part, Petco/Petsmart/Walmart etc.

    Check out as well as the planted forums ( and are examples). They have RAOK's (random act of kindness) where you pay just shipping for a ton of plants. You also see a lot of rare plants traded or sold for next to nothing.
