A lot of people ask where to order plants, so I thought I would start this thread so everyone can post there favorite suppliers
RMC Aquatics, me Mark at the ACA and was blown away by the selection, quality and price of his plants
The one that sticks in my mind was a mat of micro swords, probably 12"x6" for $14

Not really stores, but I've found you can usually get better deals from fellow hobbyists.
http://www.aquabid.com/ <-- can usually find good things here
A large plant related forum where people buy/sell/trade/give away plants. Bought a few plants from people there, cheap prices and larger portion of plants than you'd get in a store.
this site also has a fairly active area for getting plants
good site for getting dry fertilizers (you mix them yourself), also some great advice on this site for proper dosing.

I met Cory and his wife at the ACA, Great people
Want a bunch of plants? Tell Cory about your tank, send him $30-40 and let him choose the plants, you'll get more than you pay forAs I get older I find myself thinking about the hereafter - I go into a room and then wonder what I'm here after.

I have to agree with Korith, the best place to find plants is the Swap n Shop on plantedtank.net If you post a WTB(Want to Buy) post, you will usually have someone respond within a day. You can even post a desired package and you'll find many people with those exact plants.
Many people on the SNS have high light, high CO2 tanks which means lots of growth and lots of stuff to get rid of. Most of my plants came from there and never had a problem.55g: Future home of a green terror and 2 convicts

I went to plantedtank.net and posted that I was looking to buy some plants. I did get some people who responded. I did business with one woman. The plants were not all that great. They were so so. She gave me some extras but I wound up spending $28 and the quality of the plants were not that of someone who grows thriving plants. In addition, her plants were covered with those slimy gelatinous snail beds which I thought I got rid of but one of my tanks wound up with all those nasty snails.
I went to e-bay and spent about $56 and got 6 or 7 times more plants. I basically spent twice the money but I got SOOO much more and no snail issues and the plant quality was high end and the plants were in great shape. The ebay seller has her own site and it's called:

I second Monkey Pox on this one. I've had great success with Aquariumplants.com. Not only do they have excellent quality plants, but their customer service is second to none.
