a friend of mine ordered from aquariumplants.com a couple of years ago, and he said he got nothing for 2 weeks, his e-mails werent answered, there was no confirmation of his order and then suddenly bam, one day he just had a giant box of plants on his doorsteps. I dont know if theyve gotten better since then, but the quality of the plants were great, it was just terrible customer service.

Along with some of the hardier crypts... (wendtii comes to mind).

I personally like sweetaquatics. They get really busy at times, but when you get 50-80% off of chain store prices, it's worth it IMO.
Thank you for the website, I checked it out, very nice selection! I know many people may not like Java Moss, but I kind of like it on my driftwood, it will make the wood look kind of ancient.

I have a 10 gal and have recently (1 month) put in a crypt wendtii, red. It seems to have settled in and leaves are growing bigger. I have read that low light will encourage them to grow taller; brighter light encourages them to spread out rather than up. Mine has fairly bright light and looks nice along the gravel. I've read that they do better the less they are moved and when they are better established.

Wow, then they certainly stepped up since then. When I order I get an email confirmation that day, then the day they are out the door I get an email tracking #, and once the plants arrive they are terrific looking.
