Good place to order plants?

Does anyone know of a decent, reasonably priced place to buy live plants? I was going to order from baylees, but it's been months now and no plants because he's having major health problems. I checked liveaquaria.com and they don't have many of the plants I want, and they won't even ship some of them to my state! So, any help would be appreciated as I'm really sick of looking at a big empty tank. Not to mention that with all these guppy fry in my little 10 gal QT I really do need to move them to the bigger tank ASAP once I'm done treating them because nitrates are building up fast in there. Thanks.

Good question, Kim. I've also ordered from both Bayless & liveaquaria and was very pleased with the quality & pricing. Liveaquaria won't ship alot of the plants they offer to my state either.
I've used Aquatic Magic but they are in Malaysia and not cheap. They do have some hard to locate items which is why I used them and they will ship anything anywhere and I found their quality superb.
The other route you can use is aquabid. I have used aquabid twice. Of the two purchases I made there I was very happy with the first purchase but not the second one. The second purchase arrived in very poor shape and ended up dying a few days later. Buyer beware as far as aquabid is concerned.

I have been happy with Aquabotanic.
I also recently ordered some plants off of Ebay seller (mikesweptpets).
His plant where amazingly healthy. I ordered some more off him today. He said he is leaving town for a month, that if I made payment today, he would ship out on moday before he left.

Thanks! I looked up aquabotanic and it seems to have a great selection and the prices are lower than liveaquaria. There are some things I couldn't find though. Like, how much is shipping usually? Oh, and how many stems are included if you buy a bunch plant? If anyone who has ordered from there could give me some imput here that would be great ;) Hopefully my tank can be fully set up soon!

I have purchased numerous times from Sweet Aquatics with great success and very healthy stock. You cna find them on the internet and on Aquabid.

I think I paid $20 something for shipping, but it was a pretty large order.
They did not charge the shipping till it was sent out, they say they charge actual shipping cost and dont try to make a profit on shipping. Mine was sent the 2-3 day priority mail.
I did not order any bunch plant, so not sure how many stems.

Aquaticplantsdepot.com isn't too well known but i found them years ago. I looked at the site last week , it was so cheap i called to verify that they were still up & running.The plants are common ones but good and tgeres a flat rate for shipping, to Fl it's $12.Theres Aquariumplants.com and azgardens.com( my amazons needed ferts)but the others were great and inexpensive.
