Good source for purchasing plants (esp. Water Sprite)

On Byron's recommendation, I'd like to add some Water Sprite to my aquarium. Unfortunately, I'm literally 0-for-12 at my LFS's. Can anyone recommend a good place to buy? C. Cornuta would be preferred. Thanks!

I'd bet you can find some members here with watersprite to sell. Bad time of year for shipping it though. What state are you located in?

I'd normally have some, but I donated a bunch for doorprizes at our state aquarium club meeting in December and I literally have one piece left.

18 species/varieties of fish, 15 species/varieties of plants - The fish are finally ahead of the plants!
*560 gallons (2120 liters) in 5 tanks -> you do the math.

Yes, I never see it locally either. If you are in Canada, I will send you some when it warms up, I chuck out bits every week. I don't send plants into the US any longer, the last efforts never made it alive; US customs are very particular over any live plants entering the US.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Thanks everyone. Seems I chose a poor time of year for this request! I'll look for members who'd be willing to try shipping some to Illinois. Thanks again!

If you still need some in another month or so, please feel free to pm me. I can't vouch for the exact watersprite species you'd end up with however!
