I know this is a late post, but if you do get plants from petsmart tubes again, they only sell a few true aquatic plants. Anacharis, Java Fern, & Hygrophila difformis. I have purchased the later two and both are thriving in my 10 gallon (with appropriate nutrients added). Petsmart does not label these tube plants as aquatic, but rather "Live Plants" as options for turtles, frogs, lizards, etc. BUT any employee will sell you because either they don't know better or they hope you don't know better. Some stores have tanks with variable species, but you will really have to do your homework to get a good plant. I have also bought a few of these. I'm deprived of any decent local fish stores - of course the only good one within 20 miles was shut down >.<
IMHO, go to Sweet Aquatics! The next tank I plant will be a fat shipment from SA. They are competitively priced, knowledgeable (active on this forum too), and from what I hear do fantastic business.
