Reccomendations on Plant Purchasing.
Hi All! I was wondering what your reccomendations were on where to order plants through online, where I could also have a catalog sent directly to me if at all possible. And also what plants would you reccomend. I have only fake plants in a 29g tank with 2 cichlids and 2 guarami and a 10 g platie tank. I'm thinking about planting them medium - light heavy to start with just to see how it goes. Also I'm looking to have easily maintainable plants that don't require much care.
for easy, low light plants: java ferns and water sprite. as to where to get them, it is not uncommon for people on this forum to be selling some (i just bought some water sprite from a person here). unfortunately i can't tell you about online stores, i haven't made it to the point of buying from them yet. i know a lot of people on here have, though, and should be able to give you some really good advice.
**I freely admit that most of the information I share I have learned from other people on this forum and am simply repeating. I thank you for sharing your knowledge and ask that if I say anything incorrect someone will kindly correct me**
I purchase mine from www.aquariumplants.com. Good pricing, good quality plants. The bummer? In order for plants to arrive at their healthiest (and to qualify for the replacement if not) you have to order via overnight shipment.
If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
when you order your plants, I would recommend staying away from Sweet Aquatics as they seem to be struggling at the moment. Multiple people on this forum have ordered from them in the past couple weeks and most of the plants received have been very small and on the verge of death.
Advice for anyone new to the hobby: Do your research!! Before you do anything to your aquarium, take some time to research it. It has made a huge difference for me
