Lightbulb Thinking of ordering plants online

Things in my tank have been going very slowly, I've had it for a year almost and it's still needs work. Mostly because I can't always get to store when I want and I recently found out that my water is lacking minerals. At this point I think that ordering from a site would be easier and cost less. I just want to see what everybody has to say about ordering online, though most people say they have a great experience. Also what sites do you guys trust and order from? I've looked at extraplant.com, azgardens.com, and aquariumplants.com.

I've had good luck with aquariumplants.com. I've received several orders from them and they all arrived in great condition. Expecting a new shipment tomorrow.

If you haven't already done so you may want to check the Classifieds of this site. I think there are some folks selling plants at decent prices.

I've checked time to time, but for me ordering from a site would best. I want to all things at once, not buy this from her and that from him.

Let us know how the ordering process goes!
I've considered it, but I'm still skeptical.

I was just on aquabid and saw some nice plants with good prices to match. Has anyone ordered plants from there? Any sellers you recommend? I'm unsure about bidding although.

I've always been skeptical about it too, can you read reviews on the site?
Let us know what site you choose, I want to get a very planted tank and ordering online will probably be cheapest.

Ye I just ordered plants from "thatpetplace.com" since I wanted a fish from there anyway I figured why not. Then they had so many plants I liked that I ended up buying about 15 diffrent kinds for my 75 gal. I expect them to be here soon so I will report in after I set them in my tank.
