I have had very good luck buying plants off of AQUABID. The vendors have shipped good lucking plants and usually a LOT MORE than I purchased. I am sure that sooner or later I will feel like I was taken, but I have been exceptionally happy with both service and quality so far.

55 Gallon, planted

Cherry Barbs 5
CPD's 6
Porkchop Rasboras 7
German Blue Rams 4
Boesemani Rainbow 2
Siamese Algae Eaters 4
Cories:
3 Lined: 1
Elegans: 3
Pandas: 4

I think I am pushing it, but water quality is holding up fine, and all the fishys seem pretty happy.

I purchased a 30-gallon "plant pack" from That Fish Place - That Pet Place and was really pleased. Not that inexpensive if you purchase the individual plants, but the plant packs work out pretty well. My plants averaged out (including shipping) to $2.50/plant and the bunched plants were generous bunches. The plants arrived at my door in excellent shape, many with runners or plantlets. None were lost in the transplant/planting since their arrival a month ago (although I picked up three species of snails!).

+1 on aquabid and sweetaquatics.com, but have you tried posting in our classifieds section with a subject something like "Wanted: Beginner Plants". I'm sure someone can help, and it's usually WAY cheaper.

Several of those shipments were from Mike, by the way. Top Notch!
