I always buy mine from local pet stores/planted tank enthusiasts.

I don't like to buy plants without being able to look at them first. My only experience with ordering plants online wasn't a good one, and I don't think it will happen again.

I ordered my plants from two sites

Pet Supplies | Dog & Cat Supplies, Pet Meds | DrsFosterSmith.com Pet Products
AquariumPlants.com Largest online sales / service site for the live aquarium plants & aquarium products community.

both have done well for me and my plants are all thriving

The only LFS around me is Petsmart/Co which does have some stuff, but no variety. I have ordered from sweetaquatics.com and was very please with what I received. IMO, They are the best value. I just bought a new batch from aquariumplants.com which I would consider second to sweet aquatics, but SA didn't have what I needed in stock at this time. I will let you know how the order from aquariumplants.com turns out, I am expecting it by this weekend

I've gotten a few from PetSmart. The majority are from the online classifieds for my city (kijiji, usedeverywhere, etc.). I've found that with a lot of patience and persistent checking, the things I want end up there for a fraction of the price of the ones in stores, because they've reached the point of being a nuisance for the seller.

Some plants are just cheap... Which is good- in general, the cheaper ones are the easiest to grow.

I prefer sweet aquatics.. Lately they're been a little swamped cause lots of people want their plants. :P

I have bought form local LFS, sweetaquatics.com, and aquariumplants.com as well as a couple of buyers on ebay and aquabid and have been pleased with all of my purchases. If you are not in a hurry for them to be shipped out to the I like sweetaquatics, they have great prices and plants but my last two orders they took a week or more to ship them out to me. If you need them fast go with someone else.
