Where to get hard to kill plants?

Where do you get this java moss or the other plants that are hard to kill?

Try a local fish store, usually petsmart does not carry them!?! I don't know why, corporate petstores aren't the brightest, they like plants in a box with gell which all that I have tried have died or done bad. You could ask some members on the forum in the barter area, or order some that would be overpriced from an online dealer.

i have bought mine from both,online and LFS,
i have found Hornwort,and villas to be the most hardy
in my tank,also one other however i don't know it's name
and it is thriving.
treat your plants to some plant tabs,and i'm sure you
will notice a difference.
if i can keep them alive, then it's not impossible.
don't loose heart. :)

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

if you're looking for java moss your best bet would be to find a friend thats got some growing and have him or her split some off for you. i work at a LFS and our supplier says that he can't get any in due to increased demand after Takashi Amano used it to win a number of aquascaping contests.
