Need more plants
Now that I have a better idea on what I think I want to go with and need, I need more plants! Sweet Aquatics is out of most of what I need, I quess until the 29th and I don't want to have to wait that long. I have looked around but most places have horrible shipping charges. I found a place in Oregon but when I searched for reviews I only found one review and it was bad. Another problem I have is I will find a place that I trust but then they do not have all of the types I am looking for. Any suggestions? Thanks!

P.S. Now that I look at Sweet Aquatics again, the "29th" was for January. Does anyone know when they are going to restock? I know Eric is waiting for a reponse from them on something. I can try to email them, but I was hoping I could order today.

Which plants are you wanting? We out of stocked many plants due to a high number of open orders. We may have what you are wanting. We should be getting our next shipment on the 19th.

Dan, if I need a Friday delivery, what day should I place my order to receive plants on Friday?

Whenever you want just make a note about it and we will ship accordingly. Usually a Wednesday ship will arrive Fri.

Thanks! I think I'll be calling in my order to get some suggestions as well :-)

Hi! Thank you so much for responding. I want the Anubia Congensis which I know you still have in. I just bought one from you and I love it! I also need more of the Ludwigia Natans (Ludwigia Repens) pot, and possibly the Rotala Indica (Rotala Rotundifolia), and maybe some more Pennywort (you may still have this one in the pot, which is big?)

Do you carry Moneywort...not sure what the scientific name is? There may be some others that I will order as well.

Also, on the Congensis, I know that they are supposed to grow faster if they are allowed to be partically out of the water, but do well all the way in the water as well. I assume that the one I got may have been somewhat outside the water. It has the white splash water stains on the tallest leaves. How do I get that off? I do understand why this is, but is there a way I can get it off? I tried to rub it gently but it does not come off easy. The younger shorter leaves do not have it on them. It really is a beautiful and healthly looking plant. You grow them well!

Thanks, and I look forward to you response. :-) I am glad that you are on here!

P.S. I can order by this evening or tomorrow morning. It got here real fast the last time. I think you mailed it on Wednesday because I did not order until Tuesday, and I got it on Friday. Thank you for your great customer service!

I am out of the Ludwigia Natans. We are out of this plant because our supplier had severe cold weather and many plants were damaged. Typically I have 50+ bunches available (it is our best seller).
I have Rotala Indica and some pennywort.
Moneywort is Bacopa Monnieri we only have this in pots.
The anubias congensisi comes to us emersed. The white stains is hard water .
I used a blue stratch pad the kind that is safe on glass. the spots came right off. But be careful I gently rubbed the leaf, you don't want to damage the leaf. I think a toothbrush would even work.

I will be updating the webstie tonight with the plants we have left.

Holly I think you'd like the Rotala...check out the "new 45g" in my aquarium log the whole back wall of the tank is covered in it.
