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. :)

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.
