    Looking for sources of plants

    I'm about to set up my first planted tank and have done a far amount of research to prepare. I live in Irvine and have visited several aquarium stores in the area looking for a good source of plants, with limited success. I've also looked on-line, but I'm not sure which are the best.

    Would really appreciate some guidance on the best sources of plants. I'm willing to drive anywhere in Orange County and Los Angeles. I'm also willing to try mail order, if someone has some recommendations that are reliable.

    Thanks

    what types of plants? the tradewinds section here, as well as the monthly meets are no doubt the best, and cheapest source for plants.

    For common plants, Tong's in Fountain Valley is your best bet. They're a little on the expensive side, but have several tanks at the back of the store loaded with mostly healthy plants. Other stores to investigate if you're willing to make the drive:
    CK Fish World in Covina
    A+ in Temple City
    Nature Aquarium in Santa Monica
    Selection will vary highly depending on when they got their last plant shipment in. Best bet is to call them and find out when they expect their next shipment.

    For the rarer stuff and best prices, your best bet is SCAPE meetings. Followed by the for sale section of this site, TPT, or APC.
