FYI just as an example I found HC on The Planted Tank for $5 a portion $10 min + $7 priority shipping. So two 3" patches plus shipping is $17. Most sellers don't even have a minimum. This seller has a bunch of cool mosses also.

TPT or APC are both great sources
I dont know what those are, very new to this forum and tank talk, I'll probably have co2 DIY set up first because on e I get HC I KNOW alot of stores here that want it moneys, TPT- the planted tank APC- ?

Can't you sign the card that they leave so that they'll leave your package the next day?

Umm it goes straight to the po, I'd it donts fit in my box I have to go to them with a slip, it's a pain and there is to many people that would mess with the box .... Haha curious people. My best bet is to take a day off and go shopping for aquarium stuff and order it the day before 😜

I'd recommend supporting hobbyists, then your LFS, then online stores. That is the way I normally go about sourcing plants. Check our classifieds section first, post a wanted ad in there and mention you would prefer local pickup. You could also post on craigslist for your town.

TPT and APC are excellent resources and 9 times out of 10 the quality of the plants will be 10x better than the LFS. I have never paid more than $12 for shipping plants. That included a heatpack and styrofoam in the winter.

Keep in mind, they have cold packs that can be used in the summer to keep the plants from cooking in the bags. I've used both heat and cold packs and never had any issues.

One time I got a plant from a guy that forgot to put the cold pack in for me, it looked like tea when I got it, leaves were mush. He did the right thing and sent me another batch for free though. That's the beauty of dealing with hobbyists, they aren't in it for the money. They are in it for the benefit of others and the hobby in general.

You should be able to post now. New members are not allowed to post until they get some posts under their belt. This keeps spammers from joining and just posting in the classifieds section. It is a minor inconvenience but anyone who posts regularly gets access quickly.
