Silk Plants, best place to buy?

Hey guys! Where in your opinions are the best places to purchase silk plants online?

Edited to add, I want something that looks great without paying the high prices in our LFS and I"m not very fond of the plants sold at petsmart/petco...too plasticy looking..if that makes sense.

Thanks for the suggestion, however I've already decided against them. I WANT to, but my green thumb abilities say no to that! LOL

I got mine from Big Al's online. They look nearly as good as the real thing, and prices are pretty reasonable.

Check your local craft store, like a Michael's or whatever.

Thanks, you all had pretty good ideas and Big Al's does seem to have good prices.
