  • Good list of plants to order

    Hey guys. I'm looking to order some new plants in the near future and I want some new interesting plant ideas. I need to spice up my tanks a little. Haha

    What plant species would you guys recomend?

    Bolbitis heudelotii
    Aponogeton Madagascariensis
    Aponogeton ulvaceus
    Aponogeton longiplumulosus

    These plants have made my radar:

    Bucephalandra Catherineae
    Homalomena Red
    Utricularia Graminifolia
    Piptosphata

      I think all buces are cool. I like cool crypt species like nurii and bullosa.

        I third the buces, my favorite of those are the 'sexy pink' (I don't know who came up with that), and 'silky blue'. Others I can think of are fissidens moss, any erios (had to recommend it), echinodorus 'red devil', and echinodorus 'aflame'.

            If you check out AB there is a guy with the user name of Redcrane (Here is a link to his current autctions http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/auction/ ... r&Redcrane) I have ordered from him and he was willing to customize the package a bit for me as well as add to it. Plants are great as well and came VERY well packed and in a timely manner. He is a really nice guy as Kathy P can attest to.

              Thanks everyone! Ill be researching all these to see which ones I want.

              I've been scoping out AB every night for good deals, but most of them don't have the kind of plants I'm interested in. Ill have to check out that seller.

                email him and use either my name and kathy P and im sure he will work with you, he does require larger orders, so if your looking at a smaller to mid sized order dont let it deter you, there are a few things I want as well so we might be able to team up and get the order up there.

                  That sounds like a good idea because I'm not looking to make really big order. I'll have to email him and see what all he has.

                    check out his AB auctions and see if he has stuff you want and then lets talk.

                        I think his minimum order is $50. I know Red, he's a great guy. Has very healthy plants and packs really well.

                          Healthy is an understatment! I think some of the plants wanted to climb out of the bag!

                          Last time I ordered it was $100
