    Does anyone have any recommendations for a reputable online plant seller? I've seen a lot of threads about online buying and the quality of the plants, but I'm also curious what anyone's experience has been with hitchhikers (I want as few as possible)?
    Thanks for any responses,
    Ang

    Dustin's Fishtanks has pretty good plants, but I haven't ordered from there.
    You can rid of hitchhikers with a small bleach bath.

    I've ordered several plants from Aquatic Arts and never had a problem.

    I've used aquaticarts.com and aquaticplantfarms.com and both had good plants.

    aquaticarts.com is great, but if you want something cheaper Aquatic Discounts on amazon has some good stuff. They still have good quality, but Aquatic Discounts sells bulk plant packs that are cheaper

    Bobs Tropical Plants, although it's been a while since my last order.

    If you want zero hitch hikers then I suggest ordering tissue cultures instead, they are small but will grow eventually. Also you get a great value for the amount of plants that come in one cup

    +1 on trinsfish.com . Let me know if you use them as I can save you a bit with a coupon

    I've also ordered plants from aquaticarts.com and have been pleased.
