    What kind of lighting do you have? The apon crispus is a relatively delicate plant IME (although others say it's easy), and didn't do well for me with a twin tube normal output flourescent fixture. I would recommend PC or HO T5 lighting for this plant.

    Banana plants can be found at LFSs for about $4-6 I think, same for java ferns. Not sure about the dwarf onion, I've never kept it.

    The LFSs by you are charging $4-6 per banana plant?

    I haven't priced them in a couple years. That was the going rate in Louisville but everything is cheaper where I am now. Prices on plants and livestock vary greatly from location to location.

    I have a flourescent light. Thank you for the replies!!

    Drock I live in PA, so our prices might be relatively close??

    Apon crispus is a beautiful plant, but may not tolerate low light. Then again, with root tabs it may be worth a shot. :)

    Maybe, 1.99 is a store I go to in queens and petland discounts. 2.99 is my LFS.

    Also check out aquabid for plant packages. Some good plant retailers also put up bids that are much more for much less.
