Default WTF LFS with properly listed plants

Hi, I want to find some LFS that has properly named plants.

I am actually looking for low requirement plants but many times I bought plants back and ID them online and found them to be other or high requirement plants.

My tank is only 1ft x 10"x10" with 1x Dynmax 28 LED lamp and soil base (Black Ocean Free soil).

Plants I looking for are :
Water Wisteria
Hornwort - Ceratophyllum submersum
small nana
loose java moss on rocks

kindly advise other suitable small plants as well

C328 has some. To play safe, buy Tropica 1-2 grow. Those are surely right. Another place is GreenChapter, the boss is very nice and knowledgeable and their plants are all labelled and help is just a ask away =)

The plants you listed like hornwort and Wisteria are the $1 per pot kind, I think most LFS won't bother to label them. Search for images and compare at the LFS.

As for C328, maybe i dun really like that place as too crowded....and also for $1 plants, i do agree that nobody really bothers.

Mizu world also will give wrong plants from my buying experience from them.

IMO TS just learn about the plants you are interested in then go look for them in the shops do not depend on shops to label them correctly for you so far all the famous shops do label their plants wrongly at least 1 time or the other.

I agree to play save buy from 1-2 grow at least these are properly labeled so far that is also why the price difference. However those plants TS wanted are cheaper plants so better to learn the characteristic & look of his plants then hunt for them.

1. Green Chapter in macpherson & clementi.

2. Seaview.

But best is you google image search your plant list and you can go to any lfs without proper labelling.
