    For moss, you might want to visit Biotope (System and Control)
    For the more common plants, you can try Colorful Aquarium at Balestier
    And then there's Teo's plant farm at Lim Chu Kang.

    You can consult the LFS directory (link at the top right corner of this forum) for exact address.

    I am also in the process of looking for aquatic plants for my 1st scape. So they have the usual ones like glosso, HC, Java Fern, etc? Is it cheaper to buy from these farms in bulk than at the LFS? I noticed that the LFS plants are pretty expensive!

    depends on how much plants you get. and what kind of plants you get.

    Those harder to plant ones are usually more expensive. Java fern is already very cheap so guess it does not matter.

    LFS need to make money mah so will be more expensive than farms. But if you buy small amounts $$$ from the farms then no point spending your time there.

    Re: where to buy aquatic plants in Singapore??

    Was at petmart in seragoon and saw some nice plants. asked the staff if they are hardy or easy to die, that guy say ok and the plant i enquired dont need Co2 or sunlight. So I bought it, cost $3. When I reach home, I notice that it's just some fern stalks being stucked into the holes on the small driftwood, then i know why it doesn't need co2 or sunlight cos it will die few days later. Unlike some other plants which have roots anchored onto the driftwood.

    Guess when the ferns die, I will simply go to the park and get some ferns and stuck it into the driftwood.

    I got some kind of aquatic plants which look like some kind of ferns in a pond. is it advisable to put them in my aquarium??

    There's many kind of ferns, a picture would be helpful since you can't tell us the name.

    Bioplast => LFS located at Bendemeer Road, mostly into planted tank famous for top up of CO2 tank.
    Bioptope => LFS located at Ang Mo Kio, well known for wide range of Apisto collection.

    Hello,

    Yah cause Bossteck was saying for moss go to Biotope. I thought Bioplast is the one that's famous fo Fissiden and mosses. So maybe he wrote wrongly.
