    In PR is quite another matter.

    You'd need to ask for the ones in the USA.

    well not in PR, in PR only exist one nursery and it is only for pond plants. im looking in US or other country. I check with Tropica but they dont sells to PR.:(

    I check in one nursery in florida but only sells to distributors and I want to buy directly. Here the distributors are selling a lot of non aquatic plants and very easy plants. Im looking for other plants that are relatively rare in PR but common in Internet. Also looking in quality.

    Panda you are in AMEPR forum??

    Yes, you two need to get together to help the local PR aquatic plantas folks there.
    Also, group buys will help defray the cost for many things.
    There are few on line resellers, you might try them.
    Few nurseries will sell direct unless you plan on buying a lot.
    As many are tropical, and PR is tropical, it might be a good place to raise and culture plants commercially.

    I would if I lived there.

    Cheap land/labor/cost etc

    I have small plants shop here, I sells plants cheap compared to other petshops in PR but I always need looking for specials and buy from diferent friends in the US that sells the plants cheap to me. The problem is that somethimes I got short of new plants in PR, that why I want to make a large buy . Maybe $300 on plants.

    Panda voy a hacer una reunion que creo que va a ser para el 30 de agosto vamos a ver si vienes:D

    Is great to make a nursery here, specially here the temp are hot all the year. Where I live never the temp drop more that 69 F and that is only few days in the winter. I dont have a big space in my home to make a nursery. I only grow and produce echinodorus mersed and then put the plantlets in water but is in proccess I only have a few mother plants.

    A person with money can make a nursery likle you say Tom. I dont have money Im only 20 years old and I study in the University.
