    Does anyone have experience with getting live plants from LLLReptile.com? I figure if they're good, it would be a nice start to putting live things in my Russian Tortoise and Ornate Box Turtle enclosures, that I know should be safe.

    I didn't even know they sold live plants now. I've read mixed reviews about them, but I've never had issues myself. It looks like they sell mostly terrarium plants, so if that's that you are looking for, they might be a good source. Prices seem reasonable. For my outdoor enclosures, I usually use Homedepot (in person), or ebay.

    I think you're taking a chance on their plants as the ones I've seen in-store are a very mixed bag. Some looked great and healthy and then others looked like they should be in the 75% off bin!

    I've ordered from them and I did not have any issues.

    I thought home depot plants aren't safe because of the fertilisers.

    If you re-pot the plant with fresh/organic soil, and wait a year it will be deemed safe.
