I've had pretty good luck ordering Christmas moss off Ebay. Buceplant.com is excellent, in my experience. I've had good luck with aquariumplants.com too. (very original company name, too!)

No particular youtube stores; they seem to sort of come and go (and I don't order plants that often). Just make sure you get one that has a long track record and good reviews. And prepare for "pest" snails. :) I recommend a long qt period (a couple weeks should do it) for any plants that aren't tissue cultured, especially from ebay, just in case they contain fish pathogens. But I always kind of enjoy the mystery inverts that invariably come with them.

I’ve gotten almost all my plants from Marcus Fish Tanks and actually just ordered some more Christmas moss today. Very reasonable prices with generous quantities and great customer service.

I use aquarium plants.com , no complaints at all. They have a great selection and give a nice portion. I tried Vesicularia dubyana Java Moss a couple years ago. It's really taking off nice now. I heard it was slow growing and that sure turned out to be true.

I got some flame moss from Petco. They also had Christmas and Java.

Rather brown looking in the package put it recovered quickly.
ill go look at identifying mosses and then go to petsmart or petco
