We have actually visited the facilities at Garden Goods Direct. They seem to really care about sending quality plants. They are more of a traditional landscape nursery that sells trees and shrubs but they also have an impressive selection of popular houseplants.
Garden Goods Direct sells houseplants that are a bit more mature then what you could buy from Costa Farms. They are also a bit more expensive.
When we last checked, they had over 136 different houseplants for sale.

Where Hirt’s is more on the low end of prices with smaller plants, Bloomscape offers some of the most developed, larger houseplants you will find online. Prices are higher because of this. We saw a range between $35 up to $195. If you don’t want to wait for a houseplant to grow, especially indoor trees, Bloomscape is the place to go.
Worst Places to Buy Houseplants Online
Keep in mind this is subjective and just our opinion. It is an opinion, however, that has been formed from working with online nurseries for over 12 years.
Nature Hills Nursery - Their prices are high and they are a drop shipper. in other words, they send orders to real nurseries to ship. They are a middleman with an extra fee added in for them.
Teleflora - Sure, if you need a last-minute gift, they might be a place to consider. Their selection is not as good as online nurseries and you will pay for the 'last minute' decision.
Etsy - Etsy is kind of like eBay when it first started. Inconsistent quality and pricing that is all over the place.
