    I'm afraid I don't know, but I recall seeing these in the fernery at Montreal Botanical Garden -- perhaps talk to the horticulturist in charge of that area? It's an intriguing plant.

    Thanks. I'll contact her nut website says this in FAQ

    Do you export plants outside the United States?

    **** At this time, we are sorry, we can not. The time involved with getting an inspector to the nursery and the high costs involved (usually $60-100 dollars USD for the inspections), make it hardly worth it for the customer.

    I saw it in Montreal botanical too. Maybe if 10 people in Montreal wanted it?

    There is a grower in Thailand selling it on eBay now. They say they can ship worldwide but I'd be cautious about buying this plant in winter. It will not survive temperatures below 55 degrees F (13 C).
