Could you please help me find where I can purchase the white lava elephant ear colocasia plant that is new to the market this year. Plant delights is sold out and Brent and Beckys Bulbs have them but, will bot repot them in peat so I can cross the border in Canada with customs. Dirt is not allowed, but I got permission to have peat not dirt for shipping for the plants to be allowed. Thanks so much.

|Savanna, it appears there is an ATP member who has that particular plant for trade or sale. Check here:

|Last summer and into fall we had the White Lava being sold at Lowe's here, and in other parts of the country as well. I know one fellow on the Aroids forum that (I'm pretty sure) got his at Lowe's in Massachusetts. That's getting close to the Canadian border.
Any chance you can call the closest Lowe's store to you, and if they have them, then drive down with your sterile peat, repot the plant and take it home yourself? That would be the most inexpensive and uncomplicated way to go, I would think.
Barring that, obtaining a pup in the fall and having it shipped bare-root might also work.
