I remember, for a period of a few years, my mom would constantly buy 'lucky bean' plants from Home Depot. None would ever survive for more than a few months as they usually rotted, but that's probably because there were pebbles glued on and everything, plus the pot was quite small. I haven't seen them for sale anywhere for quite a while now, but as Mother's Day is approaching and I know that this is one way to get another plant (hint hint wink wink), I want to try to find one. I live in Calgary, so if anybody in Calgary knows a good place to get a real lucky bean that's been well-cared for, please do tell!

They are available online. Check with local nurseries and ask if their wholesaler suppliers can get one for you.

I don't usually buy things online since I'm not sure of how good the source is, especially for plants.

Your concern is legitimate especially because plants are perishable and easily damaged by temperature extremes and rough handling. Look for online suppliers that are exclusively in the garden/plant business and ask what their guarantee or return policies are.

Wish there were just packages of the seeds near the house plants. It would be so fun to try to sprout lucky beans & a lot of other "house plants" that could be grown from seed.
