You might try contacting World Wide Pet Supply. About a year ago I was there and they had 20 or 30 seedlings in styrofoam cups, they weren't there for more than a week ! haven't seen any lately though, they may be able to help anyway.

Thanks Tom!
Haven't had much time for updates lately! 
I used the Flourish products for a while ( all I could get locally) but I've been using TMG for about a year now and it's been very good. I'm going to pick up some K2SO4 after my Formula K runs out and my backordered Flourish Potassium gets used up. I just got an email from someone that says their Flourish Potassium just arrived from PWH. Does anyone know if the Flourish product is just a potassium supplement? I don't need anything else as I'm using TMG already and just need a little extra K boost.
