I placed an order for a plant from Van Bourgondien a few weeks ago. I ordered a bunch of things that could've been purchased everywhere to jack the bill up to the minimum level specifically so that I could get one plant: Tradescantia blushing bride (http://www.dutchbulbs.com/spring/z31938.74708.html)

Everything except that was shipped - they were sold out of the one plant I had wanted in the first place. I was hoping someone on Aroid-L would either know of another supplier or would have some growing and could spare a shoot.

Les,

Try the following:

The Flower Factory: Nancy Nedveck, 4062 Highway A, Stoughton, WI
53589. (608) 873-8329.

However, I don't know if she does mail order.

I contacted them this morning. Alas they don't do mail order and no longer have the plant. They're very nice and definitely know their plants well. Unfortunately, although they have many other two-toned Tradescantia, they're also nearly half way across the country.

I was afraid to ask them what aroids they could have sold me if I had visited them. Thanks for the thought, though.

If you mean Tradescantia Maiden's Blush, I saw that listed at
