Dear Eric

They are available from a few specialist nurseries in the US or Try Frasier Thimble Farms(Canada) where there is a minimum order of &75 because they are CITES listed plants (orchids) A few of the Oregon specialist nurseries, Brent and Becky's Bulbs, and Broken Arrow Nursery have offered them in the past as well. They are out there but I don't know who has them currently. There are several European Nurseries that will export to the US but the costs of importing can be rather high. Getting them is one thing - keeping them going in the garden is another.

Growing from seed is a challenging process with plants taking a couple of years to reach flowering size. There is plenty of information on the web about European Terrestrials from seed. It is something that will take some considerable effort to do. I suggest that you search the Terrestrial Orchid Forum (http://www.terrorchid.org/) - a great place to find information on the subject.
Best of luck to you
