Hi Sage,

It looks as though Tony Avent has offered this species in the past.  The
Plant Delights website allows you to register interest in species that they
no longer offer.  Presumably, if enough people do so, Tony and his
employees will propagate more of the plants for sale.


Will your tank be set up as a paludarium with shallow water?  Judging by
photos, H. pygmaea seems to grow as an emersed wetland plant, but will it
survive permanently submersed?
