that plant would be in the short list of EXTREMELY hard plants to acquire in the US. Only a handful of hobbyests have it. There are no US distributors that I am aware of. Tropica who grows it, does not export plants to the US.

You may have better luck smuggling it in from Canada (not that I'd ever encourage anybody to do this ). Seems like a number of hobbyists there have it. But from some of the things I've heard, there's no way in heck that you'll be able to plant some in March and grow enough to distribute by April. You'll be lucky if you can merely get it to recover from the trauma of being transplanted in a month's time.

But good luck finding it. I don't personally know of anybody in the U.S. who has this plant. And I know quite a few avid collectors. Or maybe they're just not telling me .

If you do get lucky in March, can you make my life a little luckier too? Help a fellow out, send me the plant when you have extra .

If you do manage to get some, be carefull in the way it is shipped to you. If it's not done well, and quickly, you will lose it. It's very hard to plant, and even harder to establish. IME it's a TOTAL PITA to work with and your better off buying some H. micranthemoides and working it into a carpet.
