Question LFS Selling Carpet Plants?

Does anyone know of any LFS in the central CT area that sells carpet plants?

No, Mike - these are (though often placed _near_ the tubes) in little plastic bags wrapped in a card, such that there's a window in the card through which you can see the plants. They're often hung from one of those bars with all the clips on 'em . . .
