Did you check with your local nuseries as these are often sold as
for sunporches and as house plants.  Klehm's nursery and Amlings used to

Be careful if you buy from garden centres or nurseries, quite often the
plants have been sprayed or treated with insecticide, possibly at the
original supplier. Sales staff may not know that systemic insecticides have
been applied before the stock came in.  Check out the plant with a few
larvae first before putting the whole brood onto them.
