Colocasia - size matters

By now many of you have received the Park/Wayside catalogues.  On the back of
their Countryside catalogue is a picture of Colocasia 'Black Magic'.  I just
know that one of our Display Gardens is going to ask me to order it for them.

However, last year I ordered 3 varieties at $15 each from Glasshouse Works. 
They all arrived in 1.5 inch pots with bulbs the size of a pea.  The leaf was
lucky to make 2 inches, much less 2 feet.  Park shows theirs to be in a 3 inch
pot and they tell me they are 2 yr old plants and will take a few years to
reach the size advertised.

My question is, in order to obtain a "performance" size bulb of C. 'Black
Magic', where would I go and how much should I expect to pay?  What size or
age should I require? These are Display Gardens and need to produce some 
impact now.
