SAB sells plants, but not seeds. i's a popular plant so there should be others around who can trade cuttings too.

I bought P Subpelatum and P Auritum from SAB. Nice little plants, well packed and priced. I'm going to strike a few cuttings, so if you are prepared to wait a few weeks I can help.

There's a massive grove of it growing wild not far from where I live.

I'm having trouble with bugs on my Piper. I only had Derris dust on hand, so hopefully that will dispatch them until I can find a more permanent solution. Anyone got any advice for insects?

I think you can also save that seedling. Put it back into a fully-humid environment, and mist 1-2 times daily. Maybe prop up the leaves so they can generate maximum energy for the plant before they perish. If you're lucky, the plant will have enough energy reserve to send up more foliage. It's hard to tell, but was that seedling getting enough sunlight? It looks etiolated in that photo.
