I got Nitella for a cytoplasmic streaming lab from Carolina.  They were not
puny--certainly large enough for my purposes.  However, I did notice that
the number of plants was not enough so I plan to order double (or a hundred
student culture) next time.

Seasonality could have to do with it.  Mine were ordered in October.  I
think they grow them in outdoor ponds, so this might just be a bad year.
