Teds greenhouse in tinley park might still have some 1-2 foot Miranda's (I would call them to see if they still have them in stock) but they're tall individual plants. I'm not sure it that's what you want for a hanging basket, or if u want one with a bunch of basals.
I actually checked there, he was out of them.

The last time the pichers were at least 12 inches and for 35 bucks a deal. 6 or so growth point also. Thje only problem is to get the plant soon after they get it . Those wonderful 12 inch traps were all drying due to lack of water . I mentioned it and was told another company handles the plants. Anyway I had to cut back my bay window Miranda a week ago. The vines were 6 feet. Amazing plant. Takes a bit of time to grow after repotting but after that it can be a house plant with no real speacial care like all my other nepenthes. I do have about 8 cuttings rooting. What I normally do is to take alata or miranda (easy to get cuttings to take) and once rooted plant in a hanging basket and within a few months show plant. If your are interested I could offer these cuttings to you in the future. I was going to keep them but what ever if you cannot find a good plant I could offer them to you.On my first post pic One is my miranda( upper pichers).
Either I'm really unlucky, or I just don't look hard enough, sometimes I get whims to go check home depot and lowes for any plants, Lowes usually only has those little death cubes. I have never seen a single CP at Home Depot. My friend who started working at Home depot told me in december he saw a miranda a few months earlier -_-, I'm sad he didn't tell me earlier. Unfortunately everyone at these stores are pretty unhelpful, they all have apparently never seen it before when I show them a picture.
