Can anyone suggest a device that may be used to supply electrical current to a plant?

Hello Pharaoh 1914 and welcome to Science Buddies.

Conductors are great materials that allow electricity to flow. For exapmle, copper is known to be a great conductor. A copper wire might be a great way to connect the plant and the electric source together. With that said, here on Science Buddies, we have a whole electricity science project category at this website: http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-f ... deas.shtml
From this you might be able to modify your experiment or even get ideas for a new one. Some even have material kits that you can order! If you have any other questions feel free to reply and experts will continue to help you.
