    Holy Crap! $$$ Plant!

    I can't even imagine spending what amounts to a rent or mortgage payment on a plant! My hat is tipped to you, Mr/Ms. SERIOUS nepenthes lover with the deep pockets or absurd credit card balance.

    I saw that too and it blew my mind. What I find even more insane is that an unrooted cutting of thorellii x aristo just went for $81!! That is insane to me...

    hell...i got mine for 20$... if they are as insanely vigorous as has been said....this could be a real money maker!!! bahaha!!

    however. lowii x truncata dosent surprise me. and even then a N. x trusmadiensis cutting went for over 1000USD when sold on eBay. lowii x truncata one of the "legendary" hybrids. something that is so incredible that...well its crazy.

    thorellii x aristo is hyper vigorous. I have a 1m vine and a .5m vine right now and looking at them I admit I see $ signs...

    IIRC I paid $40 for my lowii x truncata...

    I saw this a while ago, and honestly didn't think it would go for more than 300. 350 tops.

    What makes this one so special? I'll admit I slobbered over the keyboard when I first saw the listing, but I guess this goes back to the whole supply and demand thing.

    Hell of a nice plant though.

    It'd be nice if the winner was on TF and a cutting was prepared for the auction this summer. That'd be a lovely gesture to help out the cause.

    just sheer size of the plant (and the fact that it came from exotica....) makes it special. both parents features can be seen in the hybrid. and if im not mistaken...there were at first asll seed grown making them all unique.
