    That's chump change if you are collecting Antique Japanese Swords or Chinese Ceramics.

    most hobbies have some element of insanity to them!

    I've seen rare Nepenthes for sale at a nursery for over $1000.

    The most I would ever pay for a carnivorous plant would be around $80 or so.



    But I personally think a Bonsai tree would be really cool to have. I'll have to look more into them.

    I wanna make a Kudzu Bonsai, but I've been told I'm not allowed to cause any ecological disasters this year.

    yup you can bonsai any plant you can keep alive, just prune the top and the roots and keep it in the same pot its whole life. ive seen some exasperating azaleas, that were forty years old at a bonsai show, that isn't that old in bonsai culture but, it sure makes a nice azalea.

    crazy is relative!
    I wouldnt pay 1 cent for a Britney Spears album..
    anyone who spends more than 1 cent for one is, in my opinion, crazy.

    conversely, if I *had* $100,000 in spare change, I would happily buy a 1965 Shelby Cobra..
    which many people would consider crazy..

    if you have the cash, how you spend it is no one elses concern..

    Haha - not that I disagree with you, but obviously you aren't referring to the news lately.
