    Most valuable CP in the industry?

    My guess is that this distinction would go out to the Cephalotus. Are there any fellow CP enthusiasts here that would agree? We see fine A-grade, mature specimens often fetching thousands of dollars, of not more.

    My second guess would be certain species of Nephenthes.

    Nepenthes edwardsiana claims that distinction, I think. No matter how expensive the ceph (Eden Black), it's only a fraction of what an Nepenthes edwardsiana will command WHEN they become available.

    Wait, what? What is the reason for this? What's so special about this plant?

    No reason, it just is!
    Brokken's absolutely right though.

    I've never heard of a ceph going for thousands of dollars.. but I've seen Nepenthes edwardsiana go for just that.
    The reason these plants are so expensive is because of their rareness, and viscous beauty.

    I agree. If you can find these for sale, baby Nepenthes edwardsiana will sell for hundreds of dollars. Wistuba offered babies for sale earlier this year for a large amount of money and they were sold within a day.

    @list: Utricularia campbelliana is a high roller as well. a small 1x1 plug is currently in the market for 150 euro = ~$200. a 1x1 plug! can you imagine how much a pot full would be worth? S. 'Reptilian Rose', S. 'Leah Wilkerson', and S. 'Adrian Slack' also are high costly plants, while they might not cross the grand mark, $900 is still a large chunk of change for the middle class american to splurge.

    however, fwiw: you shouldnt buy a plant based upon value; buy a plant because you desire it for what it simply is. you'll end up much happier that way.
