    sucker born every minute

    to the genius who paid >1000 pounds for a months-old ceph cutting: i have the best investment!!! you simply can not pass it up! for the low low price of $10K you can be the proud owner of a very rare cultivar of n ventricosa, thought to be the much sought after reddish clone.

    Hah! I have a color-changing green-ish alata! It will grow all green, up until the moment you agree to trade cuttings, and then the little bugger will go bronzy with red peristomes. Only 1K, a steal!
    If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.

    Eeeouch! That thing went high! And it's such a teeny plant.. But hey props to the guy who sold it. He's laughing all the way to the bank now.

    wow I felt like a **** having spent $50 on a hummers giant a year or so back that now has mould on it and looks real sick, stupid cephs. Its the old rule the most expensive plants are always the slowest growing sicklest plants in your collection.

    ps.
    Never repot a healthy looking ceph.

    Good advice. I'm sure many a Cephalotus have been killed by unnecessary repotting. I certainly wouldn't attempt it on a £1,220GBP plant

    Oh pish posh, I repotted a perfectly healthy looking ceph hummer's giant that had all immature pitchers except for one mature looking pitcher on it last year: it lost a few pitchers to drying/shriveling up because I literally washed it clean (it got a violent bath) when removing from its old material, but now it's putting out its first adult pitcher for me after winter.

    I was referring to repotting a healthy Cephalotus when there is no need to, e.g. it has not outgrown its existing pot. I have read quite few post where people have repotted newly acquired Cephalotus because they don't like the look of the media it is in - despite the fact that it is growing fine in it - why would you risk it?

    Good point, mobile! Same goes for any cp specie.
    That price makes me worry a bit. Not a good thing for the hobby. If the seller is who i think he is then good for him...he is giving away free plants all the time so why not get something back once in a while?! Anyway, i think the 2 bidders looked at the first photo and believed that that one is the plant they fighting for.
    Best regards,
