    Cephalotus "Hummers Giant"

    Better hurry only 4 1/2 days left to get this monster

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Cephalotus-f...item3a8582301c

    Am I missing something?

    I see 1 adult pitcher and 3 juveniles, & a couple of leaves.

    I've said it before; eBay should not be regarded as an accurate barometer for valuing plants of this sort. Nobody with any knowledge of this species/cultivar would pay that much for a "starter" plant of that size. Two years ago I paid $45 for a size able division of 'Hummers Giant'.

    Move along - nothing to see here......

    My thoughts exactly - only much more eloquently said.

    Egads! What have those bidders been sniffing?

    That is ridiculous a plant that size is worth $50 if I'm being generous.

    Its just simple supply/demand, there is no supply for the unconnected consumer right now. You either import them, call a lot of nurseries/e-mail a lot of people, or wait.

    I know of a few places online were you can get a typical Ceph right now but in my quick searches any clones are completely unavailable.

    Would I pay that for a Hummer's now, well no...but I know people who have them and I would check with them.

    I think this is a bit of an opportunity for a lot of the people who are a part of this forum. It's nice to know that there is demand out there for anyone who wants to make some $$$ from the hobby, although that much for a ceph is pretty nuts....

    For the time and effort ANY Ceph seed is the way to go if you want silly money. Packing Cephs is not any fun. Packing seeds is very easy.

    Right now the only listings for Ceph seeds is $4 a seed, the lowest is generally $1-2 a seed.
