    They are selling it for $5.95. The shop is new - The Garden Shed on El Camino (for the Bay Area guys), in San Carlos. They specialize in hydroponics and sell a lot of indoor lighting equipment. They have nice and fat VFTs there too selling for about $7.

    Actually, looking at Steve's photo, it jogged my memory. The plant I have that looks the same as vftgrrl's plant is different from my capensis x spat. I still think it's a hybrid, though, and certainly not D. nidiformis:

    geez Steve your plant looks so nice and healthy. What's the best way to keep it, if its the D. capensis x spatulata ? I bought it two days ago, and it spent that amount of time under part sun (morning sun).

    vftgrrl, now it makes sense. I also bought mine here in the bay area at a hydroponics store (Plant It Earth). It has the same pot and the same moss poking through.

    Well that plant in that pic looks considerably worse now that I have almost killed it by trying to grow it in the yard. When that pic was taken it was growing in a 10 gallon tank with 2 24" fluorescent light tubes about 6 inches over the plant.
    There are only 2 infinite things... the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not too sure about the universe.

    I still have mine, and it's thriving under fluorescent lights indoors. You can give it a shot outdoors, but a sunny window or in a tank under lights would be a sure bet. In any case, it's not too expensive, and you can make some leaf cuttings just in case.

    I'd be careful buying plant material at any hydoponics / indoor growing shop in Cali. You'd be surprised what may volunteer sprout later
