    actually i dont think ive ever sold a CP, i have charged someone $20 for packaging up 20 some Utrics but that was more for the hassel of taking and properly labeling 20 some plugs plus priority mail, not because i was out to make $$. i would much rather trade for stuff i dont have than to sell. i tend to come out better in trade as far as im concerned anyways [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    I suppose they're afraid it might hurt the nep. And probably, as well, they know if it goes on the trade forum they will be bombarded with more responses than they can cut their plant up into.

    Not that easy to do, I say. We'll see when we get there. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Not necessarily true. Some of us do cut our vines regularly but wish to not be bothered with the expectation or hassle to share them, so we just toss them. Yes....hamata included, at least in my case. Perhaps if you're patient and don't 'ask' people to share their plants you may see them offered up for trade or for free.

    If I offered a free chunk of my hamata vine on here, I couldn't keep up with the replies. I personally will not lie, I have plenty of N. hamata material, but its too much of a hassle to offer it up, i don't have enough time as a full time student/part time worker to keep up with the requests and my life. This hobby is very time consuming when you have prior comittments!

    that is true Ng but just think, you could quit the part time job and start selling plants instead, a hamata vine cutting will go for hunreds.

    hundreds? i doubt it. ive have two neps far rarer than a hamata cutting and neither are worth hundreds. i wouldnt pay $100 for an unrooted cutting of hamata but i would for another cutting of the N. veitchii i already have if i had $100 to spare.
