    I got an eye on ebay. I was the only one who bid on a large N. sanguinea and N. khasiana. Both looked a little abused, but they are obviously old plants, and they will recover just fine in my hands [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] ! The one that was labeled as N. sanguinea, but actualy N. khasiana- http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....IT&rd=1
    I'm sure if it were labeled correctly, I would have had a lot more competition!
    The real sanguinea is in its vining stage, and I would not have bought if it didn't have that basal shoot. It was also here that I noticed the khasiana tag that apparently got mixed up-

    What a great buy! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I was eyeing that one. I've found some real gems on ebay. I figure this one is good for a few cuttings if nothing else. The price you got was very low, given the size of the plant. You'll have to do some rehab on it though, as it isn't being treated right. But it's big and alive and has multiple growth points, so you'll have a great one on your hands in no time!

    I was tempted by that one too. Glad it went to a fellow nepaholic!

    I just hope they survive the shipping [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] . I don't know how much this guy knows about nepenthes growing, and he might ship them a little too dry, as he would for many of his orchids. I'll have to make a note to him about that...

    I just got the plants today, and indeed it is a sanguinea and khasiana. They are rather beat up though, but better condition than I expected. I asked the guy to ship them with something moist, but instead he COMPLETELY bare rooted them and put a lil orchid mix in the bag with the roots. Thank god it only took them 2 days to get here [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] . Poor things don't have the root mass that they should, most likely because they've been grown like orchids [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img] . Anyway, I soaked them for an hour or two in a 2 drop per cup superthrive solution, and I think they'll do fine. I think both had 5 growth points, so these will be really bushy in no time [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] ! I just can't wait til I get my new truncata x veitchii red, and rafflesiana kondo x singapore giant...
