    Jeese, I guess I'ma have to pm you and tell you where to go to find some retailers. Is this your first plant? If so you should spend an extra $10 or so for a larger one. Trust me.

    i prefer to purchase my neps from Tony, it will be very hard to beat the quality plants you get from him for the money you spend. ive purchased several neps from him in the past and he has never failed to surprise me with his quality. plus i know plants from him have been hardened off. ebay is generally where i get my "test" plants, generally i purchase hose from Cooks, but if there is a plant i REALLY want i shoot Tony an email cause for the money spent, even if its more, its going to be bigger and better IMHO

    I had bad luck with one of those 2" truncatas from Ebay. Didn't grow worth a darn and eventually gave up the ghost. I have since bought a 5or 6" one from an online store (I can't remember now which one! Darn it), but it's doing very well.

    I doubt very much that those 1" plants for $4.99 are trully the highland variety.

    The highland form can be quite a fast grower: my plant was five inches in diameter when I bought it in March '04 and it's just over two feet across with ten-inch pitchers today.
    Cheers,
