    Hi guys,
    I need your opinion on this. Do guys think a 2"(the diameter) N. truncata worth the price for $8?

    Trouble breathing? Let me know.

    $8 is cheap for anything. However, you can get much larger plants for cheap at various retailers. I would suggest the latter option since truncata seedling grow very slowly, and won't be of much interest.

    You could get a 6-inch plant for $15 from Tony Paroubek, or a 9-incher for $25. I bought one of those little ones on ebay, it's healthy and a good deal, but believe me, it will take a LONG time to get to six inches. Your better bet is Tony, imo.

    I checked on ebay and guess wat i saw? It said N. trucata 1" for $4.99. I also read the discription and it said:

    " A highland species,is characterized by its smooth swollen
    pitchers with a narrowed 'waist'.A number of varieties exist
    and pitcher colour can vary from yellow green to red."

    I don't know if the trucata is real a highland or not, but if it is i would buy it for being a highland species without doubt. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
    So what do u guys think, should i go for it? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]
