    At the time I purchased mine it was $65.00, that was over a year and a half ago.
    I was very happy with the size of the plant. Tony's plants are top notch.
    Pretty pricey, but I wouldn't mind paying that for such a unique plant. I'll have to keep an eye out for when they get back in stock.

    Actually it's a sliding glass door facing south were I grow my plants. I just use the term windowsill because it's easier.
    The 2 large hanging baskets are 14". The smaller hanging basket is 6". I would really like to move the nep from the 6" into a 14" basket, but I do not have room. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]



    During the day the blinds are totally open, so whatever sun light comes through the glass is what they get.
    The average humidity is 40%.

    elgecko: I love your setup with those hanging baskets. I can see both your bigger Neps are climbing up toward the ceiling! How do you water those baskets without getting your floor all wet?

    N. hamata isn't the tempramental monster it's supposed to be. It certainly can't take hot conditions, but lives happily in intermediate/highland conditions, in my experience. It's just that they cost so darn much that it's scary to grow.
