Hey, I'm not getting an edwarsiana now, but I can tell you that when I was 13, of course I would have taken an edwardsiana anyday. I got all the cool plants I could get my hands on. It was always more important to have the rare plant than to have the necessary system it takes to grow it. I killed many plants that way.
It is one thing to successfully grow N. alata and another completely to successfully grow N. rajah. It takes experience to see the difference.
Added to all this, most people who start out at a young age are still learning basic skills such as remembering to water, keeping the cats and squirrels off of the plants, appropriate use of fertilizer, etc.
I'm not discriminating against anyone here, but I do think anyone involved in growing rare plants such as these needs to use wisdom and discretion rather than pure want. There are two basic options: a. you put together an appropriate grow chamber or greenhouse for the desired plant before buying it, or b. you pass up the opportunity and stick with plants more suited to your climate.
