    Cool. How old is the rajah supposed to be?

    You need to make the right friends.
    You make it sound so mob-like.

    Actually, it's a cult. You need to know the 'secret handshake'.

    I wouldn't really call it "mob-like", but when someone gets access to extremely hard to find seeds, they're not going to give them to just anybody. If rajah seeds were publicly offered, they'd be snapped up by everyone who has any clue what a nep is in a matter of minutes. Tons of people have rajah, but I can think of maybe 10 people on the planet that have the conditions to care for one long term.

    No use wasting something rare. If 99% of the people that wanted rajah seeds got them, it'd be just that - a complete waste. As I said, hardly anyone (comparatively) can deal with the plant until maturity.

    Kinda the same thing with other species, but I guess more with rate. Why give them to a n00b who might not even get any to germinate, or will get very low germination, when you can give them to a good grower you know can get high germination and also care for the resulting plants properly.

    Some call it snobby, but realistically, that's what is known as responsible.

    I agree you have to know people. You have to learn to grow the easy to get stuff then show you are committed and can handle the harder to get rarer stuff. Call it paying your dues and showing your commitment to the plants. So if that is not a better reason to get to know people and make friends, I don't know what is.

    Oh, I don't disagree with either of you; in fact, I agree 100%.
    I just found how you said it to be somewhat comical.
