    Does anyone else think that Miranda and Lady Pauline are terrible names for a male plant?

    I think I might be the only person who isn't very enthusiastic about this. I really don't see what all the hype is about, the parents are great looking plants, and $50 is a good price for those seedlings, but, there's really no guarantee that the kids will look that great, and I really don't think the parents are all THAT incredible. Definitely not worth the feeding frenzy they have caused.

    You're not alone Davey. I also have no desire to grow these plants. If anything, I would be interested to see what the seedlings that were held back look like compared to the ones being sold. I think they had a different leaf form or something like that.

    I don't know where you are getting them for 50 dollars, Borneo Exotics is selling them at wholesale for more than that.

    i checked again to be sure, and BE is selling them at WHOLESALE for 50 bucks. The cost of importation and the amount of purchase that someone has to put in with them means that there is no way you are buying these for 50 bucks. I would think that retail price for someone to actually get one of these is going to be closer to 100 in order for the wholesale purchaser to get their money back and make a profit.
