    $30!? Our sushi Buffet is $7.99 a person but then maybe the salmonella sushi bar isn't the best after all... LOL

    Hope that salmonella sushi bar comes with health care... Perhaps a 'Free one per customer immunity shot'

    Congrats on making ''The Eddy List''!

    150 euros, not bad for an extremely rare plant in cultivation. Are these seed grown or TC'ed? Most likely TC'ed from this supplier. I wonder how many different clones there are? Also remember I believe the shipping and handling fee will be added. I think my fee for my last order form this supplier was 27 euros. These plants will probably be less than an inch leaf tip to tip. Still about 180 euros for an eddy is not bad. Good luck everyone who gets one.
    I am no longer growing highlanders so I will not be getting one. I am concentrating on my new lowlander/intermediate greenhouse. I am more excited about this suppliers new Thialand Neps that have been bunched together as N. thorelli. I can get one of each of these for less than 150 euros all in.

    Since I'm only going to get absolute faves and interesting smaller species this time round instead of collecting every single Nep I can get my mitts on my price per plant can go up especially for a long-desired for centerpiece plant like this.

    I asked him if there was different clones but he didn't say. I have to imagine there are a few, let's hope they're all at least orange or red and not yellow/green forms - what bummer that would be! LOL

    I guess it was only a matter of time before this plant was commercially available. Personally, although I won't be getting one any time soon, I'm surprised that the plant is only 150 Euro. I would certainly expect it to be a bit more expensive considering the attention this plant garners/the desirability it holds. Either way, somebody at Borneo exotics is kicking themselve for not being able to get a couple clones of this plant. I'm sure the current supplier pays the same amount of money to TC all his plants, therefore, he is making a killing on these sales. Oh, the money you can make when you have something lots of people will pay a lot of money for.

    While I don't doubt Wistuba's veracity, I have received seed from overseas, purporting to be Nepenthes edwardsiana on three different occasions since 2002 -- from what I then believed to be reputable sources -- only to discover that they were either N. macrophylla or, far more often, N. trusmadiensis.

    I would be interested to know the provenance of that seed and its tissue culture. For US 205.79 per plantlet (just ex vitro), I would hope for some minor assurances . . .

    Do you have to pay the price of the plant to get on the waiting list? It would only make sense.... If that's the case I may have to just forfeit and get one in a year or two when the price drops or I have more money again... I already bought myself a few expensive toys
