    N. truncata "Queen of Hearts" x "King of Spades"?

    I'm thinking of purchasing one of these, as the parent plants look just lovely.
    I've found what seems to be a good deal on one, but I'm wondering, have any of you guys acquired one of these little guys? If so, what has your experience been with it, and what are things I should know to keep myself from throwing 50 bucks away?

    I caved and bought one, I'll be receiving it in the post after I return home from my vacation, along with a young N. lowii.
    I also have a new lighting idea to try when I get back!

    Much like other cultivars or varieties of N. truncata, it is a rapid grower and mine are easily twice the size they were when i first received them a few months ago . . .
