    Alright,
    SirK will now PM us where the deals are!
    It'll make my day... if I can get it before everyone else does!
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    My guess is that SirKristoff was remembering the gold old days of when this plant was first released and they were going for 40-50 dollars initially.

    Strange this appears to be the only case I can think of in the Nepenthes hobby where plants have gotten significantly more expensive over time as opposed to cheaper. Of course the price will probably drop when the next batch comes out as well, assuming BE doesn't charge more in light of the plants being elevated to species status.

    I personally wouldn't pay 100 dollars or more for it, but then again truncata and vetchii are some of the least desirable plants in my own book. However, that's not to say that I don't find N. robcantleyi totally beautiful. Definitely my favorite relative (or variety [if your EP]) of N. truncata that I have seen.

    I didn't buy it for 100$, i bought it for 55$ at an infantile stage, but i checked on all websites i could find and no-one was selling it below 100$ who had it in stock.
    If Swiss Cheese has holes, and more holes=less cheese, and more cheese=more holes, does that mean that more cheese=less cheese?
