    I know it's probably not polite to ask but how much was it? (PM me if you wish) It looks quite large and I'd expect it was not cheap.

    And of course, do they have more this size?[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Hi Swords, yes it costs as much as a N. jacquelinae; however, this one is a big plant so I am very pleased with it. It won't be long until i try some cuttings with it.

    P.S. I am sure this plant will hit the U.S. Market soon

    Agustin:
    Either your N. jacquilineaes are really expensive, or you got a great deal on a plant that size/condition!! If it's ok with you, I'll post a more informal post on the boards, otherwise, I'd like to discuss it via P.M. CONGRATULATIONS ON THE NEW PLANT!!

    Dear all:

    I have been told by some members of the forum (privately) that N. jacquelinae varies in price in a wide range. so I guess the price of N. argentii would be more appropriate for N. izumiae at this stage. Sorry if i mislead anyone.

    Still not shocking! Most people don't realize how much cuttings or large plants of true species Neps are since all they ever see available for the most part is 1" - 3" diameter plants.

    Unlike orchids where the (accredited) hybrids sell for way more than the true species (non wild collected plants anyway), Neps are the opposite.

    It's a very nice plant and worth every penny I'm sure![img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    Too bad it'd be over $100 for me just to cover the customs paperwork and shipping from those folks. That's not including plant price!

    Good to be back. I know, I was thinking about ordering from them several times, but the price of shipping and phyto sanitary, as well as lack of true species to choose from always detured me. Um, just so I'm sure, we are allowed to post names of suppliers and prices, and stuff like that now, right?
