    I was just referring to my earlier post that I thought bidding would be pushed to $1,000 by Japanese bidders. Then I checked it out yesterday, and lo and behold - a Japanese bidder had bid $1,000. I know how much money they're prepared to spend on collectables. It will be interesting to see if it goes higher - I have no foresight on that one unfortunately LOL.

    Nxtrusmardiensis is such a beautiful plant!. This is one hell of a nep.
    It's a shame that it's not as widely spread as other neps.

    Certainly, if i were buying it as an investment, to flip for profit, or else to propagate and sell more of.

    But as a collector, no.

    I'll wait until it is more common in cultivation.

    I know, I find it hard to believe. Given that x Trusmadiensis is likely to be more widely available in the future, it's merely the head start that you're paying a huge premium on - but that it what people are paying for when they buy a new or hard to get Nep. I've paid good money for rare stuff, but even I have my limits. I'm just greatful I got most of my really rare stuff for free [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/blues.gif[/img]
