    Now, I wouldn't care if it was the tree from the garden of eden, I couldn't pay over 500 usd for a single plant. Just way too much...

    I certainly would. I paid $600 for a Paphiopedilum sanderianum and resold it for $2,450.00. I'ld say my original investment gave me an ample return.

    And the auction hasn't ended yet. I would be surprised if we didn't get higher bids from Japanese collectors. I'm betting it will get around AUD1,000.

    According to market economics, it's worth what someone is prepared to pay for it...

    WOW! I got one that almost looks just like that growing in my back yard, if you compare it to petunias. I've always wanted that, but I think I'll wait unti lthe price comes down. Even if it never comes down. I think I can live without it. (Boy, has my plant addiction changed).

    Sad part is they'll probably sell it to some guy who takes his plants way too seriously or some botanical garden, some of the prices these days are crazy, you could buy a nice greenhouse with selves, heating and still have money left over for that! They're charging 50 bucks on directTV to view a boxing match, 50 bucks! I could pay for some nice plants with that
    EDIT: Also, why cant someone put one of them up for the NASC? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    I just can hope that my seedling N.macrophylla of possibly hybrid origin is this hybrid!!! What a mad mad price! I never want to be just a "collector" or "plant dealer"...
