    What the heck am I missing here? I know some of us have regretted having to pay a chunk on something we really wanted, but c'mon!

    Cheers,

    Joe

    This plant from looking at the hanging basket is obviously from Deroos nursery and you can purchase it for about $10 wholesale in an eight inch hanging basket exactly as pictured. Some will have more pitchers. Deroos plants two plants per pot and then tops them when they start growing tall, this allows side branches to occur and sometimes as many as six leads are in one pot!

    Unfortunately the nursery staff there are air heads and don't know a thing!

    But its nice to know that my monsters must be worth a thousand in comparison then!

    Wow.. I dont care how big this plant is, Its clear to see this is only a scam for the seller to obtain more money. Sad really, i see a buch of people selling Nepenthes on ebay for unreal prices on typical plants.

    Sorry but I don't see the scam factor here.
    The person is selling something and is asking a price for it.
    As long as the item they are selling is how they describe it, and the image is real if they say it is, then they aren't scamming they are just (possibly) greedy.
    Notice that no one has bid on it!
    If it isn't worth that much money then it will go unsold, however if someone looks at it and says I have $100 that I want to spend on that plant, they buy it and are happy with what they bought then how have they been scammed?

    In a situation like ebay where the seller isn't pressuring you to buy, the fact that you find that you can buy something cheaper somewhere doesn't mean you have been scammed. It means you were too silly to check it out first or you didn't care, whose fault is that?

    Cheers, Troy.

    who said it was a scam? I just said I'd buy it...for less money. I agree with you. It would be a scam and you got the plant and it was a small cutting or something.
