    Hi Santos, nice to see you here.

    I once paid $15 for a mated pair of mature edwardsianas...then I woke up Seriously, it is probably the $30 I just spent on a small highland truncata or the $32 + shipping for a veitchii x lowii hybrid. Thats not too much, maybe I should go buy some more right now! I guess I like to buy small and let them grow. Trading has recently become a nice way to increase my collection.

    Interesting...here in Germany you can buy highland N. truncata plants in garden centers for less money. I got most of my Nepenthes through swapping. Most expensive plants were N. inermis for 30 Euro and N. hamata for 20 Euro.

    I've paid over US$120 for some species, but when you add Australian quarantine costs, it hits around $150. I would pay more for mature plants of rare species.

    My hamata had around a 5 to 6" leaf span when I got it. It's around 14" now.
    Most the time when people show there newly acquired hamata they are around a 3" leaf span.

    Not really the amt. of money paid, its the money to plant rarity and size. N. villosa is notorious for holding this reputation of priceyness to plant size and rarity, its a pretty rare plant, expensive and darned small when you can get ahold of it. $35 for a 1.5" across plant is expensive....then again seeing N. argentii for $180+ is scary. N. platychila is up there too....$135+ last I checked and its about the size of a retail N. villosa. BUt as far for priceyness....I'd say N.x Briggsana for $50 mature cutting (a steal at that price!!!) and N. aristolochioides at $55 for a tiny plant. N. macrophylla tops the scales at $80 though.
