    When My plants start vining, I plant to give cuttings away. Most likely, it will be at a price less than what I bought the mother plant to be fair, and in order to make theese plants easier to obtain.

    I paid $250.00 for a N. tenuis, other expensive one I have are.
    N. ampullaria CR-29 ‘Red’ BE
    N. argentii
    N. jacquelineae 1850 m
    N. jacquelineae 1750 m
    N. macrophylla
    N. platychila
    N. spec. nov. Sumatra
    N. x ‘Predator’
    I did get a few of them for trade so it is not quite as bad as it looks.

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.
    $50 is a steal- my N. x Briggsiana var Peter D'Amato I got at the auction was $105.00

    whats $105 for a plant you really want? i can easily pay anywhre from $20-$150 for a frog that can comfortably sit on my thumbnail. and these arent particularily rare species. ppl pay $200 plus for pure bred dogs. finding my lil schipperkee a boyfriend will probably run me $400 or so when ever i get around to it. yah cant take $$ to your grave with you so yah might as well enjoy life. it comes down to what is the plant(animal, car ect) is worth to you. not what its worth to someone else
