    Me personally it depends on the rarity of the plant and how it looks like, size, color, pitcher shape and size, ect.... but yes, i would pay about 200.00 max on one plant to the conditions I witten before this. The most I ever paid for a Nepenthes was for my 22"+ diam. truncata @ 80.00. That was for a large plant!. I paid a smaller amount for my rajah but it was a good price for its size. Its about 6"+ in diam. I also paid about 40.00 for another rajah that i had but died! That was a 2" diam plant. I know i havent even paid half of what other payed for their jac's or the plat's. But someday I will one of my own.

    i paid $50 for a cutting of probably one of the nicest striped veichii i have ever seen. i didnt know what a deal i was getting then. if presented with the same opportunity again i would have paid triple for what i got. basically depends what it is and what i have for funds at the time.

    $75 for a large, red pitchered sumatrana, plus $5 shipping. I hope I'll never pay that much for a single plant again [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] . I like the philosophy of waiting until expensive prices go down.

    $80 or so for a highland truncata. Now it's a yard across with 10+" pitchers, so I have no idea what it's worth now (more than I'd pay [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] ).

    i also belive in that phlosophy too. prices will go down due to TC and cuttings for more rarer and hard to get plants. u know something the aristo's will go up in price!
