It's too expensive to keep ordering retail why don't you save up and place a wholesale order and then cover your overhead like shipping expenses and import fees, keep what you want and sell off the bulk of your order.
    This is hardly practical at all for the casual grower. So what you're saying is to basically to save up money so you can import hundreds of plants, then set up a business to compete with all the other well established nurseries that sell the same products? That seems more fiscally irresponsible to me.

    I'm not sure if this is on topic or not but what is the difference between a B52 and just a typical besides the price?

    Other than what SirKristoff stated, VERY HARD TO FIND, also i have seen some AWFULY LARGE Big Mouths, Red Giants and Big Vig's which i think there might be some out there that have surpassed the trap size and growth of the B52...

    This clone consistently grows traps over the 1.5" size when mature - up to 2.5" has been mentioned. The traps leaves are larger on both dimensions - measured parallel with the hinge as well as perpendicular to the hinge. The traps will take on a deep maroon color inside and out in good sun.

    There's not much to give scale in this shot of some VFTs at a nursery other then the plant tags and the 4 1/8th inch pots. The 'B52' is the front row plant on the right that dwarfed everything in the case:


    Here's one of my 'B52's from last year showing the coloration they can pick up. Traps are probably 2/3 to 1/2 the size of Peter's plant above. 3.5" pot:

    I just recieved my plants today and let me tell you that you won't be dissapointed! Here's mine fresh out of the box. [IMG][/IMG]

    And 3 out of the 4 traps that are there are at least 1" so if that isn't a great indicator of the plant health then I don't know what is!
