RE: [Aroid-l] Rare Meconostigma Philo gets bid of $280

Interesting point...btw, it's now up to $330!

It's interesting how these hybrids attract so much
interest...personally, i'll take a natural species
anytime over these conglomerations, but that's just my
opinion...this might be because i like visiting and
studying specimens (both plants and critters like
leafcutters) in the wild instead of just growing them,
who knows...it would be different if some of these
hybrids somehow "escaped" and formed dominant natural
breeding populations...now THAT - THAT would be
interesting ;-)
