Total package for 160+shipping of $25 for express mail with heat pack with live delivery. Or $8 for shipping priority mail with heat pack w/o live delivery. I will use a styro insulated box for the package deal only. I am willing to break up the package at listed prices. Buy the whole package and I will throw in 3 S grade CRS shrimp.

Good luck finding these plants AT ALL, much less for a cheaper price. I think they're beautiful and probably a great deal, given their rarity! Enough with the criticism already! Let the man sell his plants!

Thanks to those who are not thread crapping. I guess some people just don't understand the rarity of some of the plants. The Crypt is a 90 dollar plant when you can find it. And even at that the only place you can get it besides me is in asia. The Sao Francisco is still about a 18 dollar/stem plant on a current plant list I got from singapore.

Expensive because it is hard to find. It is not that hard to keep alive. Under the right growth conditions the leaves show the distinct white-pink veining. All plants of this cultivar originally came from a single mutant plant collected from the wild.

That Crypt. isn't ultra hard to keep, but it isn't like any other run of the mill crypt. It's really hard to find and challenging enough to keep.

That Sao Francisco on the other hand is a bear to get to grow...

These are probably some of the rarest plants that you will ever see for sale.

Absolutly beautiful. But I would be hung by my feet to pay that much. I also know Im not expert enough to keep these yet. Iv just finally upgraded to a pressurized system. But they are stunning and worth it. XD

Ahhh come on guys they aren't that difficult.

Very soft water, lots of light (not necesaary for the C. cordata), lots of CO2, definitely AquaSoil......

Well said. The shrimp alone are worth a good portion of that. Actually rather generous of Ian.

Beautiful plants. A bit beyond my ability to keep those plants for now. Maybe in the future.

Not thread hating just saying that these plants are expensive. I think a lot of people understand that these are rare and that makes them expensive. I still can only say. WOW expensive. I feel the same way when i see a Porsche and you dont get free stuff with a Porsche unless you count women who want you for your car as free stuff.
