Couple of blankets can keep you warm. so does the excitement and glow of enjoyment from a new brug.

Just look at those pictures in the forum.

mmmmmmmmmm...

They only went for a hundred bucks whats that a decent dinner out with a few drinks lol

RE: German Brugs on ebay

Look a the comparison, a dinner passes through you in 12 to 24 hours and is gone; drinks, even shorter.

A brug can last for years and years. You can enjoy it's beauty several times during the season.

RE: German Brugs on ebay

There are plenty of people who can't afford $100 plants nor $100 dinners - with or without drinks.

Buying a plant is no guarantee that you'll have it for years, really.

However, I think the price is high when you compare them to other brugmansias available. I also think they are worth it.

Up to this point in the thread, it was a light hearted one. I think you somehow did not get the essence of it.

"There are plenty of people who can't afford $100 plants nor $100 dinners - with or without drinks"

Obviously, or the price would have been a lot higher.

The seller has a very good reputation for her plants and I think those who are willing to pay the price to be amongst the first to have this variety will most certainly have it for years. The price weeds out the novice brug grower asap.

When you compare these brugs, you need to make sure you are comparing apples to apples.

I am glad that the brug s went for as much as they did. I'm sure Alice has made a sizable investment to first buy cuttings of Monika's plants and then when you factor in shipping costs, phytosanitary certificates and brokerage fees -it is really nice to see that she can recoup some of her money back.

RE: German Brugs on ebay

Those are really beautiful. I'm a newbie and that was my first look at ebay brug listings. I've been trying to keep my collection under control, but all the enablers here are making it so very difficult.


 o
RE: German Brugs on ebay

I wasn't criticizing Alice at all. I have a great deal of respect for her. I'm sure that she will give value for the price, trust me.

My sensitivity was to the "what's a hundred dollars" theme in the thread. Not the cost of the plants themselves.

If I over reacted then I apologize.

RE: German Brugs on ebay

Well, folks there are more on there , so I'm gonna give it another go. lolol Who needs lights hhahah I have the sun, and it is almost warm here at times lolol. You guys are to funny. But they are a large amount of money to me, but I'm gonna keep tryin. that said one day when I do get my hands on one it will be that much more sweeter! MMWWAAAAHHhhhhhaa

RE: German Brugs on ebay

I'd never spend much on a brug. They are so easily propagated and within a couple years will be available for a fraction of the original cost. There's so many gorgeous varieties. I don't care if I'm not one of the first to have a new variety. Plants that aren't easily propagated are another story and I will pay what some might consider a ridiculous amount for something that's difficult to clone or grow from seed.

RE: German Brugs on ebay

Sekhment go for the rooted! lol Trying to get these Monika cuttings to root is a trick for sure. So far so good but I would rather have them already rooted. But price is right for cuttings. The german brugs are the bomb! Its nice that they hold the value do all that work to produce such a fine plant to have some one else get it grow it and sell it for 3-4 dollars a stick. That would break my heart there smart. Mr Sommer has quite a few decent brugs on there now You can have in your mind whats somethings worth, its only worth what someone else is willing to pay.

RE: German Brugs on ebay

LOL yep I know I have a couple that were very tricky to root for me to lolol. I have one right now that I think wants to root dry lolol. I am trying but I just had to empty my pockets for the kids I only have 3 but they are breaking me. lolol, 2 are in teakwondo, 2 are in young marines,ones going in band, and a garden club. and riding lessons, and they smacked me with school pics. Thats it I'm gonna sell them on ebay! heheheh just a joke maybe lolol.
