Where to get the really rare (Heliamphora, Cephalotus)

Any idea where to get a Sun Pitcher or an Australian Pitcher Plant? They're the only thing missing from my collection right now, and I have the extra room for them.

Is eBay my best bet?

I was always under the impression from reading that Cephalotus are rare, but they have been offered in large numbers from several sellers almost continuously for the past 3-4 months on ebay so I'm guessing that is just another rumor! I'm not a grower of these sorts of things except for a half-dozen VFT and a Sarracenia purpurea, but have sort of been contemplating getting one.....maybe next year :o) Dan
