Blc Eagle Island 'Sangria' AM/AOS

Blc Eagle Island 'Sangria' AM/AOS

I like to keep track of what Steve Christoffersen has for sale on eBay. His collection is head and shoulders above mine in quality and rarity. He has been collecting for 30 years and has some exciting plants.

I just now looked at this weeks offerings and started to drool when I saw this Blc. With 4 days left it is up over $600. I put it on my watch list so that I can see the final price. I know I won't be bidding on it. I plan to try to see the plant before it is shipped.

UPDATE: I now have seen the plant and the flower and took some pictures. The picture above is closer to the actual rich, dark color.

  1. That's nice. But seriously, this is a ridiculous amount of money for that plant. I guess by definition it is worth whatever someone is willing to pay, but still...

  2. I know what you mean. It is described as not very available. Still, better than $100,000 for a Neofinetia falcata.

  3. I think there may be a "Christofferson effect". The mere fact that they are his plants inflates the value of the plant well in excess of the "true" value.
