He is a great guy trying to get rid of everything he has before he moves and has dropped his price to $6.00 per pot (most have 1 rhizome per pot) I would be willing to take orders and to ship to you for shipping costs if you are interested. The only thing I ask is depending on how many people order I would like some reimbursement for gas as I have to drive over an hour to pick these up. Some of these are amazing and not offered very often so I thought I would share the opportunity. I myself got over 20 from him today! Just reply or PM me if you're interested. I figured I would take orders through Sunday and then Monday I could go pick up what everyone wanted and ship out hopefully Monday or it would be a week from Monday as I work Tues, Wed, Thurs next week! He isn't shipping these, he's only selling locally, so let me know if you're interested!
