I heard that it was extremely difficult to grow and requires a very precise set of conditions, let alone being very hard to acquire. I believe several Org members have tried and failed.

Why do people want this species in the first place,...?
Just because it's the biggest?

Kind regards,
Remko.

Because...if you don't try you don't know. Just because everyone else failed means I will too?
I'm still looking for seeds of this elusive guy as well...in my mind "everything is hardy till I kill it"

No-one has them, they are like Basjoo seeds - as rare as hens teeth.

For something that big, it would be hard to provide the weird climate requirements. Be cool to try though.
