Hi everyone,
I thought it might be worth asking about, although I am quite sure I am not the only one chasing these broms.  I am very fond of the Neo carcharodon type broms, ie Tiger, Silver, Giant, Spines, Macho, Rainbow, etc the list goes on and on.  But I'm sure you all know the type I am talking about, big teeth strong tough looking Neos.
I am honestly not a fan of ebay and the bidding wars people get into. 
I would much rather buy from someone privately for an agreed price.
It would also have to be from someone else in Australia. 
If you have anything that you think I might be interested in, can you please message me. 
I do have Skotak's Tiger and Macho.  But anything else is this type of area, I would love to add to my collection.
Thanks so much,
Tash.
Oh PS I would be delighted to get hold of seed as well.   Grin

Hi Tash,

I suspect that people will want to sell their pups on eBay while the prices are still high, especially since they quite likely paid an even higher price on eBay to get their parent plant a couple of years ago!  But good luck, anyway.  It is definitely worth asking.

Cheers, Paul

My advise is to just wait for it. You can usually get anything you want if you are patient. Are you a member of a local bromeliad society? Joining a local society is the best way to get plants and learn about bromeliads.

Thanks Paul, that's what I am thinking too, but I just thought I'd ask and see what came of it.  I have heard of a few people just  lately picking up some real bargains from private sellers that don't seem to be chasing top dollar for their pups.  I think some people charge what they paid, or close to it, and others have more the opinion that they can can sell a few pups to recover the cost.  Everyone is different, hopefully someone might have some that they are willing to sell at a reasonable price.  
Worth a try huh?   Wink

Not holding my breath, but you just never know Smiley

Oh and thanks 378, sorry not sure of your name, but I'm not part of a Bromeliad Society as where I live it's a bit hard to get to one when the meetings are on.  I am learning alot about patience when it comes to broms Smiley
