I bought a couple from curious plant. They're alright. They came in about 4-5 inch leaves give or take. If you do go that route, I suggest throwing a few osmocote pellets on the corners of the 2.5in pot it comes in. The plants benefit greatly from the boost. They weren't really "vigorous." They're healthy enough though and bounced back quick.

I don't have one yet, but if my cuttings strike then I'll let you know :D They're great plants, they just don't work like your normal Drosera

I can understand wanting to buy from a hobbyist or someone enthusiastic about them. I've noticed the difference in the health of the leaves in the time that I've owned it. I'm sure they didn't do a "bad" job, but they didn't grow it the same way. Regia needs a LOT of food, people feed them like capensis and their seedlings die off.

If you do end up going the commercial route, definitely keep that one in mind. Wouldn't want you having a bad time before you get the chance to enjoy it. I use about 7 osmocote smart release pellets in a 6x6in pot (3-4 for 2.5in) and feed it moths or whatever it catches and the plant is doing great. doubled the size since I've owned it and the leaves are more "robust." It doesn't look weak anymore :P
