    Yes they do at certain nurseries, but I am told that these are imported plants from Taiwan. You would find it very difficult for any nursery to own up to their plants being collected from the wild here. Collection of wild plants is strictly prohibited here, However you do find the occasional 'orang asli' (aborigines) selling it by the roadside.

    The collector got a bargain. I have seen gigantea's smaller than the one in your picture go for $500.
