expensive seeds

Tomas reported on an eBay offer of 25 seeds of Worsleya from a seller  
in Brazil.  There have been 11 bids, and the high bid is currently at  
$108.  These are obviously very much in demand.  Maybe the bidders  
should join together and share the seeds, rather than bidding each  
other up.

Clivia is another genus with expensive seeds, though just of the very  
uncommon ones.  I wondered if I could support any of my bad habits  
(like buying seeds) by buying an expensive Clivia and selling its  
seeds each year.  My old original orange one had two stalks of a dozen  
flowers each, but only four seedpods are forming.  A rare one might  
have even fewer pods.  I haven't cut a pod open to see how many seeds  
are inside, but I don't see this as a way to make a lot of money.
