    Ricordea value

    I was just wondering if pink yuma is the only real expensive ricordea... The LFS (completly no knowledge in anything) is receiving blue and orange ricordea tomorrow that I can have for 25$, wondering if this is a good price and any chance of them being worth much more than that...

    if it is per polyp, then I would say that it was a good price. Around here one polyp would cost approx. $40. unless it is green, they are normally 15-20

    Thats a fair price for the orange/blue ricordia nick... we are currently selling them for $30 a polyp. A rock with 3-5 polyps is $70-80... and the pinks are expensive. HTH

    why, should i not purchase them if they are not yuma ? They never mentionned if it was yuma or not. all i know is that there is both orange and blue ricordea at 20$-25$

    2 ways to tell:

    1) Check the mouth. If it is smooth, then it is a Florida. If it is bumpy, then it is a Yuma.

    2) The tenticles on a Florida are more frequent and packed tighter than a Yuma.

    Here is a pic of a Blue Florida:
