Botanica use Century 2 nibs, but without the intricate engraving.

You may have to special order from Cross to get a Century 2 nib unit with a specific Botanica engraving which in my opinion does not look as nice as the flourished engraving of the Century 2 nib.

ipenstore offers what they describe as "Genuine Cross replacement nib and front section for Century II and Botanica series fountain pens."  Currently $75 for rhodium plated 18k gold. 

"They come as a boon and a blessing to men, 
the Pickwick, the Owl and the Waverley Pen."
