A couple of things here. First of all it is not true for all sections of
the US that "big lush healthy rhizomes rot far quicker than the smaller
drier sources."

And I think the archives reflect that. There are too many environments
to make such broad claims.

eBAy does not sell anything. Individuals use the eBay service.

And the complaint was that the individual selling the rhizomes said
"smaller, leaner and dryer rhizomes better withstand extreme weather."

Which I think is a groundless claim. For one thing, there are all sorts
of extreme weather environments.
