Misrepresentation of plant material occurred long before Ebay was dreamed of.

In 1977, after a two year search, I purchased a tuber of Amorphophallus 
titanum from a firm in Cocoa Beach Florida.

It cost $2.50.

When it bloomed many years later I discovered that it was a very rare 
subspecies of titanum.

It had a flower that exactly mimicked Amorphophallus paeonifolius.

I still have that original plant.  If anyone wants a tuber I can make them 
available for $200.00.
