 I guess by the most recent posts that my post about Ebay does not apply to this thread .. BUT it is still true that a Buyer must beware & There are  some real finds are on Ebay that are mistakenly ID’ed by sellers …. .. I guess the “ mistaken “ Identity theft was the seller not the plant   That was a nice looking tuber by the way !!  Mike

Sometimes the Ebay auctions  that are  ID’ed wrong can be quite a find !!  more than once I’ve got a very Rare plant on Ebay that was not what the plant was as titled . plants worth hundreds of dollars I got for less the 10 bucks … When you are on  Ebay  it’s buyer beware !..........  BUT there are Some Ebay sellers that Id plants wrong just to make newbies think the plant is new & rare !  Mike Mahan

ebay plant titles are often HORRIBLY WRONG and if you write to the seller you may get NOTHING. even if you write with kind politeness and information and footnotes. alas.
