Very well said!, I agree with you 100% 
On ebay we are marketing to sell a item and get it noticed, not to rip anyone off,

A plant that grows an unusually large, sometimes grotesque, sometimes phallic, most times very beautiful inflorescence....with a solitary umbrella like leaf that can get as tall or taller than a man.....that is by most people's standards bizarre.  Seems like adding bizarre or rare in front of a rather uncommon, unusual or out of the norm plant's name is a marketing technique that works rather well and doesnt fool anyone.  As long as the plant being marketed is the plant you get I dont see a problem with it.
