Yes and thank you.  I too have thought about expanding my collection and have found practices on EBay a bit on the questionable side the way things are represented.  If you have any suggestions to assist you in this matter please let me know GREGORY L DORST

As much as I would hate to see you subjected to constant abuse, I just want to encourage you to keep writing sellers who are deliberately misrepresenting their wares on E-Bay.  Hopefully, if enough people call them on it, they'll think twice before trying it again in the future.  As you mentioned, lots of novices try to expand their collections using E-Bay - so you're doing a real public service when you go after the folks who are blatantly ripping buyers off.

Yes, and have gotten cussed out more than I can count!  Here is an example: "Hi, I am glad to see you selling (such and such) on ebay and hope you do well, but (such and such) is not correctly named and the true botanical name is: (such and such) Just thought you would like to know so that you can keep up your good feedback."
 
Here is what I usually get back: " Mind your own (&(*&^(&%&^% business!"

A question. do any of you ever write a gentle note to a seller who is offering perhaps a wrongly named plant which is not rare, at a big opening price, and tell them the TRUTH?  i know I DO!
