Well I knew this was gonna start as soon as people started seeing any plant selling for hundreds &  hundreds of dollars a pop on ebay.As then the market gets flooded with all kinds of look alike plants  ,nearly perfect knockoffs & downright fraud  items ,mislabeled plants , stolen photo’s , all this going to do is hurt real  Quality  Ariod plant sellers like IAS members & others on Ebay . As a long time plant collector I’ve seen this happen many times before. The same thing happened in the succulent/cactus market ,then the African fat tree market , & I see it’s happened also in the Japanese Maple market , not to mention Orchids ,all these markets on ebay went way up fast, people got burnt then the bottom falls out due to everyone telling anyone & everyone that is all bad on Ebay . The New Fashion’s Anthuriums  !  We  are gonna take a hit fast & hard  soo look out all . We seen it coming..  To all who sell quality plants on Ebay be fair, be honest & be upfront but what goes up must come down , with the market rising soo fast it’s gonna fall hard .soo plz prepare as best you can or you might find yourself going to heck in a hand basket ..      Rare Anthurium seeds from Turkey ??  shipped for a dollar ?

 A disclaimer from me as I do sell parts of my propagations of plants from my collection on Ebay  but I do not sell anthuriums Or rare philo’s , I never sell seeds of anything .. I  just auction  the more common variegates of philo’s ,succulents, variegated agaves, African euphorbias  ,cacti ,aloes , trees  & used  car parts off the car I’m modifying . the cash this generates gives me a cash flow so that I can buy rare plants from other IAS members & pay for my trips to the Miami IAS show & sale , as I’m just a postal employee with a plant addiction  ,that I’m very proud to say I am a member of a Great IAS  organization ..

Well....we all knew it couldn't last. It looks like someone is selling seeds of several rare Anthurium species on ebay. Of course using stolen images from Arden and Neil Carrol.


It looks like she went from selling rose seeds to suddenly having several VERY rare Anthurium species virtually overnight....Ahh well, let the buyer beware.
