Some of those are nice hybrids  the sci-fi stuff you talk about  ..     I
don't think that is a scam but I've  been wrong  before ... like orchid
hybrids they are a dime a dozen these days . You'll see them soon at your
Local Safeway !!

I have made friends with ebay sellers on the basis of a question, 
which may not have led to any bidding or purchase.

eBay seems to be a bit tighter than it was years ago. Because I am 
the Sansevieria Cultivar Name Police, I often write to sellers to 
tell them, if i know it, what I think is the real name of their 
plants. So far this has not resulted in any death threats, for which 
I am thankful, and it may have resulted in one or two people taking 
off a bad name. my contribution to taxonomy is the REMOVAL of names, 
rather than the bestowing of names.

I did look up Anthurium yesterday and saw photos of inflorescences 
which i have never seen the like in any plant in the real world. sci 
fi colours.
