    That is very weird. I don't think he'll get his $5000 for them though.

    At least no one is placing any bids! At least they better not!! I wonder what will happen to the plants anyhow, whether he gets money or not?

    The photo clearly shows a plant in the wild.

    Most likely, the plants are wild harvested.

    The question is, whether he is poaching, harvesting from private land where he is either the owner, or has permission, or are being rescued from a construction site.

    I've emailed ebay. They generally take off such items to avoid recriminations involving themselves.

    The lack of any real information where such a large number of plants came from is suspicious. A legitimate seller would make the source clear.
    If it is legal then it's the seller's own fault for not making it obvious they aren't poached.

    He might be someone who bought seeds in another eBay auction thinking he found a way to make easy money.
