    Does this make me greedy?

    i am paying for a seedgrown N. Hamata
    and before i found the seedgrown Hamata, i was offered a TC one from a member on another forum.
    Apparently, buying the seedgrown one, and taking up the guy on the offer, is greedy to some people, but why would i turn down an offer for a larger plant, when the one i am getting is about the size of a quarter? It gives me variety, and it gives me a plant to look at while im watching my baby grow. Big deal if i taking up someone on another offer imo.

    Why would that make you greedy? You're only getting two hamatas, while some people have a lot more.

    I dont want any confusion.

    the person who he's speaking of is me. and I dont think my PM to you was rude...

    if you dont think its a problem why post a thread? do you just want back up or something?

    I was merely inquiring...

    I appreciate your ability to discuss this with me... and by that I mean your lack thereof.

    I dont need to remain anonymous I'm a big boy and I'm okay with talking right out in the open I just thought I'd PM you out of courtesy.

    I said I'd understand I was just asking.


    way to go sk?

    Cmm calling someone greedy because they want viriety is rude. I would not want all my eggs in one basket either and would like to have several in hopes of getting a male and female. I don't have a hamata yet but I am not going to hate on Kris because he is getting two. Now I don't know what was said, but if the word greedy was used it was rude.

    Hey sk,
    just saw your CPUK post involving your picking up a 2nd hamata from XXXX, just wondering whats provoking you to get a 2nd when you've already recieved a seed grown?

    dont you think its just a weeeee bit "greedy"?

    sounds bad I understand,
    its just that there are more experienced growers who are unable to get even one,

    I understand its your choice to take whatever you want so by all means grab em up, I just wanted to say that it kind of seems a bit unreasonable ya know?

    I understand its hard to pass up a hamata... so maybe thats the driving force. just saying there were alot of people who dont have one who would have enjoyed recieving one when you already have one... if you were in their position wouldnt you feel the same way?

    sorry I know its imposing and probably even slightly rude.
    just didnt think it was fair for me to think it and not let you know.

    Chris






    that was my PM I didnt mean for it to be " rude " and I acknowledged it may sound that way I had all intent of it being a polite conversation, and a private one at that...

    its all good guys

    well you were the one who divulged the source. He was just making sure he was not the only one who thought it was rude. Personally I would have thought the same thing.

    Hamata from what I hear is an easy plant to grow if the conditions are right, and the name of the game is being in the right place at the right time. Also there are plenty of opportunity for others to get a hold of these plants if they want to buy them. No one is keeping the more experienced growers from obtaining them but themselves. And Hamata is not THAT rare of a plant. It has been in TC several times and many more are coming out of TC too.

    Does this really need an argument?
