Hamata on Ebay currently at 735$!!! and its not even vining!
holy crap congrats on THAT sale if your here LOL
The link seems to be broken.
But MAN. Who in their right mind would pay that much?
Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?
hmmmm double what it was yesterday........at that point i almost think it was a stunt, who in their right mind would spend that much on one......especially when the seller couldnt tell yah what clone or any of that.....
There are some plants who go for nutty prices on there but a lot of sellers play games too... The last last day/hour is when the insane biding starts on most stuff. Some sellers are crappy though and won't sell the item at a low price, they cancel the auction just before it ends if there's no huge bids on it. Then they post it again the next day.
I nearly won an Aztekium hintonii for $15 but the seller canceled the auction and re-posted it the next day, same ad same pic/plant. I didn't know you could do that... He allowed the sale to go through when someone bought it for $52. You can bet I won't bother to bid on that guys stuff again.
High bids isn't proof of someone fooling around, I got $800 or something from a old 1960's tattoo machine that still worked. Some kinda "tattoo museum" in Philadelphia bought it . But I think users need to be aware of some of the games sellers play.
The thing about the little cactus was that he somehow got ebay themselves to end the auction saying "this auction is against ebay rules" but Aztekium is totally legal to have (just rare, small and painfully slow growing) and it was up again the next day. The sale was successfully completed the next week (I did check).
Ah well, I don't NEED more plants anyway until I get a new shelf built.
