    Thank you for providing this info Mike.

    Given what Mike posted I am inclined to agree with the prior posts that it is a misspelling of "guarantee" by someone who does not speak English as their first language.

    Additionally, given how this person operates I am not almost certain this is the same person who did the eBay auction for Nep. edwardsiana seed a while back. A little more information so everyone understands my logic.

    When the eBay auction ended, a friend of mine contacted the seller to see if he might have some spare seed available for a second chance offer. My friend was told that indeed there was some more seed available and it could be had for the price my friend had initially bid. My friend sent the money and never heard from the guy again. And the user name that seller was using is no longer on eBay...

    I think it is unfortunate but our hobby has finally hit the point where scammers have learned they can make some good money playing people. I have heard a million stories like this in my other hobby, once someone sees a chance at easy money they begin to prey on legit members of the hobby.

    Mike, I am sorry you got sucked into this, it is hard to see a scammer for what they are sometimes. I do not think anyone blames you and if they do then tell them to bring it to me or another Mod and we will set them straight. Your intentions were good, I know that and I am sure others do too.

    I would like to see this as well, and not just with Nep. edwardsiana


    If it could be produced in quantities similar to Rajah it would force the price down and make collecting plants and seed from the wild less lucrative and hopefully not worth the time.

    Of course I know nothing about TC or the success rate of eddys. But it is a thought.
    And a good thought it is. Unfortunately Nep. edwardsiana is at the opposite end of the spectra from rajah when it comes to TC. It is very finicky and difficult to clone out. So it will take time. But if the people who are currently growing it do unite and are willing to add some more material to the pool then I am sure a favorable outcome will happen some day.

    The problem here is this seems to take folks who have truly altruistic motives.

    If I have one of the only chunks of gold in the world & it's now worth $1 million (and appreciating every day), why would I tell people where they can find more? My $1 million would depreciate rapidly as the supply increased ...
    All the best,

    For the reason (Greed) that one would want to keep it themselves will be the same reason it will be brought to the masses. I just don't want to see a lovely species brought to extinction from poaching in the process... again due to greed.
