    Has anyone heard of this Nursery?

    Hi guys. I am curious to know if any of you guys ever heard of this Nursery. The guy whom I'm supposed to get eddy seeds from says they were collected from Garantea Nursery from Australia. I cant find any records of this Nursery.

    This is how I found him.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Carnivorous-Plan...3%3A2|294%3A50

    Here are the messages he sent me.

    Dear rarenepenthesforeveryone,

    I sent to seedling lab for make in flask
    now i have only 500 seeds i sell i set is 30 seeds

    what do you think ?
    thank you

    - o_osabai
    This was my last message from him. He hasn't contacted me since. Luckily I haven't payed him yet. He wont respond to my requests of an invoice. There's something strange about him. I want to keep you fellow growers aware of him before spending $$$$ his way.

    So if this doesn't happen with him, I want to make a formal apology to anyone who got as excited as me about the plant. I am just as disappointed about this as you. Please don't let this affect our future trade relations, etc..

    Best regards

    Mike

    I cant seem to find that nursery, the Google search asks me did you mean guaranteed nursery. I agree with it probably meaning a guaranteed Nursery versus Garantea. But then that means he's not telling me which exact nursery. Which brings it back to the possibility that if he really does have eddy seed, they are most likely poached. And that he realizes he has been caught or something.

    Perhaps he wanted to say 'guaranteed that they were colelcted from a nursery'' ? no idea, if he won't respond then don't pay him, forget about it.

    any eddy seeds were most definetly not nursery grown. So that part he is almost 100% lying to you. However, that does not mean they werent legaly collected, as there are ways (all be them hard to come by) to get permits and such.

    Good luck, and i for one will not hold it agaisnt you in the least if it falls through, i rather feel very bad for you.

    thank you Frankie and others for your understanding. If this guy is a fraud, I got lucky and dodged a bullet here, because I haven't been able to send him payment yet. So the most I'm out is the excitement and the possible trust towards him. Its all good though. I just know to avoid this guy.

    Nepenthes101... I understand your excitement. I had to read your post twice and check the date (nope... wasn't April 1).

    Pyro made a pretty good explaination of why he thinks they are either not legit, or if they are are most likely poached. I would love to have an eddy, but not at that cost.

    I would like to see those who do have mature eddys unite for the cause of conservation and donate some material for the purpose of TC. 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.
