    Apparently I'm Selling Rafflesiana Seed

    A few weeks ago, I posted this photo of N. rafflesiana



    I never thought it would turn up on an ebay listing selling raff seeds from Mannheim Germany!

    The same guy stole my photo as well. Message him and demand he take it down. I already reported him once. Funny enough its on the exact same item.

    I'm more interested to know if your plant is the "Nepenthes rafflesiana green var. squat" the seller is representing it to be.

    well before he was using this image of mine to represent the green var. squat and this is a giant form of N. rafflesiana I honestly think he's just choosing his favorite picture from CP Photofinder and using those

    I recognize that photo from ebay! Considering that none of the photos are of his own cultivated plants, I wouldn't be surprised if those seeds aren't even from nepenthes.

    I call this plant N. rafflesiana "typical". My mental image of a green raff is entirely pale green with no spots or stripes.

    On the positive side, this whole thing has put me in raff collection mode. It's such a variable species!

    if its raffs you seek you should talk to Sundrew, he has one of the best raff collections in the US I think.

    I actually traded a cutting from the above raff with him over summer. Good idea, I will see what else he has.

    Don't waste your time negotiating with someone who repeatedly steals other people's photos to flog stuff on eBay; they KNOW they are doing something wrong and they dont care. Nine times out of ten they wont get caught, so there is little incentive to do the right thing. Instead, simply go direct to filing DMCA forms with eBay to have the photo taken down. The bonus is that the merchants gets a strike against them from eBay, and so you will have some meaningful impact on their behavior, since there is suddenly disincentive to continue stealing photos. Been there, dealt with this before.
