Well, Jaie...maybe the 10 million people are wrong? That is pretty scary. Well, I am off to feed my flytrap a T-bone steak now...thanks for help but I think john has a great point. he, he, he, he, he. I'm k\d.
John "The PinHead",
If not O'well another bad joke for the books. Made me laugh anyhow.
Someone should send him a link to http://www.sarracenia.com/faq.html .
yoo, tuyen, did he really say goto ####?
#### if i said something to HELP him and he replied "GOTO ####" i would personally curse and yell and so much other stuff at him, i really hate when your trying to help someone and they just blow you off, it hurts inside, then it makes me (maybe you too) curse and b!@#h at them, it makes me, and i really do it,
Reading the posts here, I think the seller gets the idea (although I doubt they care). So, not wanting to be left out in doing my part to help, I E-mailed the buyer. See below.
This ebay sell has caught the attention of some of my fellow carnivorous plant enthusiasts. I would just like to inform you that if you do purchase this plant you may not want to follow the instuctions that the seller is providing. Your plant will likely die. One of the best sources for info on the Venus Flytrap (and many other types of carnivorous plants) can be found at http://www.sarracenia.com/faq.html . Please do yourself, and the plant, a favor and read the info listed in this link.
Just thought you might appreciate some accurate info. These plants are great fun and if you do decide to $pend the money on it, and give it the propper care you will be very pleased.
I decided against directly saying that the price was WAY too much, because, let's face it, everyone has the right to try make as much money as they can doing the least work possible. And if buyers don't at least do a little homework, well then... I also opted to not mention PFT incase the buyer is actually a secondary ID for the seller who is trying to run up the price.
Anyway, I'll let you know of any responses.
I am very pissed off now about the guy who told me to go to #### , but I think he just said that because he gat a riot of emals from me .
So this is what I got as a response. I just wished that I would have gotten the 'go to ####'. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
i've had more than enough advice // at least 10 e-mails in the lkast 2 days / the care information comes directly w/ my trap supplier!! i'm going tro take the bit about hamburg out of new listings just to stop the e-mails regardin this matter. i've been raising them successfully for several years and i don't think i've lost a one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have not recieved my reply back yet but, ohh patient I will be!
The picture on the auction site has a photo that looks like Gubler's.
I don't think Gubler's was who the care info is from, their site says never to feed proccessed meats like hamburger.
Show him/her/it the site.
I'll bet the info came from the local hrdware store.
This guy is really dumb no wonder he has only one bid right now .
