    Yeah, obtaining U. quelchii from anyone in the US is pretty much an impossibility unless it's from a handful of folks - definitely forget anyone on Ebay selling it, no matter what they tell you. Those sellers have been on this forum trying to defend their U. tricolor they've sold to us all as U. quelchii. One Ebayer is often seen selling U. tricolor for $40 because it's labeled erroneously as U. quelchii!

    I suspect there are more lurkers around who are growing it than we know (& no, I don't know this for a fact but I keep finding lurkers growing other CP's...) .

    Glider - It sounds like you haven't heard of our tribulations with U. tricolor being passed off as U. quelchii. For a laugh - here.
    All the best,

    One of the erroneous "U. quelchii" sellers is now selling the desirable "U. geminiloba" but the photo in the ad looks similar gliders pics above so BE CAREFUL it probably isn't what it's being sold as - I mean there is a possibility but I'm certainly not willing to place a $40 bet on another clump of U. tricolor.

    From the bad photo up it "may" be the real thing, its very hard to tell given the photo. The leaf on the right side with the damaged pot rail is the correct shape. Why post a listing for $40 and then put up such a bad pic...
