    and the tap water there in Cali is probably hard as hell, i know Bella said his tapwater was 300-400 ppm in NoCal, cant imagine its much better anywhere else.
    plus, 50 bareroot plants isnt that many :\
    Eh, I suppose.
    Just wanted to bring it to attention in case it really is a scam.

    They aren't poachers, because the plants are mostly all hybrids, but still fishy nonetheless.

    Has anyone had a mass amount of Sarrs stolen from them? lol
    Look at the listing -- it says 'the heart of Sonoma County' as the location. That would be where Peter's nursery is. I have been to Peter's nursery a few times and the pots that the drought plants are planted are look much like the ones he uses.

    So ... I see three possibilities
    1) Peter is selling some plants via ebay
    2) Someone who buys from Peter is selling plants
    C) Someone who steals from Peter is selling plants.

    Eliminate #1. Contacting Peter has shown that he has no EBay account.

    I would not accuse Peter D'Amato of doing anything in violation of CITES or any other conservation organization. I have never known him to be anything but above-board over the years and a passionate stickler for detail -- when it comes to conservation issues.

    As far as plastic pots looking familiar, those that Caifornia Carnivores stocks are among the most common and popular types used by commercial nurseries; and I and many others purchase those by the dozens from wholesalers or online. In fact, the local garden centers in SF also stock them by the hundreds.

    The location given is also meaningless. Sonoma County stretches North as far as Cloverdale and South to the Petaluma area -- hundreds of square miles. "The Heart of Sonoma" is simply an expression; there are those on eBay who simply list their locations as "North America" . . .
