    Interesting Eddy Conversation on Chatbox

    Hiya Fellow Nep'ers-

    For those of you that are curious, check out the Chatbox archives between 11ish and 12 last night (11/18). I checked it, it starts at the 23:05 mark.

    N. edwardsiana lovers will find it . . . quite entertaining

    I bought a cactus. A week later it died. And I got depressed, because I thought, Damn. I am less nurturing than a desert.

    I saw that too . . .

    I'll believe it when I see it. I have had several empty leads in the last couple of years from reputable people, from whom I have obtained some rare Nepenthes seed; that someone, out of the blue, has access to that seed, would be a feat.

    There is also an ongoing conversation on the CPUK site over bogus N. edwardsiana seed being sold by an online auction house that rhymes with "schmee-hay" by -- as it turns out -- some bored teenage kid in London.

    I have germinated a ****load of Nepenthes seeds over the years and would love to see that particular species distributed . . .

    To be fair, maybe the plant(s) are mislabeled.

    I know the common approach is to call everything Nepenthes Alata or ventrata, but perhaps this particular source went the other direction with his misnomer?

    I have zero knowledge on / about any referenced seed sellers (wanted to get that out of the way up front).

    Selling deliberately mislabeled seed from an impoverished country would seem to be a tremendous opportunity:

    - true identity of seed will not be revealed for years (if it germinates at all)
    - much higher profit than if labeled accurately / many eager buyers willing to take the risk
    - easy to swap online identities once scam is revealed
    All the best,

    Either A- He's trolling.
    or B - The plants are mislabeled like mentioned above. They're probably N. singalana or something, methinks.
