    Usually when plants are given serial numbers, it means the grower has been propagating it and distributing clones. I can understand you being upset that it's not what you expected. However, I don't think it's really anything to fret over, unless you paid a premium for it on the basis that it would be unique and you would have exclusive access to propagating it.

    PS - Er, OK, you might be a little more justified in your indignance. Still, it's a step up from just having a common clone from one of the major distributors.

    It appears to be a cutting to me. I'm not well versed in what seed grown root-wads look like, but I would imagine that they would not look like that. Also, the growth tip being chopped really points to it being a cutting.

    I would question the seller heavily.

    #1: It's a hamata that might be seed-grown. It's not going to be cheap.
    #2: It has roots.

    Regardless, I consider it dishonest advertising to not inform customers that what they are bidding on is actually a cutting of a seed grown plant.

    #1: It was advertised as seed-grown, but could be and looks very much like a rooted cutting.

    #2: A plant with roots, sadly, should not be a measure of its worth unless it is stated that the plant is an unrooted cutting.

    I mean, really, N. edwardsiana from AW could actually be tissue cultures of a cutting from a seed-grown plant.

    Calling them seed-grown would be dishonest.

    Hard to say. It could be a seed grown plant. One of my Seed grown Dubias that I grow had its main growth tip die and it sprouted a new growth tip and is finally growing well and looks similar to that of your plant in the pics.

    Lets hope for the best my good friend.

    There goes optimism.

    I'm not saying that what the seller did was good, and until we hear word on what the seller says, we can only speculate. Until then, I think that just looking up and seeing a bright side is really all that's left unless he's willing to accept a refund for the plant.

    Either way, I'm interested in seeing how this plays out.

    Look at the bottom of the plant. It's flat ! You can see the cut !
