LMFAO I was gonna say something about the name but I chose not to. I give people credit for dealing with Doomsday hahahaha
Ron I always respect your step back and look at the big picture approach. The issue is, only him and I saw the private emails. I don't trust him to give a refund. Seems like that type of person from his attitude from jump street. Only plant I was worried about was vent x ham. Others are bad yes but nothing I cannot restore to good health.
Also Ron. If you notice pics of the plants I got were not posted. I started dealing before he edited his post.
I think Ron and Doomsday said it all very well. Why should you, JB, get a refund AND be entitled to keep the plants? And [REDACTED] is offering a full refund as long as you return the plant. Seems fair enough to me.

I have since been in contact with him vie text and will speak with him later today regarding this matter. I took the tones of his emails to be that which he probably isn't. The communications today have been nothing but pleasant.
And just FYI. The email I originally sent to [REDACTED] was mearly to relay the disappointment. It was then after that the situation escalated. As I said I'm sure the tones of the emails came across different than intended. He has some funny emphasis areas in his emails. I never wanted a refund and I even asked if he would trade out the plant. That would entail me sending the plant in question back. ;-) then the emails went down hill and I had to step away to chill. He offered his number and I contacted him.
The last thing I want is hard feelings. Not once did I scream I want a refund. I will not go into more details of the emails. I think enough drama has been started.
I agree with ron. Honestly I always ask for pictures before I buy a plant, and if I don't like something in the picture I ask for more to see if I am right or if maybe it's a bad angle (ask Mass :P). That is your responsibility as a smart consumer and buyer. He offered you a full refund for the plants if you send them back. Either take the offer or stop crying.
SSS I'm getting sick of being called the bad guy now. I admitted it was haisty to buy them so quickly, but the rajah I wanted was already bought out from under me I didn't want that to happen to the rest. It is obvious some people are commenting before they read everything. You also don't know the whole ins and outs of the email transactions. Now that is enough. I'm getting angry. So what if it was not how you would have done it. I was trying tp not loose a plant. Forget the fact I probably wanted to.
Mods please lock this thread the issue is resolved.
So you made an entire topic, which the first 3 pages are full of people bashing the guy, and then a few people say it might be your fault and ohh no, lets close this thread.
And nobody is calling you a bad guy. There is a difference between holding some responsibility and being a bad guy.
I never asked him to be bashed. I personally would have not tried to sell these plants. Also I already admired I rushed in buying them. Wanted to show what I received and to make it a leason learned for others to be Leary. Never said don't buy from him. Just giving heads up to get pictures. I never got pictures. And it seemed if I didn't commit to buy right then and there I would loose to others. So in this situation I bought the plants and that was what I got. I was put off by the tone in his emails at first. That is why I posted. Because if he was going to be snippy with me others should know to have all the info. You wouldn't know that cause you didn't finish reading what I posted. I never asked for a refund. Instead I got two emails in caps stating send them all back when the main plant I was talking about was vent x ham. Like I said leason learned. But you want to continue to point out how I am wrong for complaining after he offered a refund. People still need to be careful with anyone.
So i will day it again, I am in contact with [REDACTED] and things are getting fixed.

I don't consider the fact he sold plants looking like that my fault. And I already aired my haste to buy in fear of bring sold out from under me.

Ok please lock and delete this thread if possible. I am keeping all but the vent x ham. It is being shipped back tomorrow with a full refund plus shipping. It was a misunderstanding in emails and Mike was a pleasure to speak with on the phone. I think it is safe to say this is resolved.
Sorry I am late getting to this. We try and avoid public disputes over trades for the very reason outlined in this thread: misunderstandings happen and rarely is it productive to make negative comments about others (especially when they are not members or regular members). I have removed all personally identifiable information.
I'm glad this got resolved.
