    He does say it is yescarnivorousfarm but I am wanting more than just someone who has as many posts on here as they have warning messages about this seed seller. I appreciate the warning but need more. I have as much reason to believe both sides of the story at this point.

    And full disclosure, I saw the seller and was interested in getting some seed from them already.

It seems to me the just like popping in stirring the pot and sit back and watch. Just popping in enough to keep it fresh. At this point, if they don't post something legit. I'm going to ignore everything they post.
    Ahhh yeah okay I missed this message. Well good to know. I smelled a pot stirrer glad I am okay to get some seeds from this person. I wanted them.

    Well, either way, I'm very sketchy about buying flebay seeds. There are legit sellers on there but I don't know who is. There are a few plant sellers on there I get stuff from. Nice plants good prices but there small.

    When looking for seeds on eBay I follow a few easy guidelines for myself. (e.g. Where does the plant grow that produces the seeds for sale, is the seller in that country/location? Because if not I doubt they are traveling by plane or far by any means for a couple bucks worth of seeds.)( look for consistency in photos, watermarks, etc, description, do they know what they are talking about, ask for photos of source plant etc etc etc. or are you buying "nepenthes, bonsai, balcony, giant clip raidiation protection plant seeds"? I mean we all know to steer clear of that I hope. I have ordered many seeds from many people online as they are inexpensive and I figure it's worth a shot fake or not. After obviously doing my due diligence to determine to the best of my ability that they most likely aren't wild collected. With that being said, I have never been disappointed in a U.S. based seller (obviously not collecting nep seed in the wild.) seeds from Europe have also been legit just with much less germination (assuming travel, etc,etc) from Indonesia/Asia. I have received seeds that I frankly have no idea if they were legit or not, no germination.
    This is my experience. Uncut. If you are thinking any more into than this you should just play it safe and buy from those you know/ been provided solid feedback.

    he has great reviews and im only thinking into it because hes offering species that otherwise cant be found. I am fine if they arent legit and i lost out on a little money but if they are being taken from very protected plants in wild i want nothing to do with him. Mine are at US customs in New York now so too late to go back now

    Pretty much all Nepenthes seeds on eBay are wild collected. There's a number of regular seed collectors in Indonesia and Malaysia who supply various sellers like Yescarnivorousfarm, which is based on South Korea.

    That's a bold claim haha but I have a bad feeling your probably right on point. I stopped purchasing seeds from eBay when I began using the ICPS bank.
