    Is yours the plant from Jeremiah that sold for $156 a few days ago?

    Do you know who won those Attenboroughii that he also auctioned off?

    Getting grown plants is a different thing entirely from buying seed. Mature plants are hard to fake and the majority of sellers on ebay do sell legitimate plants. Seeds, on the other hand are very easy to substitute and take years to become big enough for the buyer to realize something is wrong.

    Exactly. What really annoys me is that people give these sellers great reviews, when in fact all they are giving feedback for is the SERVICE, not the PRODUCT. I'm sure many buyers wouldn't be in such a hurry to put their stamp of approval on these sellers if they knew many (most?) of their seed purchases were mislabeled, either intentionally or through ineptitude. I know I'd be very annoyed to invest 3-5 years in raising a Nepenthes from seed only to find out I did not in fact raise N. attenboroughii, but yet another swarm of N. maxima (which is what you'll get most of the time). These sellers do not deserve five star feedback for selling you a fraudulent item.

    Does anyone else have plants from Jeremiah? My aristo seems to be the real thing, and came in looking very healthy. So I would give Jeremiah a 10/10 for aristolochioides goodness.

    Jeremiah is a different league of grower and his trustworthiness is beyond scrutiny. This thread is about eBay seed sellers. I think it would be best to segregate discussion of plants sourced from Mr. Harris to its own thread.
