Ebay biddings are crazy!
In your opinion, do you think that the weakness of "wanting to win" or is it "the anger that someone dares to lift the listed orchid from your fingers for just a few dollars more" that did people in ?
Recently I saw this ebay bidding , for a psychopsis, and thought to myself , the next time a plant comes up, it will be lower than the outrageous 265.00 since the highest bidder already got his plant .
but no , the second listed plant shattered the record of the previous one, and already reached 300.00 with bidding time left .
Any way , a few years ago the alba psychopsis were not rare, they were about 30.00 dollars to 50.00 dollars maximum in the listing of many orchid nurseries, in fact Hausermann orchids had young alba plants for about 15.00 then .
Every ebay bidders should be reminded to play Kenny Roger's song while hitting the "increase Max bid" for personal safety measure.

Usually when I get outbid on eBay I usually don't bid again, though sometimes I do get a little irritated when there's 1 day left to bid and all of a sudden someone bids higher than I do so I'm sure a lot of people actually act upon that and bid again. Sometimes I've bid on plants and end up second guessing myself because I'm running out of room and wish I could take my bid back lol

The remorse feeling and wishing to take a bid back is probably shared by the majority of peoples .
A few times that I changed my mind about the plant , but I bid near the end , like a day before , I spent the whole next day praying that someone would jump in and rescue me .
