The person who is selling the helenae, ChineseGreen, is the same person who sold hangianum a few months back. I'm surprised these auctions haven't been closed yet.
 
Yep... anyone who buys from ChineseGreen can expect a visit from the US Fish and Wildlife sooner or later :)

reminds me of the "all natural angle" vendors try to use when marketing their products.

This sort of thing makes me nuts! It is soooo reminiscent of 19th century patent medicine!

And I want to know, if Cyp. pubecens rhizome is such a miracle cure for insomnia, why are there so many of us having trouble sleeping around here? Huh? one would think this awesome Lady Slipper power (powder?) would transcend....

Someone has clearly watched 'Adaptation' once too many times. :rolleyes:
Not to mention, who's harvesting this? Zach? Go get 'em, Zach! :fight:


(finally a use for that moti!)
