Hi again and a big thank you to you all for the support. Yes.... why .... I guess I wanted to try something else. I should have googled the vendors though. At the time they looked ok to me. They have lots of good reviews. This , however, is due to the following: by the time you discover they lied in the ebay listing, it is too late to place a complaint or a negative review.Why buy plants on eBay at all? There are many reputable orchid sellers. Newbies do your research and ask
an ST member BEFORE you buy.
Yes, they are! There are Dutch vendors, for example.Sorry to hear of your problems.
Angela, there are many reputable vendors on eBay. You just have to know who they are in your particular neck of the woods.
Oh my goodness, Percival, you were scammed really bad!. I only bought one or two plants from each of the three vendors, noticed the poor condition they arrived in, the bad communication with the vendors, etc. and was out there. phew... . I was lucky after all.Check out the list. I bought these plants under the names of the 3 sellers mentioned, none of which are the plants they were sold to! The listed plants (almost without exception) are still sold today.
By the way... can somebody here identify what i did receive, this little orange fellow? I enclose a picture. At first I thought it was a Guarianthe aurantiaca, but now I think it is something different. The aurantiaca ( at least the ones I have!) do not have that frilly lip. Any ideas?
Many thanks in advance and wish you all a very nice day!
