Resurrecting an old thread...

RARE PENIOCEREUS GREGGII REAL QUEEN OF THE NIGHT ARIZONA MEXICO SUCCULANT CACTUS

$23.50. Seriously? A cactus that size should go for less than 10 bucks most places.

Hey, keep those prices up! I've got a dozen or more almost that size that I grew from seed. May have got the seed from you come to think of it. Anyway, I can now boast about my new-found assets! Woo hoo - I'm rich, I'm rich, I'm rich! :lol:

Well, hard to believe, but somebody bought it. I guess when you gotta have it, you gotta have it.

Good question about the syringes. Diabetic cat? The willys are from a different seller...in Thailand. They are rare in the U.S. if you think about it. How many nurseries have you gone to where they stock LWs?

My take on eBay buys is there some "karmic" relationship with buyer :-k I used it a lot for many years (much less in last 4-5yrs), mostly Tibetan Buddhist artifacts or gems & crystals & I got nothing but the best service, products, & sellers! Reminds me very much of people on CF :D Would always give personal feedback, usually ask a question or 2 before bid. Frequently developed a realationship with several buys over time. Never burned! Only rarely slightly less than totally satisfied! Hear the eBay world has changed, but memories still very positive!

Yeaah, i've bought a lot of cacti off ebay and if you know what you're looking for and have an eye for quality, then you can get some really nice plants at good prices! :)
