Don't know about you guys, but I've ordered a few lots of random semps on ebay. Both of these lots are of unnamed varieties...

One lot was from a seller blomma2: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=400203170... here is the auction.

I have really liked her so far. She is very knowledgeable and sweet. I can hardly wait to get the plants, I'm pretty sure she said she shipped them already.

The next lot was from korina-2009: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320671725...

I did email this person to see when they would be shipped and she kind of blew me off, saying it was in the auction that it was a presale (which I did read, however her planting time and my planting time are apparently different). Didn't appreciate her tone on the reply to my fairly innocuous inquiry. (Sorry if you are a member here... but, not good business.)

I'll post pics when the plants arrive from each.....

I wonder if Kat knows korina-2009 is using her photo to promote sells? Whistling

Be careful with ebay sellers ... I have received improperly named plants. Thumbs down

Both of these lots are for unnamed plants. They will make nice fillers. Plus I enjoy the excitement of seeing what they might turn into.

As for photo copyright infringement... not good!

Linda, did you send the link to Kat?

There have been some problems with ebay sellers. There are some good ones (blomma is over in DG and knows her plants) and then there are some really dishonest ones.
If Korina is not acting very friendly I would back away from the sale. If she is using some ones photos without permission that would do it for me. She definitely is using some of Kat's photos, just went and looked. Maybe she got permission? All of her 27 Feedbacks are from 2009. Not a good sign.

I don't know Kat or I would tell her myself! As a photographer I'm not a fan of copyright infringement.

As for the ebay sale from Korina-2009. I purchased this a few weeks ago when it was just a $10 auction, and I used paypal so if she stiffs me I'll get my money back. I certainly won't be recommending her or sending her any business!!

But the sale by Lilly (blomma2) however, has been great!! Check out the plants she sent... and they are all in little root diapers like little babies! Lovey dubby

I sent her an email Linda. Thanks for the heads up. I didn't look down the page until you mentioned her photos being used.

Terri, this is a great thread for us all to learn who the reputable ebay sellers are for semps and sedum. Hope more people post with their experiences on ebay. Thumbs up

I added your above photo to your first post so it will show a thumbnail in the list of threads. Want to make sure people can find this one. Thumbs up

Well the notice I got for packages Lovey dubby said there were 2! So I am hopeful that one of them is from her. I have not received any communication from her about them. I meant to email her yesterday but was too tired from planting all the new babies!

One step at a time is my favorite motto. I always trip if I try two or more steps at one time. Rolling on the floor laughing

Wow, two packages. Come Mon Terri is going to have a party. It must be her birthday, or maybe Christmas come early?

Thanks for the interesting information.
I think I looked at plants once on ebay but didn't do anything about it. I will look for blooma2.
