You purchased what should have been a type of Venus Flytrap and ended up with a Celosia?
Hmmm, maybe you are entitled to a refund/replacement from your eBay seller.

Boy, I'll say! Celosia are pretty much a dime a dozen. Blinking so to speak.

Thank You! I guess you're right... Sadly it took several weeks to bloom, so I can't get a refund anymore... But I'll buy again from a more trustworthy seller :D

I think you should still contact the seller and let them know of your experience and disappointment in not getting what you paid for!

I agree , and if they don't make it right, give a bad review. When buying anything on E-bay only buy from "trusted" sellers.
