People with deep pockets Waste money

by neville3970 » Mon Mar 11, 2019 11:43 am

two people selling two examples of Sarracnia peaches and cream on ebay
One sold for £21 due to having one crown
The other one sold by seller prometheusj220 who had posted picture of is plant on forums the plant he sold had 3 crowns sold for £175.00
Why not save money and buy the cheapest and watch it grow
I have uploaded photos of my plant which I bought which only had one crown it now has 5 crowns.. my pictures were taken in 2015 my plant now is in a 6.5 litre plant pot
Plant stands 18"+ in height and lid 6"+
Plant as now coloured last year with heat wave we had in the uk

Some people get so excited that they don't think 'is this reasonable'? The answer is often no. Research, research, research. Speaking of research, I need seeds.

higher price person seems to sell more higher price plants regularly, they also have better descriptions of their auctions IMHO, coupled with if they sell/trade regularly and post their plants around vs a random person just selling a couple plants on ebay

makes sense to me, we don't buy very expensive plants at all though but i can see why someone might like the 3 crown mother plant vs the other all things considered. sometimes "who" is selling an item makes as much difference as the price

That’s what you get with auctions. It’s all about who is bidding and how bad they want it. If they are willing to pay for it then it is not a waste of money.
