I would inherently say no just based on how many people I've seen get ripped off. This seller does have a high positive feedback rating and of their 4 negatives in the past 12 months, 3 are not complaining about fake seeds and 1 I can't read. But I wonder how many people leave feedback before their seeds grow old enough to identify if it really is the correct plant?

On a side note, don't assume that sellers in Europe, Canada, and the US are legitimate. There's one guy from Spain who's been selling expired Nepenthes seeds (frequently labeled as crosses between two extremely rare species) for years, and lately he's been falsely listing them as being located in the United States. There are domestic scammers too.

I entered a giveaway from him and received over 300 seeds, all were really nice and one pack was half black widow. It seems he can ship seeds to Canada (I live in Canada) but I would ask him because he may have just made an exception.
