  Re: [Aroid-l] Import Plants from China
From: Steve Marak <samarak at gizmoworks.com> on 2017.03.22 at 21:59:01


My experience, quite a while back (late 90s?), was like Don's and Bonaventure's, and that's what I heard from others also.

There have also been several reports of someone hacking one of Chen Yi's old email accounts or web pages and using it to scam people - requesting money up front (which I don't think the real Chen Yi ever did, as best I recall) and of course no plants ever arrived.

All that said, hope springs eternal, fools rush in, and if someone was to find the REAL Chen Yi and was willing to manage the import order and asked me, I'd probably still jump in, knowing that half of what I got would be misidentified. As Forrest Gump said, plant imports are like a box of chocolates ...

Re: [Aroid-l] Import Plants from China Hi David,
Bonaventure Magrys and I have ordered from Chen Yi in the past and, in addition from I?ve heard from others, the proper identification of their items leaves much to be desired. ?I?d be interested to hear if others have had the same experience.

?I am in receipt of an email and plant list from a Chen Yi in China, which includes some interesting Aroids, etc. ?Although I will probably be collecting Aroids on the day of my death am not in sufficient health to put together an order for this.

If someone will take this over, I will gladly send the information I have received to them
