Re: [Aroid-l] Import Plants from China

If an order does materialize, I might be interested in participating. The
opportunity to acquire some unusual aroids is appealing, as is the
roulette/Forrest Gump component of the endeavor.

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 ...

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
