Ken, I did not know anyone was doing research on the effects of buying off eBay on plant growth. Can you send us some links to these studies?
I have had aoids sit for 2 years without breaking dormancy,and they are still very healthy mature plants. Some of these were from the IAS sale and some are growing wild on my farm in KY. I think it is mostly a result of environmental conditions. Like lack of rain or the tubers being disturbed during the vegetative growth cycle, as most wild collected specimens are subject to. Any info would be appreciated.
Thanks, Garland Bird
