I think those of us who have
tried to find out who the seller is changed our opinion as to this being
"hype" once more facts came to light. The biggest problem
appears to be the seller was new to eBay and eBay sellers are notorious for
claiming something is "rare" or "new" or some other
descriptive term when it can often be bought almost anywhere. The black
"waroc" may go through the roof but that's the nature of eBay.
If people want it the price will rise. As for the A. regale, it
was pointed out to me the photo had a man standing behind the leaf that makes
the leaf appear quite large. I had to stare at it awhile to see it for
myself. And as most of you read, Betsy pointed out it is possible for A.
regale to grow a 6 foot leaf. I just have not been able to find
anything in my literature that states that but Betsy has been to Peru and
seen the plant in the natural state. Now I'm waiting for mine to get that
