Bought some really cheap divisions of Chinese cymbidiums from the Silent Seed on eBay and am happy with my purchase. Will surely order again if I see anything I want. Deserves a thumbs up.

Plants were infested with Mealybugs. Ask for some compensation. I felt the burden was placed on "what I did wrong" rather than satisfaction of the customer. I will not buy from this company again. No real satisfaction.

The seller wanted to charge me shipping separately for multiple plants. In addition he tried to charge with with his fee involved with Paypal.

Hello,
I am sorry that you chose not to work this out with me privately.
I am not sure what you mean by the shipping, or the paypal fee - All I charged you was one flat shipping fee, and nothing more.
I understand you may be upset, but it would have been much better to discuss this with me directly - I would have been happy to help you out.
In fact, I'm still happy to - but it does take timely communication. It's been a few months since I last heard from you.
Thanks, Jude

EXCELLENT! I ordered a variegated Mandarin Duck Clivia. It is a very nice plant with nice deep colors. It arrived in good condition and safely packaged. It is really growing and I'm very pleased with my purchase! A+++ to this seller!! Being new to this website, I want to say "thank you" for all of the help you gave me to complete my transaction, and now my long over-due feedback! :) I highly recommend this seller, and would not hesitate to make any purchase in the future! Thank you again!! :)

I ordered Crinum Lilies from Duncanju (The Silent Seed) and was very pleased. One in particular was just amazing. She worked with me on payment and payment method. The bulbs were all nice with roots. They were shipped in a postal box with plenty of packing material to keep them safe. I wouldn't hesitate to buy from her again and hope to do so in the future.

I ordered a titan arum tuber from platteborze123 (The Silent Seed) on ebay.When I got it I was horrified. It was a used elder beerman box that had been crushed. The plant looked as if it had been frozen, the leaf died. Well into 2 weeks the tuber started to rot. an email was sent to the seller and he said send it back for a replacement. I told him that due to the unethical packaging (some ribbon and wrapping paper) and damage to the tuber I did not want to get a credit because I didn't want anything else from him. So ebay went in my favor, i'm sending the rotted bulb back for a refund of 62.99. I don't think anyone who runs a plant business would be sending tender tropicals in the dead of winter as titan arums DON"T survive temps under 50*F and definately not a freeze. I found this out after researching info on a botanical garden site.

On Jan 19, 2011 4:44 PM, The Silent Seed responded with:

Sir,
I am sorry that this proved to be a difficult transaction. My auction clearly states to return the tuber for me to offer a refund/replacement. I'm not sure why you refused to do this, until Ebay directed you to do so.
All you had to do, was to return the tuber, and it would have been taken care of. Unfortunately you are the first, and only, person to have had any issues with my TItan Arums.
Good luck to you.
On January 19th, 2011, duncanju added the following:

Again, I'm not sure why you didn't return the tuber immediately upon discovering any trouble, as indicated in my Ebay auction. I would have happily refunded your money with no further issue.


On Jan 31, 2011 11:51 AM, The Silent Seed added:

UPDATE: The tuber was finally returned, and is now happily sending up a new leaf.
