Seriously! It just gets worse!

Come on, this is looking more and more like you're just throwing a name on a plant trying to sell it to some unsuspecting buyer.  

Are you buying these from a local wholesaler and simply throwing any name on it that comes to mind?  Seriously!  This is bad business, is deceitful and is a practice you should not engage in!

Rob's Fiddle Faddle (7431) 10/06/1990 (R. Robinson) Semidouble rose-pink. Dark green, pointed, hairy, serrated/red back. Semiminiature.


I don't see anything about crown variegated foliage in this description from the hybridizer.  Do you?

Versus what it should look like...

True Blooming - You Be The Judge!

I don't know what it is with this particular eBay seller but they seem to have more than their fair share of auctions offering plants which are either not blooming true or are mislabeled.

I like to give folks the benefit of the doubt, but take a look at this - how obvious can it be that the plant they're selling as Playful Spectrum (P. Sorano) Single-semidouble white fluted star/blue fantasy, wide lavender-pink band. Medium green. Standard, is not Playful Spectrum?
