Last year (November) I bought 4 cuttings on Ebay from Dausername1.
I later found out through this forum that this seller was a scammer.
I managed to grow one of the cutting. It was supposed to be a Takoma Violet.
It grew about 3 feet and put out 2 figs which later dropped.

On the forum one member suggested to grow the cutting to determine what was Dausername1 actually selling.
Below are pictures of the plant.

Could you identify the below plant?
I believe that one is not guilty until proven so. And I hope to find out if Dausername1 is really a scammer or not.

Thank you for your expertise.

The crap that the scammer gave you is simply crap. Do with it what you will but go into Ebay and leave feedback to the effect that the seller is a known scammer and has historically defrauded many, many folks by selling named and desirable varieties and sending unknown aged cuttings that rot. Do not pay any attention to emails from the seller as he will try and get you to change the feedback. EBay will tell you that you can request your money back by filing an action. Then ebay will find for the seller and they will remove your feedback and the seller will continue to have great ratings. If you don't file and request a refund and ignore comments from the seller then your negative feedback will stand and hopefully others will see it and be warned.... Its up to you if you want to forgo attempting to get your money back in favor of getting some negative feedback out there but this is the only way to do it. many folks have gone the other route and attempted to contact eBay and provide proof that the scammer and his team are criminals.... EBay refuses to action removing them permanently because either they have a mole working there or eBay is simply making too much money off of these auctions. One of the forum members did a forensic analysis recently and determined that these scammer makes thousands and thousands of dollars off of each fraudulent ad. EBay get ~15% of the sales proceeds and PP gets about 5% so the math stacks in favor of the companies keeping the relationship with the scammers active....



tsparozi. Thanks for the advice. I will wait to see if the cutting grows (I doubt it will grow anything). If not, then I will leave negative feedback warning others and eat-up the cost.

Ross. I am sure that other newbies like me, wants to know the best rooting method. Currently, I know and using two method of rooting: 1) lasagna method (lasagna pan with layers of pine woodchip, perlite, compost, perlite, cutting, and perlite), 2) Zip lock bag method (cutting covered with moist paper towel). 
On your video you mentioned rooting with wrapped parafilm. It was 1st time hearing about this method.
Some people say that they can grow cutting by just sticking it in the soil.
I am sure that there is other methods out there...

By the way. Could you tell me your most successful method of growing cuttings?

Ross, thank you for spending time making this video. It was well put together with very valuable information and I learned a lot for it. I started buying and rooting cuttings this Fall. Never thought about how many pots will I end up and where to place them in the winter.
I hope you will come out with more videos with details on each topics.

I wish I had read this forum before. Last week I bought Takoma Violet cutting from "dausername1". Received them yesterday and I put them to root. The ends had wax on them but not sure if they were old or fresh cuttings since I am a newbie; but they were very dark. Should I wait to see if it grows or should I not waist time and throw them out?
