I just got an early Christmas present!

Well I found a seller listing bulbs on ebay starting at 99 cents. I guess not a lot of people where watching the auctions because I was able to "steal" a few for a buck! All in all I got 5 bulbs for 14 dollars. I honestly wasnt expecting much for the price, but the box arrived today and I was shocked! These were the healthiest and best shipped bulbs I have ever received. Take a look at the picture, they even put padding on the growth points to protect them! All in all I got a Temptation, Pamela, Dancing Queen, Red Nymph and a Rosalie for 14 bucks! Now lets just hope they are as labeled and it would be a dream come true. Just thought I would share my excitement with you all!

That's cool!!! I'm hoping they're as labeled, but if not, hopefully they'll still be neat ones that you'll enjoy!

RE: I just got an early Christmas present!

Wow! Those are great looking bulbs, I'm sure you'll enjoy them no matter what they are....a healthy bulb is a beautiful bulb..!!


RE: I just got an early Christmas present!

Wow - nice bulbs radar! It's so exciting when an eBay purchase works out well! (Reminds me of Donna's papilio story.)


RE: I just got an early Christmas present!

They look exactly like the bulbs I got from Mclure and Zimmerman, packaged exactly the same way :)

RE: I just got an early Christmas present!

It would be great if these are M and Z bulbs. I have had really good experiences with the health of their bulbs...just not true to color but always interesting and worth the time and money.
