Additionally to what Charles already mentioned concerning notoriously 
wrong identification, the mail account of Chen Yi had been hacked in the 
past and some scammer asked for an advance payment. And of course, as a 
result the money was gone and plants never arrived. Chen Yi will always 
ship plant without prior payment. So make sure it is indeed Chen Yi you 
are dealing with and do not make any advance payment!

 From my point of view and omitting all wrongly identified plants (the 
majority from her list), her range of true species is pretty limited and 
there is not a single one which has not been established in cultivation 
already. Additionally, all of her plants are wild collected, and 
sometimes these go into the thousands ...
