Is it the guy from Jupiter FL?  Who is it here? 

His seedlings are awesome!  I ordered almost every single type he has since the first batch was so nice.  They are all doing fantastic.

Here's what some of them looked like on arrival:

He used to sell under the name genuineprotection. I have never ordered from him, so I cannot personally attest to whether he is a good seller, but he has good feedback. I prefer to buy seeds (I do my fruit plant collecting as inexpensively as possible), but he has an excellent selection of rare seedlings, and I will probably put in an order or two at some point in the future.

9waters is one of the BEST sellers online in my opinion. Iíve never had a bad experience. You will be very happy buying from him.

Hands down great seller. Always send out on the same day and you receive your package very fast. All my seedlings are healthy. The packaging is done very well that it does not get damage during transit.

Yes. Bought from him once.  3 seedlings (rollinia, pink wompee, and yellow star cherry).  All came without any issues.  And yes, the seedlings are very small.  the trunk is like 1/16" or 1-2mm :D

So far 2 of them all doing fine. One didn't make it.

I've bought from them as well. Plants are small but packaging is impeccable and arrive undamaged.

Are you sure the Wampee you received was actually a Wampee?  I am thinking mine is actually a curry leaf.  No complaints otherwise, though.

Excellent quality plants.  I've ordered many from him and have never had any issues.  Highly recommended.

I have a few pink wampee seedlings, and they do resemble curry leaf, in that they are compound leaves.

Not sure. It was the one that did not survive.

Pink wampee can be used in same way as curry leaf.
