Very rare Eugenia pisiformis Raffle!
« on: June 08, 2022, 07:27:13 PM »
Hey Myrtaceae Maniacs I have my last Eugenia pisiformis that Iím willing to let go on a raffle on the Myrtaceae Mania on Band.
 
I have heard some hobbyists on here say that some very rare species are priced so high that they are unobtainable, well I canít do anything about that itís just supply and demand but I can do a raffle at $5 a spot with 36 spots. Just 1 germinated seed retails for around $160 from Seedshunter the only source of this species outside of Brazil that I know of. Any ? please ask on the Band group. Thank you.

Actual seedling being sent to the winner no shipping charge anywhere in the USA and PR.

Well retail price would be much more. On eBay it could go over $180 not including shipping. 1 germinated seed retails for $160 plus shipping. It is very rare first time being imported to the US that I know of.

14 spots taken so far the raffle for this very rare Eugenia using the random name selector called Wheel of Names.  Donít hesitate to join the Band group and buy a spot because Sunday evening I will allow the members that already have a spot to buy multiples. I want to give it some time get as many on here a chance to participate in this raffle.

   Thatís alright Iím having to force myself to learn all this new tech stuff too. This will be the first I have live streamed anything. I have to say though the Band app makes it very easy to communicate with each other once itís figured out.

No new entries for this auction at this time. Look out though for new raffles and auctions in the future.
