Default Getting in Touch with PR-Giant?

Howdy, y'all.

I've been trying to reach PR-Giant (apologies for not knowing his real name) for a couple of weeks about some corms that he has offered for sale. Since I've been unsuccessful in reaching him here, I was wondering if anyone might feel comfortable PM-ing me his e-mail address so that I might have a better chance of getting his attention.

Thanks for your help!

Just go on his public profile and click on 'send a message via email'. That should do it.

I was trying to purchase some corms last year from a contest he said that I was the winner of, $7.95 each for at least 4 corms, but the conversation eventually fell flat and the deal was never completed. I was ready to send payment, but was never answered how I should do it.

It was 2 years ago and it wasn't a contest, I simply asked that the pm include a zip code. I thought the price was $4.95 ea. but either way you were the first to include a zip in the pm. There were two problems with that deal, first I did not expect for someone to actually want more than one a'ea'e at that price and second, I was very clear when the a'ea'e would be ready to ship and you insisted on shipping sooner. I wanted to comply, so as a trial I separated an a'ea'e and potted it, it died and so did the deal.

I learnt a lot from that experience and now I try to be more careful who I agree to deal with.
I keep a photo of that pup in my gallery as a reminder of that near deal.

I'm just a farmer, not a nursery. And I've been incredibly busy since my last post 4 days ago. But you do have my attention now and I see that you sent a pm 4 days ago, I apologize for not getting to it. If your pm was pertaining to bananas for sale I am sure we are out of stock of all bananas that may or may not have been in your pm.


BTW my e-mail address was listed in the thread that you sent the pm from.

I have no hard feelings with the deal falling through with PR Giants, reason I wanted a certain shipping time was I live in Wisconsin and didn't want anything shipped when it was too cold.

And is was 2 yrs. ago and some of the details of what happened were a little fuzzy from what I remembered.

Anyway, some PMs were answered right away and some it took awhile. I was just a little excited about the deal, and it got a little frustrating as the deal seemed to fall apart, even though I wasn't sure that was happening.
