The clue to their origins appears to be in the description title i.e. (wild)
This, and the fact that the seller has no feedback at all, could suggest there is something rather shady happening.

I buy the cheapo ribbons for my P-touch which runs WiFi to my laptop.
I’ve not had any significant problems with them. I do have problems with the Brother tapes, essentially being that they are anything but cheapo.....
Which p-touch is it? I think I'll finally treat myself with one this year!

I would rather see one specific thread on identifications for people to get their plants identified than people regularly making new threads with their requests (like on the Cactiguide forums). Identification requests really can get out of control, if one is not careful. That was partially my inten...

Re: Plant Passport question

Yeah it is but why not just put the name and address there so it can be traced if there is a problem rather than making it some reference code that only DEFRA or whoever it is inspecting then knows? You just answered your own question, no business wants to be bothered by the customer 5 steps down t...
