"Check it out," John said to his friend, Detective Sing, over dinner one night. "For a mere $5,000 I could purchase one of the rarest annuals around, Bulbous Aromaticus.

"I was talking to a horticulturist, and she said she was willing to sell me one of the plants and then, each year when it flowered, she told me I could sell the seeds myself. Given the rarity of this particular plant, I could make a fortune!"

"Save your money," said Detective Sing. "This horticulturist is a fraud."

How did he know?
