I will bet that it was. Nothing covers a plant like CAS, and if it is as thick as you say, it just about HAS to be CAS. It takes a year and a half for the regular scale to get that thick, but it only takes 3 months for it to get that thick when it is CAS. The dead ringer on this is if you look real close, you will see round shaped scales and pin shaped scales all together, which are the males and the females. I can agree, either way, you were treated poorly from that one guy and if he is not the owner, I would also complain to the owner because that person has driven away a good 20 year customer and you were treated like a criminal.
