Great response, what are your thoughts on taking a leaf pulling and throwing it into tissue culture without removing a plant? This way the plants stay there and can still be propogated by growers.nimbulan wrote:Even if the wild population was that large and it were legal, it's never a good idea to dig up plants out of the wild and bring them home. They often won't survive the sudden environmental change.

Which is why I encourage people living in that state to attempt to mass propogate these plants in their homeland and begin recreating natural environments for them.riveraXVX wrote:not to mention its not like venus fly traps grew almost extinct in a large swatch of land in tons of places, they were really only native to one small isolated area of the world. they were displaced by land use and poachers from the small areas they were in

I've seen your post but Im heading out now I will reply a bit later.nimbulan wrote:Replanting efforts are tricky. You can't just create new habitat for the plants - carnivorous plant habitats are very specialized and easily disrupted by human development. One small developed area can have a large impact on a wide area of land around it and downstream, an impact that can't be reversed without returning the developed land to its original state which just won't happen.
On top of that you have to combat poachers, since they can follow the replanting teams for easy pickings.
Also who are we talking about?

Valid point Kate, I beleive I've been checkmated there. I was actually stumped on a response (:KategoricalKarnivore wrote:And what would your feelings be when one of those flytraps that were grown at someone’s home get planted in their native habitat and just so happens to bring a pest insect/fungus/algae/etc that wipes out the entire population of wild flytraps?
