    As an FYI, here are the ICPS policy statements regarding this type of activity. In addition, here are their seed collection guidelines.

    you guys are just jealous and do not know enough about the situation to have any opinion! I should have kept my mouth shut because unless I fill u in on every piece of information (including location), you just wont get the point! so it is just pointless at this point! FYI I am only taking the plants that will get stepped on and killed by fisherman who walk out on the floating bog to fish!

    I don't suppose it is around Mt. Lassen which is where you apparently go fishing according to your profile. If it is, I'm sure you realize it's also a national park?

    Max, the point is be mindful of the environment. Its not about right and wrong it is about CONSERVATION. Yes, plants may be stepped on by fishermen but what do you think if you're out there collecting as well, or an animal trods on the bog. Damage is going to happen whether it is natural or unnatural.

    Ignore most the lawful views and just view for yourself, CONSERVE and be respectful. I do not disapprove of you taking seeds/leaves/cuttings etc, but if you DO remove a plant, be sure to REPLACE it with some of the ones you have managed to reproduce.

    The other point here is that these Drosera species are most likely already in circulation so you wouldn't have a high demand for them to begin with. Don't become so harsh and angry at people that are just explaining things to you. For one to fully understand something, he must embrace it all, not just one view.

    See the whole point here is we are only just talking to you online. In the end you will be making the final decision. We are just asking you to understand from a conservation standpoint. We are not saying to do nothing. Enjoy the environment. Most of us are miles away from any sort of natural bogs. Enjoy the views. Get some seed or cuttings and so on....but don't rip out like masses of those plants...just becos u think they are very very numerous. Without a positive ID on the species...those species might be endangered yet be very numerous only in that area.

    And as everyone said....what kind of sundew is that? sundews are a dime a dozen for most of the temperate species and you can find them easily.

    Max,

    We obviously dont know the exact details, but your ideas are what everyone thought back when sarracenia were the seas of piture plants we so often hear of and long for. Sure, you're probably correct in assuming taking a few out wont hurt. But WHAT IF it did, in some adverse way? What if other people take "a few" from there all the time? Just think of the what ifs, and no matter how you spin it, it still is poaching. We're not being rude, just blatently honest.

    Drosera filiformis and many other species and/ or hybrids grow all over the location! WHEN I FIRST POSTED THE ORIGINAL THREAD I SHOULD HAVE STATED THE FOLLOWING......
    I AM GOING TO TAKE (HARVEST) SEEDS, MAYBE A COUPLE OF CUTTINGS, AND MAYBE TRY SAVING A COUPLE FROM BEING STEPPED ON AND KILLED BY FISHERMAN!!!!!
    SO STOP ACTING LIKE I AM GOING TO DESTROY THE INVIROMENT BECAUSE I AM DOING NO SUCH THING!
