    Not such a dumb law, really. The plant is nearly nonexistant in the wild. Poachers will no doubt ignore the law and continue to break it, but at the hobbyist level it does help to control the distribution of the plant and limit some illegal collection. While it doesn't work for all, it does have an impact. Anything will help this nearly extinct plant.

    the best thing for the plant is lots of people growing it so the cost of it goes down and there is no profit it taking from the wild, someone should tc the heck out of it

    You'd think so. For a long time there were literally millions of flytraps being TCed, but I still find holes throughout the Green Swamp where poachers pull them up. There were two well-publicized incidents last year where individuals were caught with garbage bags full of VFTs.

    I have received a few offers, but no follow-up. All four plants are still available.

    The two smaller plants have found homes, the larger two are still available.
