    Looking for Oreophila 'Sand Mountain'

    Hey fellow cp friends I've been looking for Oreophila 'Sand Mountain'. Plants or seeds. Clearly I can't buy them or trade for them...
    Anyone have an idea.?
    Sand mountain Alabama was the home of my late aunt for many of years and I would love to add this species to my collection.

    There's at least 1 vendor that has permits to sell and ship these here in the US.

    Sales or trades of Endangered Species Act plants (and seed) are legal if it is within the same state (Ohio in your case).

    Otherwise as mentioned before there are at least one vendor that has the permits to sell ESA plants interstate. They can be sent across state lines without an ESA permit as long as no money, goods or services are exchanged

    Not sure if it's the Sand Hill population though.
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    Why is that? It seems more counterproductive to the survival of the species rather than helping it.

    The law specifically bans interstate commerce of listed species, and makes no mention of intrastate commerce. A law can only do what its text says. At least until recently...........

    I'd love for someone to correct me if I'm wrong since I'm only basing this on my own logic and not off any source of any kind. I think preventing the sale of a plant discourages people from poaching from the wild. If you can't sell it, there isn't much point in searching out a "free" wild population to make profit on.
