    Thanks! I also am glad everything turned out well!

    I just heard from him, apparently the plants are doing very well for him. At least he didn't kill them...

    He also posted in a thread where I was looking for some plant locations and he said "Don't worry, if I find any, I won't touch them"

    Hehehe, I think he is scared of getting chewed out by the "Masked Vigilante" again...

    Good to hear of at least one success story about this kind of thing. It's a good thing I learned these rules BEFORE I found my first wild CP's.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.

    So... why isn't he puting the plants back? It's like saying, "it's wrong, but it's OK this time, so enjoy them!" Am I the only one that's thinking this? I can't be...He lives in the area, right?

    I can understand if he has some trouble getting there, of course, but I think he should make a concerted effort to return the plants when he has the opportunity, whether that's today or a couple months down the road.

    I think him keeping the plants, or even giving them away to others, sends the message that is was OK. It still encourages the practice of poaching for him and anyone he shares the plants with, whether he gets money in return or not, because he's still enjoying the results of his action!

    Ok, that makes it more understandable. Just hope he really learned the lesson here. Still, if and when he does go back to the area I think he should return them.
    ...In either case, now he knows, so no sense on my part beating this to death :/

    Plus if he transplanted them this time of year they wouldn't have time to root in before winter and most likely wouldn't survive dormancy.
