    I bought a book from them. What makes them a bad nursery?

    Here's what I think is happening.
    There is a cp greenhouse that pays people to bring them plants. I have talked to the owner and he as told me that he buys cp's from people that go around and collects them. So the ones that's are doing the poaching are really selling them for a low price. The GH owner then pots them up grows the under extreme amounts of light and then ships them around the country for $45 for a case of 25.

    What are you doing/what can we do to discourage this practice?

    I'm going to contact the person in charge of the site and talk to him.
    What you can do is watch ebay for any bare root flytraps. Be on the lookout for any bare root vft's for sale, not just on ebay.

    Oz,

    Do you mean the person that has been busted for this practice before in NC, or the one in NY that pays others to do his dirty work?

    No, the person I am thinking of as not been busted before (as far as I know).
    No, the person or GH is not from NY.

    I want to add, that everything I have said about this is my opinion and not fact. I don't know anymore about the case other than what has been reported to the media.
