    35 years ago I was walking ten miles to school, through 20 ft snow drifts. I don't have any photos either. Did I mention it was uphill both ways?

    The idea of releasing a home grown plant versus a wild plant is kinda like saying hey all the wolves are extinct lets release a bunch of German Shepards to replace them. Bad genes kill thousands of plants/animals a year but by survival of the fittest we get the healthier more stable populations. If people go out and collect so many plants then we could wipe out a whole genetic variant (some people aren't as good at growing plants as they think). So we collect one whole field and over 90% die off then we could have destroyed several genetically different plant groups.


    If that doesn make sense I will try to explain it alittle better.

    As flowering plants they are of great value to the ecosystem, especially in a nutrient poor area where flowers are sparse anyway. No flowers = no bees.

    A plant (and an ecosystem) shouldn't have to demonstrate a quantifiable value to justify its preservation. Even if a VFT is an ecological bystander, just occupying space, it's one of the coolest plants on the planet and quite possibly the coolest. That's why they're protected and boardwalks to the VFTs are built over less photogenic species. People want to protect fuzzy animals with big brown eyes and also plants that snap shut on helpless insects. Go figure.
