    It is sad to think of these terrific plants dying in the wrong hands, and thus slightly tempting to try to bid... But I hope these plants carry raging pestilence and virulent plague into the greenhouse of whoever buys them. May you and your plants choke on a vicious tropical Thai fever. I don't know, wild collecting plants just doesn''t seem good any way you look at it.

    that makes no logic

    I asked the seller "How will this plant be shipped to protect the pitchers and the root structure? Do you have the overseas paperwork so there is not any trouble with international shipments?"

    and s/he responded:

    yeah...it's unfortunate for these guys. but...if somebody buys the plant, it'll only encourage him to do it AGAIN. So...for the love of all nepenthes...don't buy it!

    N. globosa isn't CITES protected, which kinda sucks for this purpose.

    Anyway, this happened before, and I'm pretty sure the folks at the CPUK forum got the listing taken off. Might wanna ask Aidan, I think it was him that did it...or he will at least know the details of it.

    @herenorthere:
    I have grown this species for a while. That is definitely a "viking" (a very nice one too...grade A/B+)

    @cool85:
    Nepenthes in Thailand are not weeds. There are some areas where there are large populations, but these populations are being burned/destroyed by the locals daily. You might want to contact Onny at CPUK forum if you want more info on that. N. globosa in particular is rare. It is restricted to IIRC only 1 island in Thailand, that very few people know the location of. I know there is a family that used to poach them and sell them to survive, but I think because of the efforts of Nong (at NeoFarm), they have learned to respect them and propagate them correctly



    PS: Thailand is a member of CITES

    OMFG

    If worst comes to worst Buy them send them back to a respected person in Thailand, or w/e it is from.

    But even then it is risked being poached again.

    CITES PROTECT THIS PLANT in the next week PLEASE!!!

    CITES wont do anything. Maybe someone can contact Nong at NeoFarm and see what he says. Apparently he knows the location of these plants and may be able to do something about the poachers
