Awww I see that I stirred up a (tongue in cheek ) cobra's nest.LOL
Andrew provided me with info on plant patents. Thanx andrew.little did i know this heated debate was goin on over here on T F
Here is my take( opinion, view) on the subjest If the plant has a printed,authorized patent label on it. IMMSMC the label states that there is a 10.000 fine for propagating that particular plant either sexually or asexually without the written consent of the owner of that patent owner.
I'll let you know for sure what the words are as a friend os mine who owns a small wholesale nursery, has been granted permission to grow 200 of these plant this yearShe'll get her labels in a day or 2. yes they are being circulated by booman's.( the patent holder)yet some of them are jest being sold with Booman's generirc sarracenia ,pitcher plants labels.
Talk about muddy waters.LOL
