    Excellent work all around. It looks like the dye marking program is a success.

    Mark, it's good that you are in the area to help look after these.

    Who were the poachers? I know there is a company in NC that has asked people to wild collect illegally. I sorta would like to know so I don't buy illegal plants!

    I don't know who they are. That information wasn't released.

    If you don't mind PM me the company that has asked people to poach.

    I do know one company that wild collects. It's Flytrap farms.

    There's CIP (or C.I.P.) Nursery in Surrey County, North Carolina. The owner got busted twice for supplying false paperwork to some Dutch buyer. The paperwork showed that the plants were nursery grown where as soil analysis showed they were wild collected. The articles don't state who did the collecting.

    See this post for links to articles:

    I'm glad to see those flytraps and pitcher plants are now home and I can't wait to see them in the summer growing well. I just hope one day we can stop this poaching all together of coarse that'll be along time, but I can dream something like this could happen.


    Thanks for all the hardwork you all done there doing this I wish I lived in North Carolina or near it to help with things like this I guess the least thing I can do is donate when I can.

    *edited out stupid post my brother made*
    He said "you guys are the best." If by "you guys" he meant the people who helped reintroduce those poached plants, it was true anyway.
    Insanity is a sane response to an insane world.
