    There is another grower on this forum by the name of phoenixvoz or something that has admitted to removing hundreds of neps from the forest by his house, he calls them N. thorelii which I'm sure they are really a form of mirabilis or maybe n. Bokorensis, I have no idea about the distribution range of bokorensis...but he's taken hundreds of plants, he says he propogates them and places them back in the wild. I highly doubt it.

    Hi,
    What he said is a lie he buy from my friend my friend sold a lot of thorelli his house in in Ho Chi Minh city, there is no such thing like save nepenthes in the wild in viet nam, no protect nepenthes out of the finder . Too much people try to find nepenthes in the wild to sold for grower that why nepenthes have disippere a lot of area in viet nam.

    Ah i see,
    Even then....i dont see why he would claim he wild collects, it makes growers rather frustrated.....
    i know i grilled him hard when i heard about it, but since its not illegal there i cant really say too much other than morals :|
