I wanted to make sure I understand the CITES regulations correctly before I make a purchase I am thinking about doing. I am looking at buying some S. Oreophila "Sand Mountain" seeds from a grower in the czeck republic. I know that Oreos are on the CITES list and cannot be sold across state lines in the US. I assume that they are therefore prohibited from being sold internationally. Am I correct on this? Is there maybe an exception for cultivated clones, similar to the restrictions that were placed on Darlingtonias? I want to make sure this sale is on the up and up so if anyone can tell me with some authority I would appreciate it. I hope that people that just heard one way or the other will check their sources before posting so I know for sure.
Thanks for the help with this everyone!
Thank you everyone for the valuable info on this. Everyone confirmed what I thought about this sale, potentially shady.
Also curse spell check, I knew it was Czech Republic.
