    I would tend to agree. No reason to dig up a species that is widely available and cheap, even though the population in question was introduced.

    To address one recurring theme, that of disturbing established plants in the wild, consider the efforts of those who work to restore the proper native flora to an area. The first step in such a worthwhile endeavor is to remove the non-natives. And also consider the following value judgement: whose offense is greater? The person who removes such a plant, or the person who put it where it isn't supposed to be in the first place?

    the greater offense is placing the plant in an ecological system where it isnt supposed to be... if that never happened, then there would have been no need to remove the said plant.

    at least that's my two cents.

    if it wasnt so damn cold here id plant VFTs in local bogs

    its a shame that VFTs werent able to spread out of their limited "native" habitat.

    oooh i like the conflicting sentiments of the last two comments

    but overall i believe plant planters argument is the strongest. if it were drosera, outside of its native habitat... maybe it would be a different story.
