    Flytrap thefts could become felony under N.C. bill

    I don't get on much any more because grad school severely hampers my down time, but I thought it would be worth getting on to post this. Sure, the article is probably more suited to the Dionaea or Conservation Station sections, but I thought it'd be appropriate for the whole community.

    Wow great article! One thing I don't understand is why don't they try and re-introduce them into the wild? There is no shortage of VFT's in the trade.

    Nice to see representatives doing something useful! They need to be careful about re-introducing them into the wild because the new plants will alter the gene pool and could potentially lead to a loss of the "wild" flytrap genes.

    Finally!
    Hopefully, if passed, it will discourage poaching even more...
    I love to see stuff like this happening!
    Personally, I'd be fine with introducing standard SEED-GROWN plants derived from a diverse genetic line, so that you'd help increase diversity, but not flood it with clones or potentially introduce the genes for malformed plants (fused tooth, alien, etc...)
    Hope I helped!
