    Hi,

    I'm just wondering, does anyone know of laws regarding trading wild collected orchids? There is a person that has obviously wild collected seeds and plants on an exchange list on another forum (not here, but I think people may be able to guess which one...), I'm wondering if it is legal or not? And, if it isn't, who to contact?

    It depends on what the orchids are. Some countries have laws against collecting them. Most do not. Some are listed on CITES 1, most are not.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
