    I can't agree with you enough. Thankfully, we seem to be heading towards the day that nature, technology, and people finally all get along. (Key words: seem to.)

    I read in an article about poaching that nurseries/dealers pay poachers 25 to 75 cents. Don't know why they bother since wholesale prices from the tissue culture suppliers is around 50 cents a plant.

    Poached plants like these often end up being sold on the roadside.

    It appears Julia Rehder, Stanley Rehder's daughter is reaching out to dealers to be on the alert for these stolen plants. See this post on the ICPS website:

    Here are a few more pieces on this theft taken from the above message:

    I know how it would feel to be in his daughter's shoes. Honestly after I read this I felt like a part of me was stolen.
    I hope they find the moron who stoled those venus flytraps.

    Why were the flytraps valued at $20 each?

    I had an idea for putting an effort up to problems like this, so I thought posting it on this thread would be the best idea. Has anyone considered putting up a sign that reads, "Stealing flytraps brings bad luck" ? My friend had a serious problem with people sneaking onto his property and stealing horseshoes from a giant stack of them almost 200 years old. Ever since he put up a sign like that, not a single horseshoe has been stolen since. The signs are pretty easy to make. Fake and real security cameras in obvious places have also proved to work well here in SoCal to prevent people from sneaking on to rancher's farms and stealing hay bales. . .


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com
