    Hey Casper,

    Nice idea that you have, but it wouldn't fly. I am pretty sure that as far as the US Fish & Wildlife Service would see it, this is the same as a regular sale. Someone forks out money, they get a plant.

    I'd advise you guys steer clear of the endangered/threatened species (S. alabamensis, S. oreophila, S. jonesii, Pinguicula ionantha) to be on the safe side.

    Later!

    That course of action had already been decided upon, Barry. Thanks for ringing in though, we do want to keep this on the level, but some of the Forums guys were on their toes and warned us earlier. We acquiesced because of our uncertainty. Now we know for sure.

    Iv'e got 3 kumquat seedlings, and I could also start a dozen or so pregnant onion plants(given time for them to sprout). I could send a pic of the plants so people know what they're bidding on.

    Hey Guys,

    Looks like the announcement to our customers will come next Tuesday. Until then, we'll work out some auction software to use.
