From what I understand the plant can be sold as long as it is not crossing any state lines. If it is, it must be a gift and nothing charged for it.

i just got their email...and its illegal what they are doing. they are charging 6$ for shipping the plant to you. if you get your plant...technically you obtained it illegally.

Maybe I misunderstood the e mail I got, but it's hard for me to believe that a plant large enough for a 3 inch pot would require an extra $6 for the sole purpose of shipping.
That said, it's a ridiculous law in the first place. They want to prevent poaching by making a plant rare and more desirable, meanwhile our friends in Europe get the plants (that's not even NATIVE there.... I mean you'd think we'd be allowed to buy a plant NATIVE to our own country....) with no qualms.
Not only that, BUT this plant is renowned for making profuse divisions! It's a vigorous, prolific plant! The laws in this country.... no sense.
I can't believe carnivorous horticultural law is so hard to find *end sarcasm*
1)You may not engage in "trade" of plants with anyone outside of your state. Trade means you cannot sell plants, barter plants for goods, or even exchange plants for plants. (see E.S.A. F.17.61(d),(e).
--Qualifier #1: It is my reading of the E.S.A. that you may transmit listed plants across state lines personally or through the mail if it is purely a gift, and if you do not ask for money. This is because such an activity is not considered commerce (see E.S.A. F.17.61(d), (e)). However, I could also argue that even gifts are prohibited by E.S.A. F.17.61(b), but I do not think this is the case.
--Qualifier #2: I suppose you could ask your interstate partner to send you money to cover postage, packing, etc. However, I would not do this if I were you. I would advise that you simply eat the postage charges and stay clear of breaking the law.
