    I recall a similar situation on the Northern California / Oregon border where there was once a huge stand of Darlingtonia. Not only were all of the plants -- some a meter tall -- scavenged a few years back, there were also a heap of Bud Lite cans and a broken shovel handle left behind . . .

    That is so sad. I was hoping to visit Australia again one day and possibly see some Ceph's in the wild. Unfortunately it is the greed factor. With Ceph's going anywhere from $80 to $300 on E-bay. Someone saw an oppurtunity for some quick $. The real sad part is that most wild collected plants do not grow well in cultivation, so most are probably doomed to die.
    The most sad of all is that it was unnecessary as Ceph's are in TC and mass produced for cultivation. This is just plain greed and unfortunatly that is human nature.

    Sad and stupid all the same. Who thinks that the plants appearing on ebay next year won't be spotted ?
