    Hm, the ICPS says you need a CITES somethingorother to get Oreo seed from them, so...

    Anyone ever done that, btw? I think that would be an interesting project.

    I think it goes something like this:

    Over state lines:
    -No trading/selling unless you have a CITES permit.
    -Giving it as a gift (completely free and no shipping charge) is okay.

    Within a state:
    -Trading/selling is okay.

    This applies to:
    -Sarracenia oreophila
    -Sarracenia alabamensis ssp. alabamensis
    -Sarracenia jonesii
    -Any of the listed plants' cultivars/varieties, registered or unregistered.

    Pollen and seed of any of these is to be considered the same as an individual plant of that species.

    Correct me if I'm wrong.


    I got mine from someone within California, so I'm all good!

    Please take the time to read closely so:
    - you get the correct info
    - you keep from sharing the incorrect info to others

    Here's the info quoted from the ICPS seedbank:
    The ICPS can not distribute seed of plants protected by CITES Appendix I outside of the USA. If you do not live in the USA, please do not send CITES Appendix I seed to the Seed Bank unless you have CITES permits. These plants are Sarracenia alabamensis, S. jonesii, S. oreophila, Nepenthes khasiana, N. rajah, and Pinguicula ionantha.
    (I bolded the word 'outside'). Folks inside the USA can get these seeds legally from the ICPS....
    All the best,

    Really? Sweet!

    I might give that a try, I have a nice enough rack setup going now, I could set up one of those seedling tray flat things and go nuts.

    I take it the guy who keeps selling S. oreophila seeds on eBay is still breakin' the law, though, right?

    It's fairly common to have a second flush of smaller, more heavily veined pitchers for a short period.

    I don't think hybrids of a protected species are also protected. But then again, what do I know. (you don't need to answer that.)
