    My next sarr i would like to get is a oreophila. I probably won't buy it until late winter of '04 but i was wondering where i can get one. I don't think pft sells it because i've never seen it in their online store. They sell it at cook’s but it says "limited to sales in Oregon only." I know Cook’s is located in oregon but why can the sarr only be sold in there?? Does anyone know? Thanks

    S. oreophila is on the Federal Endangered Species list. The plant cannot be traded over State boarders, nor sold outside the State. S. oreophila is also listed under CITES.


    Please do not trade this plant or discuss ways to obtain the plant. Trading and selling this plant is illegal. So, do not do it nor discuss how to do it and with whom.

    the only ways yuo can get the plant is if someone gives it to you as a gift , its a weird lupole but its true , that means that you don't have to pay for the plant and you can not send money to them or give them something in return .another way to get it is if there is a cp store near you in your state that does sell the plant . i got my plant from ************, the guy was real nice and i mention that my birthday was coming and he gave me a decent size beaitiful plant . good luck , this lupole also counts for the 2 endangered arracenia rubra species as well .

    I think you need a friend in Oregon who will buy it for you. Then you could get them to send it to you as a gift (I don't know if you need some sort of letter saying as such in case a postal worker opens it). Maybe someone on this forum will do it for you?

    Dean is a very nice guy (at least in my experiences). If you were to ask him about it, he may send you one free, if you place an order for some other stuff with him. He gave me one last year, just stuck it in with the other plants I ordered. I didn't even ask about it. I asked him later and he said he had a lot of them and was trying to create some room for other stuff.

    I've found that it never hurts to ask anyone. The worst that's going to happen is they'll say no.

    I just got one from Wistuba. I only used the general permit to import all of the plants. Wether or not it's illegal that way, I dont know. But seriously, I you guys just send the plant and dont right down anything regarding the name of the species, there is no way any authorities could positively ID a rare pitcher plant like that, which would like like any other sarracenia to non cp growers.
