    Is anyone growing this plant? I thought mine had died last year but now it's sending up 3 huge traps. I understand this plant is endangered. Is that true?

    I have heard about it, but haven't been to a place that carries it.

    They are on the endangered species list and are protected by state laws. We are able to get them, we just have to get the right permits. It is very obvious that a plant purchased in Europe is not field collected from the United States. Well, I guess someone could do that if really wanted to.

    I do believe the ICPS seed bank has been authorised to distribute S. oreophila to members in the U.S.A..

    I am waiting for my first pitchers of the season.

    Careful where you crawl, it might be a trap!

    Thanks for the replys. Knowing that, I will make every effort to propagate mine so more of you can have one. I have never divided a Sarracenia (you may know Nepenthes have been my main focus) so in this case I may ask for an expert to do it for me.

    The ESA (Endangered Species Act) makes it illegal to sell endangered plants. It also makes it illegal to move them across state lines in any way shape or form, and a variety of other things. It is possible to get permits for such activities but the process and paperwork to do so is very complex.

    below is the section from the ESA that pertains to listed plants:
    Section 9 prohibited acts:
    (2) Except as provided in sections 6(g)(2) and 10 of this Act, with respect to any endangered species of plants listed pursuant to section 4 of this Act, it is unlawful for any person subject to the jurisdiction of the United States to-
    (A) import any such species into, or export any such species from, the United States;
    (B) remove and reduce to possession any such species from areas under Federal jurisdiction; maliciously damage or destroy any such species on any such area; or remove, cut, dig up, or damage or destroy any such species on any other area in knowing violation of any law or regulation of any state or in the course of any violation of a state criminal trespass law;
    © deliver, receive, carry, transport, or ship in interstate or foreign commerce, by any means whatsoever and in the course of a commercial activity, any such species;
    (D) sell or offer for sale in interstate or foreign commerce any such species; or
    (E) violate any regulation pertaining to such species or to any threatened species of plants listed pursuant to section 4 of this Act and promulgated by the Secretary pursuant to authority provided by this Act.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    S. oreophila is a beauty! Mine has 4 or 5 growing points and is doing very well, it is a very strong spring performing Sarracenia. Mine was hand given to me as a gift...as was my S. alabamensis. Well....I flew back home with it...is that counted as crossing state lines?
