Thread: S. alata "texas"

    You guys are an astute group. I'm familiar with the bog that was destroyed for a road. The plants were removed and relocated on a preserve. It's a shame that a Texas bog was lost but, at least the plants didn't get destroyed. It sounds to me like the plants being sold are OK.

    I'm not pointing my finger at the woman selling the plants, I know nothing about the history of the bog or the plants. I was just saying in general I don't think the plants should be sold as profit, but I'd rather see the plants sold then destroyed. For most plants being sold is a death sentance anyway.

    Not that I'm disbelieveing you but if they were relocted to a preserve how is she selling them?

    You can read about it for yourselves. From the website below click on "bog tours" then "Site No.2, Warren, TX." For those interested in S.alata in Texas this is an excellent website, loaded with images.

    I visited the grower of the S. alata-Texas. She obtained seed from the location about to be bulldozed for the road by applying for the correct permits to do so. None of the plants were poached, and all the plants she is selling are from seed.
