    no no no no no. don't even think about it. theres no reason to take anything except pictures (PICtures, not PITchers). we already have enough problems with poachers and we don't need someone else to worry about.

    don't even think about it. if you want plants you can buy or trade for them like the rest of us.

    The laws are the same everywhere. No collecting of wild material for any reason or purpose. IF and WHEN a plant needs rescue, there are special groups who do this. Not only could it hurt the environment but major fines can and usually will be imposed upon you and you still will not get to keep the plants.
    I understand most people think 1 or 2 plants will not hurt but the truth is that almost everyone thinks this. Therefore if 3,000 people collect 1 or 2 plants each...........that is an entire micro-ecosystem that has been wiped out.

    An individual can't collect anything in a state/national park. That's the purpose in making an area a park...

    - what do you do when your bog is full? you build another. and another. and another. then you buy some pots. and some more. and some more. and some more. then you wonder how much it would cost to rework the hydrology in your yard to place your house on an island. -

    I would agree that it's not legal to collect from a park(w/o permission of course), but otherwise, it is not illegal to collect, unless the plants are protected. Unless somebody knows a law that I don't.
    Now the majority of the cp community frowns on collection, but I think the general rule of thumb by the ICPS is one seed pod out of each 50 present(don't know about that for sure , and I can't look it up). I do not think it condones collection of plants, unless as stated above, where they are going to get plowed.
