    Hi all thanks for the reply. Nepenthes is a totally protected plant here.The law is very clear .It is prohibited to collect ,sell and plant neps,and it covers parks and areas outside park boundaries. But that doesn't prevent growers to collect and plant as hobby. Collect and planting need special permit and there is only one here,and that is MT. We do have the Forest Dept of Conservation but how do they manage a purported area containing rare plants for development.If Mr Chien Lee read this perhaps he could shed some lights as he was in direct contact with the Forest dept...Robert

    If they are protected then whats the point of protection if they are going to demolish that area anyways?

    This is very much the same situation that goes on with Sarracenia in Florida. It's illegal to collect them, but fine for a bulldozer to plow over an entire field of Sarrs. .

    A little off topic- Robert, did you ever get a positive id on the Paphiopedilum? If it truly came from Mulu, it is most likely a P. sanderianum.

    I'm not saying you should do this at all, but personally, if I saw some rare, unique plants that were needlessly fascing destruction, I wouldn't much hesitate to save a few. Even if I keep them or not...atleast they don't all have to die. I don't like it when laws controdict themselves.

    Laws are contradictions most of the time, because there are simply too many of them! I would go make some cuttings, screw it.

    It's nice to see we all agree, for the most part.
    For those who have been around for a while, and do the list serve also, might remember when Ivan Snyder collected a Sarracenia purpurea form(burkii, I think-S. rosea to some) from a area that was going to get demolished, and some people just let into him for that.
    Dustin brought up a point: Is taking cuttings as bad as digging up a whole plant?
    Did you say Malesiana Tropicals can collect this plant, or did I misunderstand? If that is the case, that would not be the worse alternative if the other option is destruction...

    Cheers,

    Joe
