    It's like walking out a door and discovering it's a window.

    Watched it and appreciate your posting the link. The video does start out where you ask yourself- why am I watching a video of a young child identify car makes/models??

    But then it gets to the good stuff....

    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img] UGH. That's FlyTrapFarms. For your information, they FIELD COLLECT. I know this for a fact as I had a rather heated exchange with them a year or so ago over it. They have "farmers" who go out and collect the plants and bring the plants to them.

    Now that's not to say ALL the plants they sell are field collected. But they make no bones about what they are doing. If you notice on their web site, most of what they sell are CPs native to their area. And you'll notice their website does not have a disclaimer stating their plants are all from TC or their own propagated seed.

    They say the "farmers" have been doing this for generations and that they have permits to collect. But the fact is, even with a permit, FlytrapFarms has no idea exactly where the plants came from that the "farmers" bring in. Maybe legally collected...maybe not.

    Personally I don't agree with the practice when other nurseries use TC plants.
