    If you got caught with an illegal Royal Red (as if) you could just say it was a Red Dragon-they are just the same except the leaves stay more rosetted: http://www.cpuk.org.uk/photos/1999/vft-royalred.jpg

    Why not put a patent on a plant you spend years developing something that is different from anything else on the market?? It cost alot of time, effort and money to develop something new and unusual. Think about the generations of plants that need to be raised and the numbers of plants before that special something HOPEFULLY comes along. How would you feel as soon as you released some, every commercial nursery and piles of hobbiest massed produced them and basically you lost the well earned income from your efforts?? Royal red and Red dragon do not look the same, although they are similar. Also bear in mind that Royal red was developed and registered several years or so before Red dragon existed.

    Ohh I never knew that. I was just saying it was kind of a stupid idea that a plant is patented. Usually patents are on everyday items such as lawn mowers and computers and even little kids toys. That's all I was saying and No I wouldn't want all of my money going down the drain and out of my pocket if I created a new CP. I just may do some research and do that! Think of this a VFT and a Sundew. I would name it Drosera Musipula. :biggrin: [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Think of that! A really effective bug catcher!

    NG< talk to us after youv'e got your degree in advanced genetics!

    Tony, My problem with patenting a plant is pretty simple, I am not in this hobby to make a butt load of money, I grow CP's because I love them, and I give most of my excess away to people just starting up, and people who help me in return...

    Now, I do understand these guys made an investment, good for them, but I'' tell you what, when I buy something it's mine, and if it comes with the abilitiy to reproduce itself, and I feel like selling, then I guess I will just charge whoever buys it for the water, soil, and air and TIME of MINE that went into it...

    I understand great people like you and phil and jeff make a living in this as an Industry, and I think that's great... I don't know.. there are hundreds if not thousands of cultivars registered out there that don't have patents applied to them, people love the hobby, and love to share their creations, the patent makes me think the only reason the plant was created was to make money... and that just doesn't sit with me well...

    And I do draw a distinction between people like you and the ********** guys, and the people who patented this plant, don't get me wrong, I am not against commercial gain, I just question the motives of the creators of this plant in this instance...

    Nep G i would just like to say i am sorry for having a go at you before. It was all my fault you didn't do anything...you see that day i went shopping and i saw 26 dead flytraps on the clearance shelf and i checked them and their rhyzomes were all mushy and smelly and then i read somewhere in one of your posts that you take pitcher plants and sphagum from a natural bog and i just got a bit ticked off-i mean i over reacted. Because you said you were going to have a nursury and sell cp's right,well i guess then when you are producing cp's in mass production you can put back the cp's you took from the bog. I was thinking and i think it would be really awsome if you had your bog so it was like out the front of your cp store-so customers could walk past the bog and see all these pitcher plants growing in a natural bog before they enter your cp nursury-i mean it would be fantastic! No other cp store in the world would have anything like that-i think you have potential as a cp grower cause you ask a lot of questions,and not supid ones like me but really though provoking ones. I was wondering if i would beable to post you a rrvft?

    Mondo,I am still wondering are you still angry with me? i am willing to make a truce of peace if you are. Anyways respond back to me on that. now what do you mean by posting me a Royal Red? I have only took two S.Purpureaspp.Pureas from my bog. The sphagnum really dosn't matter since I take it in small quantities. The spot I took out a few weeks ago has already almost filled up again with new Spagnum. So Yes I do care about the bog. I would never ever try to de-plant and de-Spagnum moss it. Thanks Nep.G.
