    Per request of bidder, I've added (admittedly bad) photos to my "Mature Drosophyllum - Local Pick up Only" Auction.
    Growing CP since 1975. Succeeding (more or less) since 1990.

    Edit: This was moved from the auction forum. I've asked below that this whole discussion be deleted at this point, since half is now blank. Probably this doesn't make sense out of context. It was in response to a post suggesting that botanical gardens didn't really care if people remove material such as seeds, or even took cuttings. Although the post was out of place, it seemed that it needed a response.

    I think this is the wrong place for this discussion, and hopefully one of the administrators can relocate it. The policy of the SFBG is that plant material should not be removed. I got these at least 100 ft outside the gates and perhaps it's still technically on their grounds? I don't know. Regardless, taking cuttings there is definitely not OK. It's considered vandalism. Removing fruits and seeds that are attached to the plant still, particularly if it alters the appearance of the plant, is the same as taking cuttings in my opinion. Fallen fruit and seeds is still not technically OK, inside the garden. The one time I've done this where I'm very public about it is for the variegated form of Passiflora membranacea, a pretty rare plant, which was dropping fruits on the ground. I let the SFBG know that I had taken a couple fruits, and in this case I was told that they had no interest in that variety of the species (mainly because it was slow to bloom). I think the important thing is when trading, selling or giving away plants and seeds is to be very honest about where they come from, where possible. They main exception would be a private individual who wants to maintain anonymity. If it's from a nursery or a botanical garden (even if questionable) it's important to let people know the source.

    My personal policy is to not profit from plants taken from a questionable source. I make a partial exception for the variegated Passiflora membranacea, which I sell as plants (and give away as seeds) because I have let them know that I took the fallen fruit.

    I'm hoping one of the administrators can move a discussion out of a thread I started, or delete it if it's not possible to move it. The thread: "3 Furcraea parmentieri bulbils"

    Done. Quickest way is to use the "Report Post" button (triangle with exclamation mark) on the bottom left of a post.

    Thanks. Probably best to delete it completely at this point, as the post I was responding to is now blank. The other option is to have a bunch of empty posts...

    I'm just going to add that it also depends on the botanical garden that you're at when it comes to fallen fruit / seeds, down here we have a Fruit and spice garden where anything that's on the ground is fair game - at least, according to the head gardener and manager

    The forum software moves posts and inserts them in chronological order. It made sense when one got to your post requesting the move of non-bid posts which is why I didn't see the need to add a link. Now with blank post it makes little sense. If people would follow the rules and not post non-bid messages in the auction threads in the first place we wouldn't have this mess. I'll leave it as is as a reminder to all involved (me included).

    Reminders:

    Discussion/Requests Here - Bids ONLY in the Auction Threads

    **No bids (posts) can be edited and changed once posted; contact a moderator if you need to make a change on your listing. You may bid as often as you wish. No bids will be valid past stated auction ending time.
