    Advanced notice of proposed rule making. You have until March 10 to offer your opinion.

    This very well may affect your ability to swap plants!

    let them know how you feel

    Unless I'm missing something, these proposed rule changes only affect imporation across the US boundary. I didn't see anything that would affect swapping plants within the US. Keep in mind, this is in no way guaranteeing this will happen. This is the first stage of a long process of making additional regulations. This is nothing more than a proposal.

    I personally do alot of international trading with EU and other Americas, Mexico and Canada. It's not set in stone but why let it go by without comment when we know about it and are welcomed to post comments. Not to mention it would affect people like Tony who bring foreign plants into U.S, he would suffer and so would the customers who buy these imports from him. There are many other businesses in the same situation as him.

    Mostly it is importation restrictions, though there is some worrysome language concerning interstate movement of viable plant material.

    Will sticky this for a week..

    I have not read every single line but appears that it mostly deals with importing plants into the US. While I agree the situations they describe do exist. There is the potential that there could be significant issues in acquiring CP's from overseas from what I read. CP's are like a dust speck on a drop of water within the whole lake of ornamental horticulture imports. And if they decide to initially restrict import until they get around to assessing the potential risk of importing Nepenthes and other CPs..well.. there will be alot of unhappy campers in both the CP industry and hobby community.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    I agree, it has the potential to get out of hand without the input of the Hobby/Collector communities. I did post a comment adn encourage others to do so. While it may not be exceptionally dire, why not voice your opinion about the situation? It certainly couldn't hurt to let them know just how many depend on the ability to import plants for hobby or business.
