    The eBay listing says: "The seller ended this listing early because the item is no longer available for sale."

    Sounds to me like the message may have gotten through. This could be good news.

    Let's hope the message got through in a good way. Meaning the seller wasn't just harassed into the underground to hook up with some violent Carolina Sarracenia Cartel. We'll know that happened if kids' grades start falling across the continent and they abandon old friends to hang with a new crowd. While getting into petty thievery and prostitution to support the soaring distilled water habits needed to grow illicit carnivorous plants. Eventually they'll find their way to the moral vacuum of Terraforums, where they'll learn about RO, the methadone of the CP addict. Hopefully, before it's too late.

    What's there to be confused about? ICPS has permits that allow interstate sales of these seeds. Bugweed and myself even said so in this thread earlier. The seedbank will supply you with the proper documentation so you can show you legally obtained the seeds.

    See http://icps.proboards105.com/index.c...play&thread=31

    or do as the Seedbank Page says:

    If you have any comments or questions about the Seed Bank, please feel free to contact John Brittnacher, the Seed Bank manager, at john@carnivorousplants.org.

    I am two minds about the issue. If the plants were home-grown and the seed collected, no foul; if there was poaching involved, that is entirely different. Now, in terms of CITES, would the purchase I made in years past of, say, Cephalotus from private parties overseas or in the US put me at odds with the law -- even though the species is now off of CITES listing?

    We operate under a Scientific Collecting Permit through Fish and Game and the permitting process itself is one step away from Jonathan Swift and the argument whether your poached eggs should be opened on the wide or narrow end of the shell. It was like dealing with the Soviets . . .

    Breaking the law is breaking the law unfortunately, how ever stupid the law is. However, what I'm worried about with CITEs is the way it makes all the plants stay in one location. If the plants are not widespread in cultivation, and some natural disaster wipes out there natural home, what then? The only reason lots of people want to poach them from the wild is because they're not common in cultivation, so although restricting how you can sell seeds is maybe helping, in the long run it's just making them more rarer in cultivation, so people who do get away with poaching are making more money off them, and will want to do it more. Which is REALLY helping the situation.

    If a lot of the seeds and plants were in cultivation, then they'd be worth no more than any other sarr, so a lot of the poaching would go down, because who would go to the trouble of poaching 'common' plants?

    Just my two cents worth
