"Harvesting"?

No plants out of the wild should be harvested. Period. That implies collecting way more than you'd need for yourself. Leave the material where you found it.

Collecting a small amount for yourself - and placing it in a grow out area for an extended period? Safer. A tad more sustainable as well.

I've read about mountainsides that have, literally, had their moss rolled up and "harvested". That disgusts me.
