Re: Plant Collection quest
I was in San Diego last week and I picked up an orchid from Andys orchids. Andy told about how when he was younger he brought about a 1000 species in from mexico into the hobby that had not yet been known to collectors. My goal is to bring in plants that don't exist in the hobby and propagate them in my green house so everyone can have some. I read a couple of guide on this subject and one rule was only take plants that are destined to dye, for example an orchid or marcgravia that is on a fallen branch, or if not leave enough of the plant for it to regrow.
