Default Plant Collection quest

Hey guys,

Im thinking of planning a plant and orchid collection quest to Costa Rica, Ecuador, Mexico or any tropical south/central american country to bring back to my greenhouse here in socal to start propagation, im already aware of import permits to bring back more than 12 plants. Are there any other permits I should be aware of. I don't know much about this stuff so forgive me for my ignorance.

Thanks

Why do you want to bring plants into the country? What plants do you want?

Look up Orchid Conservation Alliance, they periodically do South America and Central America trips specifically to look at orchids.

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.

When he did that CITES wasn’t active.

I don’t want to discourage you from growing uncommon species to either the terrarium/frog hobby or orchid hobby. I have some questions you should ask yourself.

Why aren’t these species more common in the hobby?

Are there species already in the hobby(s) that are uncommon in the US that are attainable and agreeable to propagation?
