Wild Seed Collecting

Wild collecting seeds can damage wild populations of carnivorous plants. However there are situations where it is legal and ethical to collect a small amount of seed to use as stock to help preserve species.

Wild Plant Collecting

Collecting plants on private property without permission is theft. There are also regulations on collecting plants on state and federal property. In many National Forests, it is generally illegal to disturb plants in wetlands."
