Glad to know we are exporting something other than coal and cattle
oh heck no.
the only wild fly trap's left are in a 100km radius of wilmington, north carolina.
i didnt send fly trap seeds from oz, i sent seed from pinguicula sethos (mexican butterwort) and also Drosera Capensis (sticky sundews from africa)
its legal to send or receive almost any type of seed, but you cant export/import live plants or live plant tissue without C.I.T.E.S permit
ping sethos. its leaves feel like melted butter, small bugs get stuck and the plant basically drools on them.
drosera capensis, the sundew. this plant gave the idea for "fly paper"
the bug lands and gets stuck by the dew drops on the end of each of the hairs.
it then stimulates the red hairs when struggling, and the leaf actually curls, twists, and wraps its way around a bug over a short period (maybe an hour?)
