Steve Reed et al.:

In the interest of conservation of CP in their natural state and their
dwindling habitat, an unsolicited tip:

It's a good idea to check out the dealer(s) from whom you buy CP... Is
the stock of the spp. you purchase propagated (at least 2nd/3rd/etc.
generation from field collected)? Are ALL the species sold by that
dealer propagated? What is the dealer's overall attitude about field

Hint: check out books which have been written about the subject, e.g.
the INTRODUCTION ;)!!, by the owner/operator of the enterprise if they are
available, etc.... to find out whether you agree with their philosophies...

Get my drift?

Happy growing :)!
