I do not think so. The only CP's which are regullary collected for
sale are VFT's, maybe Sarracenias (Both more for the "garden
center-market") and Australian Sundews (for the collector-market).
In the first cases collecting unfortunately seems to be cheaper than
propagation, in the last case plants are difficult to propagate but
there seems to be a demand among collectors.
