Hi Nick,

Are you sure you need a permit. In Georgia, you need a permit to take
protected plants from the wild, not to grow protected plants. Permits are
issued if you prove that you are rescuing plants and get written permission
from the owner. I have such a permit to rescue Cyp. acaule. All
Sarracenia that are native to Georgia are protected in Georgia but you can
grow them if you grow them from seed or get plants from a person or business
that grows them (and those plants are not wild collected). I assume the
same is true for the two federally protected plants, although I'm sure the
government bureaucracy will drive you insane first.
