Seed and plant exchange

11 posts in this topic

Hello all,

as I know several of our members are not just interested in taxonomy of ant plants, but also grow them, I thought that it's nice to have a little corner where we can offer or search seeds or plants.

 

In order to keep level of commercialization as low as possible I thought about the following rules, however I'm open to feedback if you would like to have them modified:

 

  • Members only - the exchange area is visible to members only.
  • No replies - In order to avoid any negotiations in public, replies are not possible. If a member offers seeds or plants, you have to contact this member privately. There is a private messaging functionality integrated into the forum software.
  • => I opened the section for replies.

 

 

 

All the best

Andreas

when you are  not in their  growing area , difficult  to see these plants 'in situ'  , just one solution , trade or swap  ;)

 

for me ANDREAS  these rules are OK.

I'm on several plant and animal forums and I like the ability for people to post replies.  This avoids having to repeat the same response to questions over and over again.  However, a rule to keep negotiations restricted to a private message could be in affect.

Dear Acro,

the idea is to keep the level of commercialisation low on this forum.

Also, when 2 members interact about a swap or trade, that's their business IMHO.

All the best

It was just a suggestion and it's your forum, so do things however you like.  But remember, you did ask for feedback.

 

I will add that the most active plant and animal forums (I am a member of) have very active sale/trade/free sections. 

 

I'm just offering ideas to help the ant plant forum grow and thrive.  I think that's what we all want.

Ok, I just opened threads here for replies.

However, I'd still ask to restrict replies to topics of general interest.

 

PLEASE, NO NEGOTIATIONS OR CONVERSATIONS THAT ARE ONLY OF INTEREST FOR THE TWO PARTIES INVOLVED HERE!!!

Hi, 

 

Just thought id ask a stupid question. What are the laws/rules if some one from an other country would like to swap fruits with some one in Australia? I thought quarantine laws wouldn't allow this or at least make it difficult to do so. Can some one please (from Australia) set me straight about this matter. Thanks

here in FRANCE ( may be in europe) no problem for the drupe or seeds  swap :) ,   just respected the CITES rules on the protected plantes , and their state of health ( no problem for drupe or seeds )

 

I do not know  if some ant plant are on the CITES I -II- III

 

see here to have an idea

The ICON database (next) lists all plants allowed into Australia. If a species is not on the list then special application must be made which is expensive and can be slow.

There are also restrictions between Western Australia and all other States due to its differing climate in the south. That is winter rains.

it is a import rules  not the export rules .

 

I noted that the seeds to  hydnophytum formicarum  and myrmecodia tuberosa is not concerned .

 

for one  or 2 drupe these rules are effective ?

The Cactaceae and Orchidaceae families, as well as the genus Nepenthes are included in the IInd annex of CITES (exepted species included in the Ist annex).

 

Since some ant-plants are known from these families, you have to respect CITES rules for these plants. For IInd annex's plants, a cession certificate with the list of plants and the prove that they are not poached in nature is sufficient for intra-UE exchanges.
