Trying to be responsible in my orchid acquisitions and was reading up on and trying to make sense of CITES. Fell down the internet search rabbit hole and found this very interesting case study of an orchid import gone wrong:


Thought it was interesting and worth sharing.

George & Kathy were good friends and longtime suppliers of hard-to-find plants.

Oh, that brings back memories. Pk was exported for years before Michael tried to have it named. George could have been a little more discreet. CITES enforcement is convoluted and ridiculous.
