    I don't remember ever signing up for email sales lists but periodically I get a few from various people (don't ask me how they got my email address)...got one today from this guy Lee Moore for imported plants. Now, I'm quite uninterested in getting plants that have freshly been through customs (I prefer them home grown and undisturbed), but anyone ever hear of this guy?

    Didn't I hear or read something about the Peruvian government confiscating hundreds of kovachii plants and locking them in a secure facility? Are these the same kovachii plants that Lee Moore paid to have people collect from the wild?

    I was told when I was in peru that the goverment had siezed around 50 plants. Not sure if they were Lee Moores.

    Goodness, we have a bunch of youngsters here ;) . Lee Moore has a long and colorful history of run-ins with the law in orchids and in antiquities, and a Cattleya species named after him.

    You can read about him in Susan Orleans book Orchid Thief.

    No... I don't see what you see, please enlighten us.

    The raid I was referring to happened in Peru.
