    I'd put money on no. From what I understand, some of the Asian vendors have no qualms about selling flasks of these in the US.

    Well at very least the plants appear to be artificially propagated (and of course the roth x vietnamense is). Compared to ChineseGreen who sells collected plants.

    How does that plant "appear" to be artificially propagated?

    It appears to be a pathetic specimen regardless of where it was propagated.

    The size and cleaness of the leaves. Plus he also has vietnamense x roth, most taiwan vendors would carry flasks of both.

    Hanginaum is hard to grow, in my opinion, and they often look pathetic. Or at least mine do, until they die.

    The seller ended this listing early because of an error in the listing.

    Yeah, I felt compelled to warn them about the legal status of Paph. hangianum, and sent them a message this morning. Don't know if that's why the pulled it, but it's possible. I was assuming that they bought a flask of hangianum from Taiwan and thought that they were legal, since they were from flask... it's a confusing system, so it seemed like the right thing to warn them.

    WOW! Even if you got it for starting bid it would have been $30.00 for that "Pitiful..I just crammed it in a pot" looking specimen.
