Hi Joe and friends
I share your view of this...
Unfortunatly,the natural habitat isdown grading
step by step,
and if of course we have to do all what we can
to stop
this,we probably don't be able to do it
really..!Money today have all the rights ..So if laterally collectors can do
preservation work with personal collection,lot
of species probably will be saving as they probably not in the natural
habitat.Of course i prefer see an aroid growing in the deep forest,but i prefer
see it in a greenhouse that don't see it anymore.If you see plants like
aroid,how many peoples are really interesting about them?I really wonder if we
are really more than a thousand....when i say 'interesting',i want to say people
who want to grow many aroid,not only the few
commercialy plants in the market!. Iamagine that
a really rare plant is present in 10% of the collection(that is a highly
unprobable average,because too high!),what mean only 100 plants out of the
nature?I really think that our work is a conservatory work.
