A Message from the NASC board....
It has come to the attention of NASC that an individual not affiliated with NASC took plants for their own personal use from an ongoing rescue at a site in Mississippi that NASC was asked to relocate plants from.
This person was not acting on behalf of NASC and we must consider the plants in question to be obtained illegally and without the permission of NASC or the property owner. It has been reported to members of NASC that this person may be selling the plants. Please be aware that any s. alata posted for sale or even being given away could be poached plants.
We want to state for the record that any and all plants that were taken by this person are considered NOT to be the property of NASC. We will not be responsible for any repercussions that may arise as a result of this person's actions.
