Legality and sunset hygro
 
If some one happens to own sunset hygro in NJ is legal to sell it within the state?

Mr. Limpet 03-23-2013 03:38 PM

I think it is illegal to transport it across state lines. Within the state should be OK.

Do you happen to know if this apply to sunset hygro only or just any hygro in general?

Sunset hygro is a variation of Hygrophila polysperma, so any variety of the plant would probably be subject to the same laws.

Axel,
what about the other hygro sp., say augustifolia or corymbosa? are those subjected to the same laws?

Axelrodi202 03-23-2013 04:49 PM

Not sure, but given how they seem to be commonly sold online I wouldn't think so. Would be a good idea to double check that though.

Axel,
thanks for the quick answer. Will check when I have time. :)

I was just doing some research on this same subject and Hygrophila polysperma is a federally restricted noxious weed and cannot be knowingly sold across state lines.

Here are a couple good pages to read on the subject:

Great that is what I thought. Now I just need to find a buyer!

since I am not hundred percent certain I decided to play it safe. My silver dollar shoal really enjoyed the sunset.

It's too bad it's been classed as such! ;-(. I received some from a member on here in a package a couple years ago, but only recently have I appreciated it's beauty. I think I am going to try to acquire other varieties.....
