Legality and sunset hygro


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

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

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?

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.

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!

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.....
