Do we need a Nursery License to sell plants online?


So, my Salvinia has been growing like wild fire. So i posted some of them on ebay to get rid of them. Someone, an ebay buyer, messages me that he is going to report me for illegal plant sales if i don't take it down.

I'm not too familar with ebay, but when i listed it i listed it under pets > decorations > live plants. It didn't ask me for a license.

So do i need a license? do we all need a license? cause i shop here all the time O.o.

Should i take my auction down?

I should just stick to this site, lol but not one ever wants salvinia. And now i'm curious, are we all breaking the law O.o =<......

Noxious Weed Information:
Salvinia minima Baker

The related entities italicized and indented above are listed by the U.S. federal government or a state. Common names are from state and federal lists. Click on a place name to get a complete noxious weed list for that location, or click here for a composite list of all Federal and State Noxious Weeds.

Florida:
Salvinia
Prohibited aquatic plant, Class 11
North Carolina:
Salvinia
water fern Class A noxious weed2
Texas:
Salvinia
salvinia Noxious plant

1 excluding S. minima
2 all except S. minima

Looks like allowed everywhere but texas?

or am i reading it wrong? lol

SAMO5 salvinia
Salvinia molesta
US, STATE, Cal-IPC
L48 (I), HI (I)


U.S. Plant Protection and Quarantine. Federal noxious weed list (1 May 2010). USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, Washington, DC.
USDA APHIS Plant Protection and Quarantine. Federal domestic quarantines (24 May 2006). USDA APHIS Plant Protection and Quarantine, Washington, DC

So it's federally noxious not just noxious for certain states
