The Cutting Exchange is not to be used for the exchange of patented or proprietary plant material or in violation of local and international regulations related to the sale, exchange, and transport of plant material including compliance with the local PLANT BREEDERS' RIGHTS of each party.
Please note as we do not have current patent information for every plant, the absence of patent information is NOT indicative of non-patented plant material: Site guests assume all responsibility for verifying a plant's patent status and observing applicable regulations.
Plant breeders, and their authorized agents, that wish to have their plants excluded from the Cutting Exchange are welcome to contact HMF.
Please also be aware that rooting cuttings can take considerable time and effort along with a fair amount of expertise (see glossary - Cuttings). In addition, the authenticity of the original plant material can be questionable.
Site guests are requested to NOT contact other HMF members about plant cuttings unless that member has explicitly chosen to participate in the plant cutting exchange. In addition, requests for plant cuttings knowingly in violation of government regulations are forbidden and subject to removal.
Sorry, but participation in the Cutting Exchange is limited to HMF registered members because of the need for communication between the interested parties.
