Legality of Selling Terrariums

plantinellen(5)February 10, 2009

I love making terrariums. And because I live on wooded property, I have lots of moss, ferns and related plants handy with which to make them. My question is: If I sell terrariums with my home-grown plants at a yard sale or craft show, am I breaking any laws? I know my property isn't home to any endangered mosses or ferns...I'd be using pretty common plants.

Check with your local fish and wildlife (or similar government agency) and they can tell you if it is legal to collect plants from your property.

If you aren't familiar with I reccomend checking it out to see all the terrariums users sell on there. Most of them are novice-level but it's interesting to see!
