Your best bet is from private sources, either friends or enthusiasts willing to part with seed. For the common species this will be no problem. Rarer plants you will have to secure in other ways (perhaps buying or trading?).

The ethics of collecting seed from wild sources is personal. However, should the plants be on public lands you may in fact be legally at risk, especially with the true rarities (C. californicum for example). So I'd check ahead of time about existing laws. On the other hand if you took a pod from a colony of C. acuale, I don't think the Cypripedium police will be knocking on your door...
