    just a thought

    ive been thinking of way to get pamerida into the usa and ive came up with one good 1
    ok so first you get a roridula with pamerida mating on it in the spring and summer in late summer and ship it in a large clear plastic bag so the pamerida will not leave the roridula. the mating pamerida lay their eggs in the bark of roridula so they should be ok for a couple weeks(maby). but even if the roridula dies some of the eggs will survive(maby) so just leave the roridula next to a live roridula so the bugs will "infect" the live roridula.
    thanks

    If your talking about the insect Pameridea that has a symbiotic relationship with Roridula, it probably isn't allowed in the U.S for a good reason; whether it be because it is an invasive species or because of some other reason.

    I wouldn't try anything like this. You could potentially cause some kind of disaster. lol

    First of all, why are you trying to get Pameridea into the US? o.o

    I'm guessing so he can imitate the natural symbiotic relationship it shares with Roridula.
    Or in other words, just for kicks.

    ya i like growing roridula. and my guess they would probly be happier with the natural partners. also they cant live off of roridula.

    I don't know...I don't think it's a good idea. Besides, how will it be happier? I mean, sure, they have a relationship in the wild, but I doubt it'll be grow better with it.
