    Hey NaN, any idea what they define as "taxon" ie. does that mean 50 total seeds of Drosera spp. or of just one species? I'm assuming the former.

    Sorry to get a bit off topic.

    Basically 50 seeds of one species (or whatever the weight limit is. 50 coconuts is kind of bulky and not really a small seed lot). Each species must be clearly labeled on the packets.

    Guess I really didn't break the law then without a phytosanitary certificate for seeds. Good to know, it's cheaper!

    The plants must be shipped a valid customs declaration, CITES (where applicable), copy of your 587 and phytosanitary certificates. The plants must be free of pests and disease and the roots free of any medium including Sphagnum moss or they won't pass quarantine. Again you don't need a CITES permit if the plant is Tissue Culture propagated and still in the flask.

    Seeds in quantities greater than 50 per taxon also require a phytosanitary certificate.


    CITES import permit is $90.

    Your State may require additional permits.

    Think you can get away with a misleading customs declaration? Read on.



    thank you for your reply. I feel now as though I need to get the 587, and am going through some the several stages to do so
    (create account, authenticate account, apply for permit, etc.)
    my plant has finally shipped~

    You need to have the permit lined up before they ship so the shipper can put the phyto ticket and the permit sticker the USDA sends you on the box - you send the sticker to the shipper BEFORE they ship. Good luck - there's a chance you MAY get the box anyway.

    As Swords noted, all of the permit details are required before the plant is shipped ....

    well, i got my package, minus the main plant.
    destroyed because of chrysomphalus sp.


    another plant had chrysomphalus aonidium and was treated with imidacloprid .03% and captam .01% dip for 5 minutes
