    I found some carniverous plant suppliers that ship internationally. I have not checked into them yet, I just found them through this link:
    http://www.ii-okinawa.ne.jp/people....m#Enass

    Which was provided for me by the Canadian Carniverous Plant Society: (http://www2.ville.montreal.qc.ca/jar...opos/scapi.htm)

    So anyone who needs this info., do what you can with it and check into these people if you're interested in buying. I will personally continuing to find more people in Canada who sell
    Venus Flytraps because I don't want to pay a wealth of fees to get permits and what-not!

    http://www.peterpauls.com/ (but it appears they require a minimum for international orders)

    Before anyone orders from Peter Paul's I highly recommend they read this important information

    I would say the issue is not who ships internationally as there are many companies do. But as you mention.. the effort and time to get the proper import permit for your home country and then the expense of international shipping and document cost from the shipper.

    Canada does require the importer have an import permit. I believe it is available from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. No clue if there are any fees involved.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Oh OUCH! Thanks for the heads-up pyro. That must've been one site of Barry's pages I actually didn't read! See..this is why I said I haven't looked into them yet. Never take someone's word without research. Always research these things for yourself before moving on with it! :-)

    Disclaimer: I did not say Peter Paul's would be a good place to order from. Therefore I am not responsible for my careless post! LOL LOL [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Thanks for the tip Tony, I'll check into that. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Newbie,

    We like to look out for each other here so I posted that as a courtesy to all. I was not trying to direct it at you specifically.

    I have looked into the Canadian plant import regulations, and they would be almost impossible for the casual collector to comply with.

    On the other hand, I have had plant shipments that were opened at the border that were resealed and sent on their way.

    Back to the first hand, I have had one plant that was sent from the UK that was intercepted and incinerated.

    Of course that was only one out of dozens of packages I have sent and received.

    I have ordered plants from bestcarnivorousplants, cooks and lee's botanical garden without any problems.

    Southern Carnivores is a good site...

    The exchange rate is in the favor of Americans, and even for Canadians... Its really cheap with the exchange rate!

    I still haven't checked into what I would need to do or what permits I would need to get to import a VFT from the states. Sad thing is, whatever it is, it's probably the same rules that a business will have to follow if they import a large number on a frequent basis! But, I guess I'd better check that out before I actually place any orders outside of Canada.
    I am dealing with Chris right now, ordering a couple drosera from her. She does seem nice, and she's been quite helpful. I also approve of her garuntee that all plants will arrive alive! She did have some VFT's, but she lost them all about a month ago. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]
