    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    I read it in the AVA website that plants from peninsula M'sia are allowed... also since we are able to bring in groceries like fresh vegetables from M'sia, I don't see y we can't bring in a plant.

    Neps are under CITES so you'll need a CITES import cert and phytosanitory cert. There's no difference in you ordering, they send and you bringing in a nep yourself.

    See:AVA conditions and regulations

    Otherwise I'll be going to Malesiana to hand-pick some neps to bring home! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    in another page of the AVA website they said that plants from west malaysia can be brought back. Thats where im am(KL). So far ive bought an N mirabilis 'green' for S$5 and a two plants in one pot , one plant has green pitchers and 1 plant has BLACK pitchers with some very hard to see specks. That cost S$14.
    ive broght back neps by bus and other kinds of cps by car so it should be ok

    Attached is an extract of FAQ on the AVA websites that mentioned the only exemption of regulation for plant importation from West Malaysia, however it seems that CITES permit requirement is still applicable.

    Q1: What are the regulations regarding the import of plants?
    A:
    The import of plants is regulated by the Phytosanitary and Plant Quarantine Section of AVA.

    Plants can be imported into Singapore subject to the following requirements.

    West Malaysia: Presently there is no restriction. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] wezx [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Countries other than from South Africa Tropic: If the plant is imported without soil or growing medium (bare-rooted), a phytosannnitory certificate is required from the country of origin, declaring that the soil or growing medium is treated with the pesticides stated in the permit. If the plant is imported with soil or growing/potting medium (peat moss etc), an AVA Import Permit is required. The permit costs $18 and is valid for one consignment only and can be used within.

    3 months. This permit should be acquired prior to import.

    Countries from South America Tropic: The import of soil/other growing medium or plants with soil/growing medium is not allowed. In addition to an AVA Import permit, the phytosanitary certificate form the country of origin should state that "The plants are free from South American Leaf Blight (Microcyclus ulei) or produced in regions free from South American Leaf Blight.

    In addition to the above conditions, all plants will be subjected to a post-entry inspection by AVA.

    For CITES controlled plants (Endangered plants), a CITES permit is required for import.

    West Malaysia, - - does that include places like Malacca and KL? ?
    Because if anyone is going to KL I saw on the news that pitcher plants are very popular for Chinese New Year. They showed a picture of a large clump of ground pitchers from Ampullaria in a pot. If anyone goes and could buy one for me,......I'll pay you back of course,........

    Cindy - - You can go to Malesiana tropicals and hand pick your plants since they issue all the required certificates etc for import. You just need to plan ahead/liase with them to get the certificates available, depending on the plants you buy. My working colleague who lives in Kuching, once went personally to Malesiana tropicals and picked up my order. Unfortunately she doesn't work with me now.

    Happy new year, and happy growing, Neil.
    A 'pitcher gallery' is where the art is drawn by Mother Nature and a 'pitcher says a thousand words'.

    Yes, West Malaysia = Peninsula Malaysia
    Sabah and Sarawak = East Malaysia

    Malesiana tropicals is in East Malaysia, so technically it is subjected to AVA rules, however you can land at Senai Airport in Johore by Air Asia? and come to Singapore by land transport. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]
