Luckily you didn't have any trouble. (read ie have your package confiscated and get a nice big fine)
Tubers and I believe even seeds, although I would have to double check on that one, require an import permit from USDA. Both require a phytosanitary certificate from the country of origin.
Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
There was some different papers attached to the box. Not sure what they were, did not really check. I was happy they arrived, and the box was thrown out after unpacking.
I hope I did not do anything improperly. Since I had no idea what I needed. I contacted 2 agencies, forget who they were now, 1 responded and told me to look at a different site. Took a look around and had no clue.
I guess I will not do that again, just in case.

Such information supplied by a seller should never be taken as gospel. Of course they will tell you what you want and need to hear as long as they get their money.Originally Posted by [b
I've no doubt that the seller would have sent tubers to the US without the proper paperwork in the past. Placing the declaration of "seeds" on the box is the easy, illegal and deceptive way of "smuggling" live plants into the country and will be viewed by the authorities as a more serious offence than if no declaration was placed on the package at all. The seller has just been lucky that none of his packages have been intercepted in the past, that's why he hasn't had any problems.
As Tony said, you were lucky this time. Good luck with the tubers and I hope they grow well. They should begin the break dormancy within the next month or so- many of mine as just beginning now.
