    Actually it did not take any paper work on my end. He said he has shipped to the US before and placed "seeds" on the box and never had any problem.
    Actually he offered me a second chance on the one that I missed being high bidder on. I decided to take it, so I ended up with 2 tubulars.
    I got them a week or so ago. They were Drosera erythrorhiza ssp squamosa and Drosera erythrorhiza ssp squamosa "Laterite Form". I think the plant is awesome and thought I better take the second one in case I have a problem, as I might have to wait 2 years to get it again.
    Here are the awesome pics of this plant:



    Maybe a pic I found off the web would be better.

    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.

    Tony,
    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.

    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.
