    Seriously? That's amazing. Thanks so much!

    I'll pm you.

    Super generous Paul! Love people like you in the hobby.

    I understand where you are coming, but from a slightly different standpoint. I would love to import different clones of cephalotus but it is extremely difficult. Both parties have lots of work to do to accomplish the feat. Most are unwilling to even consider it.

    It's crazy to import something you can get domestically. The phytosanitary certificates will probably cost you around $40 (range from $20 to $200 USD depending on the country) and shipping about the same. And if the paperwork is not correct the shipment could be delayed up to 6 weeks in Customs and Agriculture Quarantine. The shipment could get seized or destroyed too. And with the budget sequestration you have less inspectors working shorter hours which will mean more delays.

    Darlingtonia is available from at least three of the online vendors on the West Coast. There are two vendors of Cephalotus that I know of in the US. Comb through the posts on Cephalotus and the recent ICPS conference. Or join the ICPS listserv and make a polite inquiry there. They subscribe to the list or somewhere will give you contact information.

    Ryan, also keep in mind that cheap does not equal good.

    You should also keep in mind that most reliable nurseries abroad are reluctant to ever export Cephalotus due to the genus' tendency to quickly die in transit.

    Thanks for your insights guys. I see now that It would be best to get stuff domestically. Sometimes I wish I lived in Europe though...
