    Plant Imports

    I don't know how to import plants!!!

    I found this nursery that sells really cheap plants, but I'm supposed to handle the import process. I'm not going to be getting anything that's under CITES, just some cephs and a cobra. They sell Phytosanitary and CITES permits at the website, but I don't which I should get. How do I import stuff without breaking the super confusing laws?

    thanks.

    Whatever they are selling is no good here. You need your USDA/APHIS import permits. It's kind nonsensical to import Darlingtonia and Cephalotus anyway. There are many domestic sources for both genera.

    Johnny is right: why jump through all the hoops (tedious, complicated and expensive) when you can buy both genera here in the US from numerous sources??

    Shipping and permit costs will make importing more expensive.

    They won't be that cheap by the time you've paid for everything! (documentation, phyto certificates, shipping, etc) But hey, go for it if you think that is going to be a deal.

    i guess it probably won't be worth it. It's just that there are not a lot of domestic sellers of these plants.

    Tell you what; I will give you a young Cephalotus for the cost of shipping. At least then you will be spared the needless pain of importing from Europe.
