    Sorry - I'm confused. The shipper mailed you plants. You received plants. What is it that you think will happen next?

    If everything is exactly as shown in the above pics (& I didn't miss something important in the earlier posts**), it looks like the USPS had to choose between the two addresses on the package & they chose to ship to you. If indeed, that is the case, you need to decide whether you keep uninspected plants imported into USA or you forward them to an inspection station. The plants have not been to the inspection station yet as their sticker is still displayed on the package.

    ** Edit: unless those pics were sent by the seller/shipper to show you what is on it's way

    Well it has to clear Customs first. They should know from the green and yellow label that it goes to APHIS inspection afterwards but mistakes happen.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    I wander if the green/yellow label expedites the customs process. When I ordered my plants from czplants last September it sat in customs for about 6 business days. Is this a normal time frame when you are shipping completely legally? I had the phytosanitary certificate attached so they had to know they were plants at least. The only thing I can think of that allowed me to squeeze by was only having 10-12 plants in the package. Even worse three of the plants were Nepenthes (whoops).

    I actually had to do this twice more since he kept messing up my order. First time he forgot three plants. I went ahead and ordered three more plants since he had to ship again, but he forgot to ship the extra ones with the second package. Then randomly 2 months later I had a package show up from czplants with the remaining 3 extra plants. To be fair though he did pay the extra shipping and was quite nice, just a little aloof from translation issues lol.

    Plants in the US according to tracking # provided by seller! Now let's see if they pass inspection.

    Here's to hoping the best. In reality you shouldn't have any problems. Hell just waiting for it to get here is one of the hardest parts!

    Did you order anything else besides those Sarrs?

Be prepared to pay the extra, though, and they still need the copies of your permits.
    Actually, I'm not sure what I was thinking when I wrote that. Sorry, disregard!

    Anyone ever import sarrs with pitchers intact?
    I've imported many Nepenthes and Heliamphora which tend to be more sensitive than Sarracenia in terms of pitcher damage. So far, no problems. The inspection agents are typically very careful and understand the value of many of these plants. So far, they've been the friendliest government employees I've dealt with over the phone.
