While reading this thread today: Short notice Giveway 24 hrs - Utricularia pubescens + Microgramma vaccinifolia I found RSS's comments saying:
"Yep CA is California, they are actually starting to enforce plant shipment laws and without all those fancy nursery certs good luck getting plant materials via mail anymore The last few packages we tried were returned to us after a friendly phone call from CA asking if they could open the box to inspect it. Returning boxes take 2-4 weeks to get back to us.
Just not worth all the effort, they did say you could drive any (legal) plant material over the state lines and that was just fine. You just can not mail it over..... "
So I am wondering what effect this will have on the upcoming auction and also on our sellers here at TF? I have not been active recently as a vendor here but I expect to be in the future. Are some of us going to have to post the words "Sorry. No bids to growers in the state of California"? I am also wondering if others have had similar experiences to the ones RSS has had recently?
