    I am probably mistaken on CITES for seed from appendix II plants. I will have a look at it later today.

    I'm Sure little bits can be sent/recieved no problem, but I was planning on sending something a little larger!
    Where would I get the plants inspected? Do the same people issue the phytosanitary certificate? ?
    Suppose this is gonna be more tricky than its worth!!

    All Sarracenia are on CITES. The three mentioned above are on CITES I, whereas the rest are on CITES II. Any plant material needs phytosanitary certificates from the country of origin as well as CITES permits. Getting permits for CITES II plants is fairly straightforward, but can take some time and will cost you, as will phytosanitary certificates. CITES I plants are much more difficult to get permits for. It is much easier if they have been tissue cultured. Seeds are exempt from CITES II restrictions, but I think CITES I seeds are still covered. This is why I only sent plants within Europe, as you don't generally need any documentation. And yes, if you have been sending plants abroad without all the required documentation you have been breaking the law. A lot of people do it, but it doesn't make it right.
