    Unhappy

    jimscott and I are trying to get some plants shipped to Hawaii, but they have a few rules. The one thats giving us a hard time is that they can't be shipped with soil.

    My question is, is peat, LFS and other CP mediums considered soil?

    Heres the site with the information...

    I would think thst peat would be considered soil. I don't think that LFS would be though. What plants are you shipping and can they be shipped bare root with a damp parper towel?

    I was thinking along the lines of D. dielsiana, capensis, filiformis, aliciae, as well as some terrestrial Utrics (livida, sandersonni, etc...)

    I also live in Hawaii, so I know how difficult it is to bring plants into the State. But that's as it should be because there are already too many alien species that have made their way into the wild and are crowding out the native species, many of which are now endangered. All imported plants have to be inspected. I suggest calling the State Plant Quarantine Station at (808) 832-0566 to find out exactly what's okay and what's not.

    Tropics is it true that Neps have been introduced into the wild in Hawaii? And on what islands? Have you ever seen them? Hmm If so I know I'll be visiting to take pictures if I ever get to Hawaii.

    I would tell the person that they have to set up everything that's needed to get the plant.
