    Are you sure? If so, that means I could send internationally... Could you point me to where you got this information from?

    I'd rather not break any laws.

    Contact your local Ag Agency people and ask them. It's a simple enough task. Don't just trust what anyone here tells you - go to the agency whose job it is to inform people and apply the regulations!

    Terraforums does not condone or encourage breaking laws Any posts suggesting such have been removed.

    Import requirements vary from country to country. Many require phytosanitary certificates to accompany shipments of plants and seeds. Some don't. Some require additional certificates for specific pests and diseases. Typically it is up to the importer to be aware of the laws governing imports to their countries as it is the importer who is breaking the laws of their respective countries. However that does not mean the exporter is immune from criminal investigation through InterPol (International Criminal Police Organisation).

    CITES is an International Treaty thus the requirements are basically the same - if the countries have signed into the treaty then export permits are required to ship them out and import permits are required to ship CITES listed specie into the country.

    The enforcing authority in the United States is the Fish and Wildlife Services (FWS)

    A brochure on CITES Permits and Licenses from the FWS is available here:
    http://www.fws.gov/international/pdf...cates-2013.pdf

    If you have any question contact the FWS. Contact information can be found in the above brochure or the FWS website.

    A list of the CITES species can be found here:
    http://www.cites.org/eng/app/appendices.php

    Note at this time only Nepenthes raja and N. khasiana are listed as Appendix I species - plants, derivatives or any parts can not be imported/exported without permits. Hybrids of these species are exempt. All other species of Nepenthes are list under Appendix II which requires permits with exceptions:

    All parts and derivatives, except:
    a) seeds (including seedpods of Orchidaceae), spores and pollen (including pollinia). The exemption does not apply to seeds from Cactaceae spp. exported from Mexico, and to seeds from Beccariophoenixmadagascariensis and Neodypsis decaryi exported from Madagascar;
    b) seedling or tissue cultures obtained in vitro, in solid or liquid media, transported in sterile containers;
    c) cut flowers of artificially propagated plants;
    d) fruits, and parts and derivatives thereof, of naturalized or artificially propagated plants of the genus Vanilla (Orchidaceae) and of the family Cactaceae;
    e) stems, flowers, and parts and derivatives thereof, of naturalized or artificially propagated plants of the genera Opuntia subgenus Opuntia and Selenicereus (Cactaceae); and
    f) finished products of Euphorbia antisyphilitica packaged and ready for retail trade.

    The entire text of the CITES convention is available here:

    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
