    I am not afraid(brave words for a guy who was fined $2500).
    If you declare what they are , they can't nail you for smuggling(in my case, the sender did not wait for my import papers and wrote "children's toys" on the box). I also have an import permit, but if you do all these things, I think the worse they can do is just confescate them.

    I'm in Just send the seeds to the kid next door, and have them bring them to me

    The reason you can only post 10 pictures at a time is so you dont overload the server, it can only take so many pictures at a time before it freezes, that is why you must post only 10 at a time

    Schloaty,

    I think it's dead ringer for yours, except for the plant size.

    Regards,

    Joe

    Hi Joe,
    From what I understand, you need your permits to bring in seed also. Only problem are the CITES I plants/seed, and none of Choong's pictured plants are on the list, as you know.

    Lauderdale,
    As far as growing them here in south Florida-not unless you have an air conditioned grow chamber. However, I do keep hearing about a lowland ramispina colony that is not yet in cultivation...

    Schloaty,

    That plant of yours is a N. macfarlanei. I have two young plants from Cameron Highlands that produces pitchers like that. Somehow, those young plants in GH, seems to produce white small pitchers.

    Lauderdale,

    Highlanders can be grown in hot climate. I have a few mature N. sanguinea (that flowered and seeded). I also have a few young N. ramispina and N. macfarlanei and the following highlanders for 6 -12 months: N. hamata, N. eymae, N. glabrata, N. lowii, N. tentaculata, N. pilosa, N. stenophylla, N. faizalina, N. burbigeae, N. inermis and N. lavicola.

    I think you have an advantage over me, in that during the winter months, you can have cool climates. Over here it is 34C daytime temperature all year round.

    BTW, I just heard from Guenter that the N. ramispina seeds he brought back is germinating.
