    Wasn't aware Ron had already run tests. I'd take his advice, if I were you.

    As for customs, you'll have to look at obtaining import permits. Your department of agriculture equivalent should be able to help. Most nurseries are fairly willing to ship, if you have the proper permits. (You'll also have to pay for a photosanitary certificate, in all likelihood), so it may get pricey.

    Do you guys use dry lfs? What are your soil mixes?

    For alpina, I'm using long-fibered sphagnum but it isn't doing much. It has put out one leaf in two months. I am in the same conundrum as you: I can't get live sphagnum.

    Hmm maybe its too wet.

    Ok guys one more question I grow u. Jamesoniana. I had it in peat and it survived pretty well but didn't look great. I recently potted it in a mix of coconut husk, perlite and some lfs from ep. The lfs started growing but its original leaves rotted. Today I noticed two new stolons growing on opposite ends of the sphagnum. Does this mean it is in fact not dead but thriving?

    What are its dormancy requirements and during which season?
