That's good to know, but I worry a little about "Seed would be sent to an APHIS plant inspection station" since transit time is important for seed like Amorphophallus. I hope they don't introduce a lethal delay.

For those unhappy with the current phytosanitary

seed into the US there is hope on the horizon per the GMPRO
greEn-MAIL I just recieved:

Seed may become easier to import. USDA's APHIS has proposed
allowing the importation of small amounts of seed with
permits instead of phytosanitary certificates. APHIS would
issue permits that specify the import conditions for
eligible seed shipments. Seed would be sent to an APHIS
plant inspection station to ensure compliance with the
permit conditions. These changes would make it easier for
individual importers, horticultural societies, arboreta and
small businesses that have previously had difficulty
obtaining phytosanitary certificates from the country of
origin. Consideration will be given to comments sent to
APHIS by June 28. http://www.aphis.usda.gov/lpa/news/2004/04/smlseed_ppq.html
