Title: Re: [Aroid-l] Denmark  - import issues
In order to LEGALLY bring plant material into the US, you need either a Plant Import Permit plus a Phytosanitary Certificate  (plus even a CITES certificate for certain species) for live plant materials or else a permit for Small Lots of Seed (both obtainable from the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service - http://www.aphis.usda.gov/)  They are both free, but at this late date, you would probably not be able to obtain them in time.  Any other method is at the risk of your plant material being confiscated when you pass through customs upon re-entering the United States.

To make a long story short, I'm going to Denmark next week. I will be going to
the Copenhagen Botanical Garden. Are there any other places I should visit -
plant related?

Is there a way to figure out the legal issues behind bringing any plant material
back, either physically, or shipping? I know we have a lot of international
members, so I figured I'd try here.

Do you want to receive my plant newsletters via email?
