Re: hawaii

Not Theresa, but my last visit to the Big Island, we brought home orchids from a specialty nursery. They packed them for carry on (its COLD in the luggage section) and affixed an inspection sticker to the box. The commercial nurseries on the islands work with the state to assure that you won't be importing noxious pests. Most orchids do not grow in soil, which makes this easy. The packing was impeccable and the plants hardly knew they had left Hawai'i!

OH! If you can, please tell me how you brought the orchids in. Carry on?
in your luggage? bare root? did you need any special paperwork? Where
did you purchase the orchids from? Hope that you don't mind these
questions. See, I went through hell to find out information about
bringing orchids in to the mainland, but didn't get much information. I
called the Hawaiian Plant Quarantine Dept and again didn't get much, I
was told that plants must be inspected by them before leaving Hawaii!
