Not true in many states. Don't look if you don't want to know lol.

This is NOT true for international orders, you need to get a photosanatary certificate to import them and that doesn't cover soil, there is a separate permit for soil, and in general it's much much more expensive to import plants with soil. For carnivorous plants the cheapest way is to grow them in tissue culture and ship the tissue culture.

Also, USDA does have jurisdiction on plants traveling interstate, and many states do check stuff getting imported for the proper permits.

This might be true, as we recently had one of our packages held until we called the local authority to tell them the species of plants in the box.

Not to get into a who know more contest, (which is the main reason I leave forums alone) but...

I was referring mainly to the post regarding plants being shipped from the US to California. Shipments coming from outside of the United States is different. Luckily we hold all necessary permits/licences/certificates that allows us to legally send and receive plant material.

I would venture to say that those who get in trouble are not doing it legally to begin with.

I will be shipping plants from my nursery on Monday 5/9 of next week to another member on this forum who lives in CALIFORNIA. I will of course include a copy of our nursery license, and our federally recognized compliance agreement inside the box. I have zero worries that it will be refused entry.
