So next week I will be going to China for a school study tour thingy. I was thinking I could maybe get some seeds of plants.

I will be travelling to Harbin and Beijing. Any ideas or thoughts?

I don't want to buy any BONSAI CLIP POTTED GIANT OFFICE VFTs!

I grow some D. spatulata "Macau" and D. spatulata "Hong Kong", so Local varieties of D. spatulata should be available.

Also, there may be some D. indica complex and D. burmannii in Southeastern China.

Is there a Chinese CP society?
You could contact them and check out the local availability of CP seed to purchase.

Enjoy your trip.

Good growing,
Mike

Don't get caught or I believe they'll be taken away and "destroyed".

Really? When I went back from the US I took some flower seeds (couldnt get them to germinate) and nothing happened. But China will probably be different.

In the US, technically, you can only take plant material if it is not on federal land and you get the landowner’s permission. It will vary between countries.

Please ignore my previous post. I didn't look at your country of origin and I assumed you were located in the U.S. Now that I think about it I should have know better. Sorry about that.

Grab and take all that you can.

If you die or get incarcerated, the seeds you spread to the community will be a remembrance of your sacrifice you made for the greater good.

I swear I will remember your sacrifice. We could post an entire thread in your remembrance.

we are teasing you. But it is China. Please just be prudent and follow the laws. a vender should be able to tell you if its legal to export.

And have fun. Lucky you. you get to visit China
