No update yet. I'm still hesitant to add TC plants to the store for a few reasons, mostly because of the high chance of death if not deflasked properly. But mainly I've not added them because I haven't had time to work on the store recently.
Maybe include an instruction paper with the method of getting them nice n' hardy to sun and humidity?

Also, is the international shipping still planned for the same as I last heard? Like sometime next year?

Yeah, that would definitely be required. I'd also have to make it clear to customers that the plants are extremely fragile and that they could get damaged in transit or die very easily if not properly deflasked. And that we would assume no responsibility for contamination or damage to the plants in transit.

Don't quote me on too much of the time frames, but yes, I'd love to get international shipping set up by sometime next year.

I'll probably offer cultures to international folk before that point because most countries don't require an import permit for them, just a Phytosanitary Certificate, which I should be able to get for $20 or so. The $20 Phyto certificate and the cost of shipping would still likely be a bit too much for someone to order just a flask or two (larger orders would make more sense), but it would be much less of a headache than trying to get an import permit.
