  Sending seeds and tubers
From: Craig Smith <craigsmith at sprintmail.com> on 1998.09.22 at 10:44:22(2620)
Wilbert,

You seem to have a lot of experience sending tubers and seeds all over
the world so I have a question for you. There is a fellow in South
Africa who has offered to send me a couple of Ariod tubers.
Unfortunately we have not had any experience with sending tubers into the
USA. I asked the Aroid-L about this but the only advice was for little
seeds. These would be dormant tubers; 1 - 2 inch diameter. Have you
figured out how to do this efficiently. We'd send them by air. I don't
know if they have FedEx or UPS there. Any suggestions would be
appreciated.

I know that FedEx does serve SOuth Africa, having used the service. It is a
bit expensive. I believe UPS and other "overnight" services also provide
service.

Generally speaking there is little difficulty sending or receiving plants
through mail sources.  I have received hundreds of plants and tons
of seed over the years from sources all over the world.  From my experience
the primary issues to be concerned about are:

PLANTS.
