  Sauromatum venosum seeds arrived as mailed!
From: jbauer <jbauer at concordnc.com> on 1997.12.20 at 21:33:29(1774)
Hi all Aroiders,

I am happy to announce that everybody that I mailed the Sauromatum
venosum seeds received them:

Sue Zunino, McKinleyville Ca; Doug Burdic, Florence Or; Don Martinson,
Wauatosa WI and David Constantine, Somerset TA7 9Pl UK

I mailed the seeds in a regular letter envelope without any permit. So
far the FEDS have not bothered me.

A picture of Sauromatum venosum can be viewed here

Thanks Dr Fausto of Italy for supplying us with these seeds.

Everybody, please check back with me next year to see how my Sauromatum
venosum seeds are doing.

So why would they? This is something they wouldn't have the least interest
in--it's perfectly proper.

Goodmorning Carlo,
Thanks for asking.
Several Aroiders went into detail with several ways how I should acquire
a permit to mail seeds. Had I obtained a legal permit to mail the seeds
it would not have been worth it.
The FED thing was a little humor.

I usually send seed with only a customs declaration. Nothing has ever been
held up. However, the USDA permit has no cost and is worth it when I
travel and bring back goodies.

Everything going out in something other than a standard envelope will get a
little green customs sticker. Seed, however, does not need a permit. Nor
does it require one within the country.
