  Re: Fw: USDA regulation (seed phytos)
From: Regferns at aol.com on 2002.08.02 at 06:00:41(9172)
Earlier this year, I received information regarding the new regulations. There is an article at the Tropical Fern & Exotic Plant Society's website: www.tfeps.org/permits1.htm, or go to tfeps.org and click on the Permits button. At the end of the article there is an official USDA web address where you can see the guidelines.

I too have heard that some port cities are not following the guidelines. I do know of two cases at the L.A. facility whereby plants were confiscated even though the importers had Plant Importing Permits, but lacked phytosanitary forms.
