I wanted to bring in a case of Buceph. plants for the forum however after much work, research and communications with officials:

Bucephalandra are not allowed for export out of Borneo due to the fact they are not commercially grown. Since the plants take so long to grow it is not a viable business option. Exporters cannot provide photo-sanitary certificates due because the plants are not recognized. There are no commerical growers of Buceph plants on Earth.

All Bucephalandra in this country have been illegally obtained if you like it or not.

You can't fight with me regarding this. All Buceph are smuggled out of Borneo and enter illegal trade.
