Bucephalandra from Indonesia

I am wondering if anyone has had any experience with ordering bucephalandra from a ebay seller in indonesia. Its not somthing i am really comfortable with but the prices are good and i havent had very good luck getting them in the states. I have had to pay very high prices for some low quality plants. Anyone with some previous experience who can give me some advice?

Importing plants from abroad requires a phytosanitary certificate; without one, it is illegal to do so.

The onus is on the importer to ensure that all documents are in order, and if not, there is the possibility of being prosecuted and being incarcerated.

I would advise you not to purchase from overseas vendors unless you specifically have the paperwork.

If the prices were low I wouldve given it a shot. But atm its cold and the import papers is a problem. So better off not buying overseas.
