Can I bring aquarium plants from Thailand back to the U.S.?

I'm taking a 2 week vacation back to Thailand in December and was wondering if I can bring some aquarium plants back to California, USA. I know you can't bring fresh fruits or raw meat because the safety of bringing over foreign pests and parasites or diseases but not sure about aquarium plants. Anyone have a clue?

Same issue. Unless you have documentation about their phytosanitary conditions, etc. you can't bring them in. The regulations also extend to soil, seeds, etc. I would read up on it, as you can get in a lot of trouble!
