As I live in the European Union I can freely order from other EU countries.Do note that shipping plants across borders will likely require the proper paperwork to be done.
If you are attempting to order plants from other countries without the proper paperwork, it is likely a federal offense.
small quantities of plants said:From here:
Trade in plants & plant products from non-EU countries - European Commission
But thanks for pointing that out.
Bump: ...Or maybe it's not worth risking to order from outside of the EU.
I can't find the same exemptions on this page:
As far as I know, sending plants marked as a gift is not permissible - phytosanitary certificates are still required.Because I can't order them directly, I got a friend in the UK to order them from Germany and send it to me as a gift - making it legal (I didn't make up these weird rules)
I couldn't find any local ground covers. I also struggled to find shrimp. Finally found one guy who sold me some blue and red jobs, and another guy who netted me some ghost shrimp. With the ghosts he gave me a truckload of wild spinach plants. I stuck them in the tank and it was all eaten by the fish over the weekend. My tank is rather wild looking. I'll take a pic if those plants I bought manage to take. Where about in DBN is your wife from?
