How do I ship plants for a long journey across seas. I'm stationed in Japan and my jungle Val won't stop sending out runners so I might start selling them or just give them away instead of tossing them. Our base sends mail out pretty quick but I still don't know how long it will take.

I don't imagine customs will allow it...I would just try to sell them locally.

I received live plants here from America without going through customs. Our mail doesn't get looked at by the Japanese. Its loaded on a plane and sent away. I wish I could sell locally if I could speak Japanese.

I'd suggest selling them in Japan or not at all.
If you're planning on sending them back to the USA I would advise against it.

Do you have a permit to export plants into the United States?
Do you have a photo sanitary certificate?

The mail might not be checked by customs in Japan, but it would be checked when it hits the USA. In most cases they only target the buyer of the goods.
