I believe the Rotala Macandra SP from Japan and the Rotala sp belem are just now showing up. At least that's what I see. I'm not sure which is more rare.

I've never heard of Rotala sp. from Belem before. Be aware that if you're getting plants shipped from overseas, the shipper needs to get a phytosanitary certificate to make it legal to ship. And they aint cheap.

Are you bringing them in from an importer or something?

I haven't place the order yet for the same reason. I getting all the information about it as far as regulation and all of that.

To be hones, I'm not going to do it because is to much trouble. He told me that he has shipped before to the US as "aquarium decor".

Thanks!

Which may mean he is looking to circumvent the phytosanitary certificate. This means if your package was chosen for a search, it would be seized and destroyed.
