...I'd just like to chime in here for a second. I saw Dany's basement when I went to pick up my stuff...............a plethora of plants and boxes everywhere!!!...........just trying to bring appreciation levels to where they need to be here!
A HUGE shout out to Danny for running this order! Thanks a ton! I really appreciate. And special thanks for the greenhouse tour when I picked up my plants. Awesome to ogle at plants I don't have space for! Cheers!
Do you have any Heliamphora that you're dividing and/or thinking about selling? Let me know!
Thanks guys! Everyone paid on time and replied very quickly, really made the process easier.
I tried my best to find all the 'hidden' fees and such (lloyd knows). The paperwork was a long process and sorting them as well. Shoutout to craig for helping me sort them out! Took a couple hours.
Import permit - costs $35 and lasts 3 years Phytosanitary certificate - issued by exporter & costs money CITES (optional for specific species) - see here www.ec.gc.ca/cites/default.asp?lang=En&n=BA634294-1 Note: Appendix I that are bred in captivity for commercial purposes are treated as Appendix II but still requires documentation
Shipping: EMS = receive via CanadaPost (potential tax 13%) Air freight = more documentation and form 5272 (I think).. +brokerage service, etcetc. a lot more work. I didn't look into it.
Make sure value of goods is under $2500 so it may participate in CBSA's Courier Low Value Shipment (CLVS) Program. If value is above $2,500 it may be stuck for a longer period of time.
