Hi Giant Gecko,

I don't mind BallamyTrees. God give them the biggest and best sale possible, however Admin ordered that the price should be in all sales posts in this forum. If it was considered that the price given on another page (with a link to this Ebay sale/ redirection page on this forum) fulfills the admin's recommendations, the question of the expiration of such links remains. The price simply disappears in the auction bids after some time. So even if you consider that the price is available in this entry (although it is actually only on Ebay, not on the forum), these entries, in my opinion, are inconsistent with the regulations of this forum, and they just clutter up the forum. If the Admin had entered an exception for entries regarding ebay auctions etc, the matter would be clear. Regards

ps. I have been listing on Ebay for more than 10 years. There are different possibilities there. You can fix the sale price rigidly, or you can sell it after an auction. This is clear to everyone. In both cases, the failure to specify the price in the advertisement on this forum is against the order of Admin. It is because the price is not in the forum entry, but on another page;)

Hello BallamyTrees,

although the Administrator treats some users very indulgently, and to this day has not answered my question of August 25, 2018 on the rules for placing links to the auction, please note that the ads in this section should contain prices.

The links to the auction will expire in some time and we will not be able to check the prices in this post in the future. So the informative value of your entry will disappear.

The solution would be to provide starting and ending prices in your entries (as an extension of this announcement).

Thank you in advance for understanding.

Have you tried annona glabra? From my observations it appears that it is an annona with very high adaptability. Drought in the upper layers of the soil is not a problem for Glabra, as long as it can find some moisture in the deeper layers of the soil.

Unfortunately I don't have cawesh seeds. Maybe someone else will help in this case.

Sorry for the typo in the previous post, of course it was "cawesh" and not "carwash" ;)

I have annona scleroderma plants currently available at the price of 21 USD, calculated with the cost of shipping from the current mail price list. The shipping time is unpredictable due to temporary air traffic restrictions (mail does not accept international shipments). It's hard to say how long it will last. More details about the offer I sent you on priv.

Hello posci35, what time do you need the carwash? I have ready a. scleroderma plants, but due to the epidemic I can't send shipments abroad yet and in the coming weeks.. Many sellers are grounded. When shopping from further parts of the world, unfortunately, we have to wait until the situation changes. Maybe you can get this species from your area, then it will be faster and more reliable. Regards. Dominik

People take it easy. Where the mail normally works, it's worth the wait. On the other hand in many countries, mail suspends accepting international shipments because the number of flights is falling. This is related to the epidemic. For example we cannot send a foreign letter at all in Poland (from the day 14.03 until further notice). We've been grounded for some time. Of course, if someone can't wait, it's worth asking for a refund. A legitimate seller is obliged to return the money after kindness. Leave the case open as a last resort. Richard occasionally receives mail and sometimes doesn't respond to messages. A good solution is to remind him several times;)

Friends, bureaucracy and dishonest laws can finish off any enthusiast or force him to limit his activity. Active and intelligent people are the number one enemy of every power. Vitor is a sensitive, intelligent man who has seen a lot. For this he likes to write as I do. From the first or second letter I felt that we are souls in the field of botanical passion and love for the written word. His stories about what is happening in the Amazon are terrifying. Probably seeing how their government treats active people and nature which is a world heritage, gave it up with offering seeds for some time. It remains for us to count on some changes. The passion of people such as Vitor allows you to keep at least a small fragment of nature (spreading it around the world). In this way, at least some will remain for future generations.

It's clear that you have some experience but on average people have different ideas when sowing seeds and most often if stable weather is lacking, sowing outside the greenhouse can be very risky.

As you probably know, temperature is not everything, and germinating seeds can be accidentally killed in many ways.
I think it's best to try until you succeed. There are a few good sellers in this forum, you can easily find them.

wangyouqin, did you leave the sown seeds in the greenhouse or outside?

From what I recall I bought annona coriacea in January or February and they germinated relatively well, so the theory about old seeds may be  or may not be correct. Some plants bear fruit irregularly depending on the place where trees are grown, the date of fruiting may vary. In addition, some annnona can be stored relatively long if certain conditions are met. If you do not believe the seller, ask him to take a picture of the fruit along with the newspaper in the background (so that you can see the date). If it is honest and the order is worth it, it will take a photo, and if not, then you have to answer if the seeds are fresh or not.

Anyway, if you don't believe the seller, wait until October and the matter will be solved.

I don't know if the seeds of this species are fresh

As you probably know, whether seeds are fresh depends on the date they were harvested. The easiest method is to ask the seller when the seeds have been harvested.

Guidelazeri is a good seller.

You can't buy through Mercadolivre if you don't have a Brazilian tax number. In practice, the site does not allow sales abroad.

If you can get down to Homestead, Going Bananas is your best bet!

They will be at the Leu Gardens plant sale next weekend in Orlando too.
I see on the site that they offer shipping, but they did not specify whether only the US or also abroad.

Do you know if they send abroad (internationally)?

just marked down the Hilo buddhah canes over at the season here is about over for this variety, the rest will be grown for potted plants or replanted and out of stock otherwise. cheers.

I'd love to buy some reeds from them, but they don't ship outside the US. Is there anyone who can politely pick up a package from them and send it to me in Europe? Of course, I would gladly repay you for such a favor. Thanks

SeaWalnut full agreement when it comes to wrong copying solutions from other countries.
Maybe you join the protest and send them some flowers? Only that they are not cut, because sending such is legal;)

EU bureaucrats think we are idiots pushing us crop protection kit. As if mushrooms and tincture could not spread on cut or dry flowers (which can be sent without restrictions ;)

Azorean, at least there wa adventure and adrenaline;) This is priceless.

Please do not quote this but,
I have such a nice idea that we, all of us from EU, exactly how we are sitting here in the forum, send anonymously these morons in Brussels for a few life or dead plants to the addresses of their offices with the with some funny annotation e.g. : WITHOUT PASSPORT you finished bureaucrats:) If you are pretty blonde please kiss me on my a... if you can ;)

The whole EU as a union becomes more and more of a nonsense every year. New bureaucrats pass laws to regulate every aspect of life. No wonder UK is leaving and probably others will follow. Poor countries from East shut up because they get some leftover money as subsidies while the whole countries are managed by corporations which buy all the agriculture land and cut all the forests. Sure by all means the current strategy is to transform all people into rats working for big corporations. The EU started to about freedom to move thing and people around Europe and make it a open space. EU commission becomes more and more a dictator submitted to corporations, no more freedom, soon they will tell you when to got to toilet and how much water to flush.
They put restrictions on some tropical plants like papayas that have no chance to grow outside in EU even in Spain.
I fully agree with what you wrote.
As far as I know if the plants are send within EU as ornamentals, not as fruiting trees they don't actually need passporting.

You're wrong. Please check with your government sources. From a legal point of view, it doesn't matter what type of plant is in the package. What matters is that it is a plant and the contract is concluded remotely. Plants passporting is mandatory in this case. Due to the aforementioned crazy directive of 14/12/2019, the same guidelines currently apply throughout the all EU countries. Without passports, you can only sell plants in direct sales.

As a curiosity I will write that before the New Year I read the Polish bill related to this directive. Finally, there are several dozen organizations that were asked to submit comments. They wrote back only two (say two). So-called associations take care of people's interests and are interested in their affairs. That's why this mess (EU) can still exist. People have a great deal of what is going on. Anyway, it is not surprising, after the directive describing the curvature of a banana, hardly anyone takes this crap (EU) seriously.

As a second curiosity, I can say that the directive on plants and seeds (and other provisions / directives) in force across the EU from what I know can be challenged by any citizen. Also if anyone feels strong enough, I encourage you to fight "legal" :) You have my support in advance.

Woa, that's a new level of stalking.
Sometime I am glad I live in Italy where essentially everybody is an outlaw :D .
I always knew Italy was cool, but I didn't think it was so cool :)

Quote from: 00christian00

I am mostly worried about e-shop stopping sales, since I bought 90% of my plants online both in Italy and EU.
I think seeds were prohibited even before here, but nobody gave a damn because I doubt anybody even knew.
Different thing is if sellers within EU refuse to sell because they KNOW about new rules.

It will probably take some time before the news spreads and the shops adapt. As you wrote: during this time some will limit sales until they adjust, but in the long run everything will normalize (especially for large online stores that have no way out).

Seeds from EU with transport option only inside EU - with no documents - it is no problem. They are difficult to catch without the cooperation of transport companies (couriers, post offices, etc.), so I would not worry. It is enough to take seeds for an amateur who officials will do nothing. Worse for shipments from outside the EU. Anyway, the main responsibility in this situation is on the side of the sender to the EU, but here can be a psychological effect. Those who respect the law but they don't want to do paperwork or  they will not want to comply with regulations and they will lose parcels as a result of confiscation -  will stop sending to the EU.

One thing seems almost certain to me now: Live products (from internet shops) such as plants and seeds originally from outside EU will be probably unfortunately more expensive this spring or in subsequent seasons. Companies will almost certainly raise prices. It is also difficult for me to imagine that amateurs keep their prices low. Finally, any costs and penalties can also affect them.

Honza, for now, officials will admonish, not punish, but situations probably will change. Maybe it won't be that bad. I think it might be another dead recipe in some sense. It is hard to imagine that they will open any private packages with plants and check documents :D However, with larger and regular sales, it is worth considering to comply with regulations.

I have read the applicable laws quite thoroughly. In Poland they called it the "Act on the prevention of agro-phages". Who works longer feels what's going on. They hid the general restrictions under the guise of fighting imaginary threats, and most "stuck" all activity on the Internet.

The most painful changes concern online stores. Currently, every plant sold via the Internet (distance contract) must have a passport. It doesn't matter if you are a professional seller or an amateur who has arranged through the forum to exchange plants with a friend elsewhere. You must (on pain of a penalty) attach a passport. Passporting applies to shipments within the EU. For shipments outside Europe, they arrive outside of passporting - the requirements of the specific country to which the shipment is directed. For example, an agreement with the USDA must be attached to the USA, when sent to Japan, it will be a phytosanitary certificate, etc.

Be glad that you can still send plants with restrictions, but you can. In a while, they may even prohibit all plants shipments. The lobby of large producers is on hand to make producers cease to exist. As usual, it's about money and not about any protection. Pests know no borders and do not read permits. All virulent organisms move despite restrictions imposed by humans.

In my country, one wise man said this: now ecologicalism has become a new, dangerous religion which is trying to replace the existing foundation on which Europe (Christianity) was built. Due to such activities, man is as if in second place - ecology is more important. People are trying to impose certain solutions, thinking of the fact that they will avoid the problems of cyclical climate change or natural pest moving. Unfortunately, they are nonsense. We are abducted by the ubiquitous bureaucracy which is getting bigger like a snowball.

Who works longer in this profession knows that almost every plant from the market is wearing pests (those that have survived repeated chemization and will show what they can in month or one yer, but will be). It is similar in amateur crops. Pests are a natural and inseparable part of plants (when I write pests, I mean insects that humans consider unnecessary or harmful). How will the situation change after December 14, 2019 in Europe?

Until now, plants with pests were sent without documents, and for free (or only with the name of the plant and documents certifying payment of taxes). Now plants with pests will be sent with tax documents, additional "plant passports" and we will pay extra for it.

The worst part is that the governments is trying to draw new taxes, fees for their ideas from all sides, and few societies express their dissatisfaction. An example would be yellow vests in France. There probably still people have "eggs".

However, this is not enough. With every such stupid change limiting our freedoms, there should be hundreds of thousands or millions of people on the streets of Budapest, Warsaw, Prague or Berlin (in Paris already). Then the rulers, introducing any restrictions or a new tax a thousand times would wonder if it serves people or can it be introduced etc. For now, we have a warning in the form of Brexit that EU policy is one big socialist (sorry for the expression) guano.

Thanks for the time spent reading :)

Merry Xmas to all.

I sent support of $ 10. Thanks for maintaining the forum

Patrick, it seems that server maintenance costs
which you have to pay are extremely high. Maybe it's time to look for someone else?

I have a trusted man who I work with - when it comes to hosting (we work together about 10 years). Here in my country, server maintenance costs can be few times lower than in US. In case of need I can contact you.

Seeing the first part of the movie (3:50) probably many will think that the skin is similar to salacca edulis, but inside it looks completely different. Maybe it's some other type of salacca?
