If you choose the cheap (or so it should be) shipping it will take over a month , including the customs process, to get the corms , so you can order already...

I should get my order next Monday... just got a phone call with customs' officers

The officers told me the new rules valid throughout every EU custom.
No more than 5 corms per package if you are not a nursery or a wholesaler.
The papers, including Phitosanitary certificate, a payment recipt and a copy of you identity card and fiscal code must be attached outside the package , otherwise the custom will hold it for inspection and they will ask you the papers again(and it will take at least a week to get thei communication by mail).
The payment recipt must match exactly with the value declared byr the seller on the form attached to the package.

It would be better to send all the paper in advance to thenseller so he can propely prepare the package and , maybe , avoid a long and dangerous stopover at the custom.

I've already informed Thailandplant about it , so he knows what he has to do.... ATGTREE who offer the variegated tanee and Namwah , reply to your mail once every 3 weeks, so be carefull with him ...
