Default Who wants to split an Agristarts order?

So who wants in? Was thinking of the following nanners/plants:
D namwah
D orinoco
Raja puri
Truly tiny
D. cavendish/mahoi
Siam ruby
Maybe: Viente cohol and/or D red if enough people want them

T.R. hovey papaya
Sugar loaf pineapples

Anybody wants anything else make a suggestion. The minimum order is 2 trays, each tray consists of 72 plants. However if we pay an $18 assortment fee, we can get 3 different varieties per try, so can get 6 different varieties per 2 trays. Also can get more depending on how many people want something an how many plants each person wants. I'm in for a couple of each kind. Can split the initial shipping and plant costs and then everyone has to get shipping from whoever gets the initial order. I could be that person or maybe someone else is more qualified. Any comments/concerns post them here!

O yes its far too early to ship here yet but lots to orchestrate. Also might be good to put the order in incase they don't have something immediately available.

Maybe everyone should list what they want and how many. This way we can work on filling an order.

That's a great idea, wished I would have thought of it this past September.

I could have potted them for 7 months and shipped everyone large corms in the Spring.

There's no problems with shipping Canada to US? Depending on price, I might be interested too if you need more people opting in.

If prices are as high as US to Canada you might be better doing something else. :^)

Ya its prolly best if someone in the us gets the initial order so it only has to cross the border once maybe. If someone in the states got the order and opened it, would they need a seperate phyto cert? I know people have shipped across the border w/o one but not sure if that was just smuggling lol.

The shipping requirements are easier to Canada than the importing into the U.S. APHIS would require permits to import live plants, especially that large of quantity.

If we have multiple members in the US it'd be easier like you said to ship the initial order to the US and then divide it up from there.

Agristarts ice cream is a tall namwah. Most of the companys that have the (not) ice cream get them from agristarts.

Thanks. That's what I've been hearing. You can scratch that off my list. I'm going to end up trying to get a true one from across the country in California.

The two I supposedly have one is a TC that I know came from Agristarts and the other I do not know the source.
