You have a very valid point, it sometimes takes a week or better just passing something from the US to Canada though customs.

I can attest to that. 17 days to get a box of coins/notes through customs from Canada to the US.

Here I thought the guy I paid (a friend) was terribly sick or stole my money. Bad storms knocked out his electricty so contact was a no go.

there are many good sellers on aquabid that sell cheap. also if you ask in the planted forum there are users there that sometimes send out cuttings for a small fee.

there are also reputable sellers on ebay within the states. I placed an order for all my plants through one seller and was very happy - given the prices I paid (ie: CHEAP) the plants were great

i read through 20 pages of bad feedback. and i would not go for it.
the sellers making excuses and blaming the people who gave him money for the arrival of live plants.
you could take the chance and it being a waste or going through someone with like one bad feedback instead of 78 in on year. thats all it shows is that last year.

There's a malysian dealer with good selection that has only 1 bad feedback in the last 12 months, but you still have to deal with the issues of importing and customs.

I never deal with ebay members who have less than 98% positive feedback. I'm sure you can find a US ebayer who has plants or someone on AA, as suggested.
