Permits

Requirements vary depending upon the country of import. It is best to check with your local Agriculture Department for the exact permits necessary. Most countries require the use of an Import Permit. It is the importer’s responsibility to have all the necessary import permits. Note that in some countries, an original import permit (not a photocopy) needs to be presented at customs. It is the importer’s responsibility to check this and any other local requirement with the customs office beforehand to avoid any delays, for which we cannot be held responsible.

 

CITES

The Convention on the International Trade of Endangered Species was established to protect many rare animals and plants from illegal trade. All CITES-listed plants sold by Malesiana Tropicals are artificially propagated and are shipped with appropriate CITES permits.

 

Import Duties

Imports from Malaysia into most countries are duty free, or duties only apply for goods over a certain value. Payment of duties or other importation levies are the responsibility of the importer. Make sure you know all the requirements as this can cause delay at customs, for which we cannot be held responsible.

Plant Packing

All plants are packed with the same amount of care that is necessary for them to travel across our state or across the country. We start by wrapping all plants individually using methods acquired from our passed many years experience of shipping live plants.

Plants are grown in our pre-sterilized soilless media and conform with phytosanitary requirements.

 

Root Ball plants, we introduce new packing method called “Root Ball” where each plant will be clean, individually bagged and maintain some amount of moist sphagnum moss at root zone. The packing material is not growing media and is only used for packing material. The entire plant then put inside clear plastic bag and wrap with packing paper. This packing method as good as potted.

 

Potted plants have a special packing film that is taped over the soilless media to prevent the plants and media from falling out of its pot. We then cover each plant with plastic cup to protect Nepenthes pitchers/foliage.

 

After plant packing, each plants well labeled and put inside carton box with additional packing materials as necessary for safe and maximum protection.
Bare-root plants are available upon request. All bare root plants need to be treated carefully upon receipt and special care should be given to establish them successfully. Please refer to our instruction manual on Establishing Your Plants.
