Quick update, unfortunately EMS is the only shipping method PE can use. I haven't used this before and I've heard bad things about shipping plants via EMS so he's going to be first sending me a test plant so I can figure out the import process. Worst case, I have a friend who's having having a shipment come in from Taiwan in early August that I can tag along with but the shipping cost would be a bit higher


Im opting to tag along with a friends shipment that I mentioned above. We should be expecting the shipment towards the end of July. The plants are being sent via air cargo so they should only be in transit for a day or two and arrive in excellent condition. I haven't gotten a final cost yet but if it's higher than the initially quoted $100-150 USD I'll cover the difference. Everyone can expect to contribute at most ~US$18 towards group shipping.
