Devastating News!

We have learned today from the US Department of Agriculture that as of 2/23/2023, Conophytum are now on the CITES III list and we cannot export seeds without a CITES permit. However you will need a permit that costs $100 and you will need a Phytosanitary which costs $76.00. Our shipping cost is $16.00. So all of the needed things to ship them out of the US will now potentially cost $200.00.

We do not carry CITES permits at this time and the list of reasons why we do not is long and difficult. I am thinking we will make a video soon on this topic.

We are pretty floored but not surprised due to the poaching situation in South Africa that has been an issue for several years now.

Please email if you are outside of the US and have any further questions at this time.
