paph armeniacums from China? I didn't think they could ship direct to us without going threw our government.

I also noticed a few flasks of paphs and vandas and such from Thailand, I think? Check it out at. Just type in, Orchid flask Paphiopedilum

Yeah, I got the one about the armeniacums, too. I've chatted with that vendor before, and they can't provide CITES, so they'll be illegal. However, they claim that their unmarked packages make it through with no problems. After reading the "End of the Line" thread, I'm almost tempted.... but not quite enough :)

Offered CITES on $5 armeniacum and micranthum? How much did you have to pay for said paperwork? It's painfully obvious that those are wild collected.
