Be careful, most likely those plants have not been precultivated. The owner of Sun Moon was in China couple of weeks ago. Check the roots of the micranthums especially, and cut the flowers emergently.

They may have been at the WOC but the helanae are not deemed legal in your country. Canada issued a CITES import permit for them, as we are legally allowed to own them.

the plants have nice roots and they look like they have been in cultivation for some time, and may have been from flask. they roots had some growing media on them (stuck to them) and it was treefern. so if they were wild collected they have spent enough time at sun moon to grow thick roots and have them attach to the media.
