    Can somebody help me to find in the States sellers willing to ship to Europe ? I cannot find here any of the species that are easily available in USA. My dream is to have some good Fanerogamae plant (any one) into my marine-aquarium. Right here we can only have access to Posidonia, which gets a bit too big for the average aquarium. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

    Shipping plants to many places is prohibited and they won't do well after a 2 week journey in the dark.

    So I don't have any chance for my purpose ? What if I post it to someone in the States and let the person bring the plants here ? About one week the estimate duration of the transport.

    Halophia is a great small seagrass. But it would not make the trip, 3-4 days is about the fastest ship, maybe DHL, might run 100$ USA to ship it that method.


    Customs slows things down.

    Shipping plants over long distances is not a wise idea since they don't get the necessary conditions of growth while being conveyed.While don't you consult the specialists for an alternative way of getting species that you desire.

    There are no specialists here. We do not have marine variety concerning fanerogamae and macro-algae, well...yes, may be about macro algae just a little bit.


    Species listed are very few. It is only from the States that I can get them but I have to travel directly there to do so.

    P.S.


    Why the pictures I posted are showed so small ? Almost invisible. The ones I have on my computer are much bigger. What happened ?
