Did you notice that the page has a phone # and e-mail address for
questions? Although they may be of as much use as the IRS hotline
that doesn't excuse you from prosecution if you follow their advice
and it's wrong, at least it's better than getting "I think I read once
that..." answers in the newsgroup.
Yes, I did email the agent. She gave me an idea of how long it takes to
get through the checkpoint, and that they are basically looking for bugs
and disease. Here is what she said:
"The inspection process is usually quite fast, and may involve only a
few questions by the agricultural inspector. If the inspector does look
at your plants and sees an insect or disease of concern, the material is
confiscated which does not take very long."
So I feel better. I am *only* taking plants that have spent their lives
inside, so I think I'll be fine.
