This apparently set off all sorts of alarm bells at the US customs office, which held up the package and is requiring that I fill out a Plant and Plant Product Declaration Form. Evidently this is to make sure I'm not importing endangered rain forest mahogany or something like that. Among the many questions that I can't answer are: Plant Scientific Name - Genus...
