 Hi!
 
 I  am  working  on  a  personal  connection  and  seems  that  I  will  be  able  to  clear  consignment  from  the  customs.  So,  I  want  to  know  about  some  plant  dealers  who  I  can  trust.  I  am  planning  to  get  plants  from  Singapore,  Thailand  and  asia  pacific  in  general.
 
 Kindly  help.  Feedback  from  people  who  has  already  transacted  with  dealers  and  have  had  a  good  deal  will  help  me  to  great  extent.
 
 Cheers,

 All  the  best.  I  think  most  of  the  overseas  suppliers  should  be  reliable.  I  do  not  see  any  reason  for  any  of  them  to  give  you  a  bad  deal.
 Your  venture  I  hope  will  translate  to  lower  prices  of  exotic  aquatic  plants  to  our  members  in  general.  Thumb Up

 Hi,
 
 I  have  received  plants  from  Fareastaquarist  3  times  without  any  problem.  Her  plants  are  always  in  good  condition  &  most  importantly  plants  are  delivered  at  my  doorsteps  within  24  hr  after  the  dispatch  from  Singapore  so  I  haven’t  gone  through  the  hassle  of  customs.

 Agree  with  Bhaskar.  We  passed  large  order  as  a  group  to  Karin  in  past  3  times.  And  without  any  problem  we  got  the  box  delivered  to  the  door  step  on  overnight  courier.  Plants  were  intact  and  quality  is  superb  without  any  miss.  No  customs  no  duty  involved  inbetween.

 But  how  does  this  work?  As  far  as  I  know,  there  are  restrictions  on  such  things  right?  If  this  is  allowed  legally,  can  someone  give  me  the  contact  details  of  this  dealer?  A  website  or  email  address?

 You  are  not  allowed  to  do  it  legally.  It  is  not  a  customs  issue  in  the  first  place,  the  MoEF  has  to  clear  it.  You  will  get  away  with  it  till  the  plants  show  up  on  a  scanner.

 Baby,  that  can  happen  when  the  plants  aren't  packed  like  the  fish  in  water.  As  Rahul  said,  Getting  Away  is  the  key.   Thumb Up

 "Fortune  favors  the  brave".  Life  is  mostly  about  getting  away.  Or  else  each  and  everyone  one  of  us  would  be  importing  plants,  fishes  and  accessories  from  the  far  east  and  the  LFS  would  be  catching  flies.  
 Severmkid,  I  salute  you.

 That  is  the  general  idea.
 
 I  will  start  with  small  consignment  and  icrease  on  the  size  gradually.  This  is  my  plan.

 Couple  of  Singapur  dealers  are  dealing  with  Indian  Aquarists  for  a  long  time.  So  they  know  how  to  flick  the  inbetween  customs  hassels.  Very Happy  If  you  are  not  ready  to  go  for  a  large  order  right  now,  you  always  can  go  with  small  orders.  But  shipping  cost  will  be  same  for  a  small  orders  as  large.

 A  friend  and  myself  are  planning  to  order  from  Karin.  If  any  one  else  wants  to  join  then  they  should  get  in  touch  with  me  for  further  details  thru  pm.  It  would  be  convenient  for  all  the  parties  as  the  shipping  charge  will  be  equally  divided.

 All  the  best.
