Legal cultures to US from abroad?
    #1344374 - 03/01/03 06:53 AM (14 years, 27 days ago)

I figured this would be a suitable place to post this topic. If not...

A fellow shroomery-ite sent some edible cultures from Europe on the 18th or Feb. They were numbered on little baggies (the species names were not written). They have not arrived yet, and I am becoming worried that customs intercepted them. As I said, they are legal(edible) cultures. I do frequent this site, but I don't grow psilocybin containing species anymore. Should I be worried about being put on a list of some kind. Is it legal to have culinary species sent from abroad? Has anyone else encountered anything similar.

Thanks

A guy from USA sent me some spores prints.
I never received them, and I trust the guy.

I was a little bit worried even if the spores prints were legal.

Your friend should have labelled them with a species and declared them as biologicals/spore print specimens on the Customs declaration. Customs guys get a little purturbed when they find a package that looks like it could be contraband :wink:

You shouldn't have too many problems importing prints....but for live cultures etc. you'll need photosanitary certification...which gets pricey and involved.

It may look like a button mushroom right now, but wait until you see how it grows!

Guess I'l just keep my fingers crossed that they were temporalily lost in the mail system.  If they don't come in the next week, I'll consider it a lost cause. :frown:

thanks for the replys

I must say that I have better experience sending cultures from Europe to USA than to any other country. I usually declare and label them as "edible mushroom cultures" and they always got trough.
