Re: [APD] Tropica plants
I can't speak for Tropica and the difficulties with
exporting into the US but I'm pretty darn sure that Tropic
would love to be able to sell it's plants in the USA. And
last I heard, they were still working on it. Just when they
think they have a solution that the feds will agree to, it
seems one more little thing is thrown at them. The problem
is not the will or desire in Tropica's part.
