Actually the person to thank is a Dutchman who once worked for Tropica
and then set out on his own to import into the U.S. My source (which isn't
Tropica) has him denouncing the quality/health of Tropica's plants which
resulted in the product of both companies being banned by the Department.
That may also be the origin of the use of the sterile fiberglass potting
technique. It's a shame really.
