911! emergency question taking aquatic plants on plane
 
:spy::yield::doh::horn:

HI I'm from DFW Texas, and been here in on vacation. I ended up buying some aquatic plants and need to know if I need to do anything special to them back to dfw. can I carry them in my carry on bag, or do I need to put them in my suit case, or have them mailed? do I need a permit. thanks for the help.
I leave in the morning to go back home.
Joey

I got them home a few rotella sp. and some anubias. left them in the bag. let some of the air out. put that bag in a shopping bag then in to my suit case.

i normally ship back but you can pack them in ziplocks sans water for a few hours in your carry on if needed.

I know you are already home, though I've travelled back with plants too, carryon rule is less than 4 ounces of water. the plants just need to stay most and easily handle several days in a ziploc bag without water (if you use a papertowel, make sure it is moistened).
